I can look into it, but I can't make any guarantee we'll be able to support it. There's a pretty decent amount of single-country-specific code we'd have to retrofit in our backend. If that can be done cleanly then I think we could do it - likely by adding EU as a separate country/region selector.

When viewing /list/ part lists, the history link is associated with your browser session. However, when viewing your saved part lists in your account, those URLs start with /user/Alonmishaelov/saved/. The history link there is associated with that saved part list.

If you closed your browser and it reset your history, you were viewing the /list/ part list history, and not the actual saved part list history.

Please read the rest of my comment, specifically this part:

It was starting to devolve into a bunch of people talking past each other.

The warning about posting stuff that's deliberately inflammatory relates to general comments as well as topics and applies to everyone here, not just you.

I deleted your topic. If you think that's censorship, too bad.

It was starting to devolve into a bunch of people talking past each other.

If you want to post topics where you actively listen and consider points of others, cool. If you want to treat topics like your personal soap box to be short with other people who disagree with you, then no, not cool. Take that somewhere else.

Most posts people can behave themselves and treat others with respect. But it seems like lately some of the political posts are having people from multiple sides lose their cool. So if it looks like it's getting out of hand all around, I'm probably going to delete it. If it's one user causing problems, they'll get warned. If it's a user that's been warned previously, maybe even was banned from previous accounts for similar reasons (ahem), then be warned that people could get banned in the process.

It's my house. You want to hang out here and chat? Cool. Just keep it polite and respectful. Don't post stuff that's deliberately inflammatory.

Yep! When viewing your saved part list, there's a "History" link. That'll be the history for that saved part list. You should be able to find the revision prior to saving over it.

  • 3 months ago

Ok it should be fixed now. It turns out that the issue wasn't socket related, but CPU series / chipset related. The underlying compatibility code was marking the sockets cross compatible correctly. However, we had inadvertently flagged the C612 chipset as not compatible with the Xeon E5 series. That's been fixed, so you should now see the appropriate CPUs and motherboards showing compatible.

Comment reply on Forum Topic "Is conservatism inherently bad?"

Here are two:

Strom Thurmond

Thurmond switched parties because of his opposition to the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and his support for Republican presidential candidate Senator Barry Goldwater.

On September 16, 1964, Thurmond confirmed he was leaving the Democratic Party to work on the presidential campaign of Barry Goldwater, charging it with having "abandoned the people" and having repudiated the U.S. Constitution as well as providing leadership for the eventual takeover of the U.S. by socialistic dictatorship. He called on other Southern politicians to join him in bettering the Republican Party.

Albert Watson:

Like Thurmond, Watson was an open and unashamed segregationist. Both supported Barry Goldwater's campaign for President. While Watson headed the South Carolina "Democrats for Goldwater" organization, Thurmond went as far as switching parties and becoming a Republican on September 17, 1964. Partly because of his support for Goldwater, Watson was reelected without opposition as Goldwater carried South Carolina, the first Republican to have done so since Rutherford B. Hayes in 1876. The House Democratic Caucus stripped Watson of his seniority for supporting Goldwater. Another Deep South congressman, John Bell Williams of Mississippi, lost his seniority for supporting Goldwater as well. Declaring he would "not sit around and be bullied by northern liberals," Watson resigned from Congress on February 1, 1965.[7] He then announced that he would run in the special election for his old seat on June 15, 1965—as a Republican.

I mean, just some basic research about the politics shows there was serious contention about the Civil Rights Act and segregation that led to changes in voting (and in the two above, changes in party affiliation). Do you have counterproof that that didn't happen?

Root_User, if you actually want to discuss what you posted above, feel free to make it a separate topic post.

Comment reply on Forum Topic "Please change the motherboard compatibility warning"

  • 3 months ago
  • 3 points

I understand what you're proposing, but here's a bit of the counterpoint: Just recently we had someone carry their build into our office so we could flash their BIOS using an older CPU. It is not uncommon. Even if updated BIOS versions are shipping from the manufacturer, there's no way of knowing how old various motherboard stock is at each retailer.

If we downgrade the warning to a note, we'll get absolutely hammered by first time builders who think our compatibility checking is broken when their builds don't boot. Getting a substitute CPU and going through a BIOS update process is fine for experienced builders, but not for first-timers.

You said:

That said, however, the more I look at it, the more I seem to realize that the general viewpoint amongst liberal people is that conservatism is the scum of the earth and that they are all violent idiots.

That's a pretty big generalization to make about liberal people, no? To quote you also:

You are free to disagree, but to me this seems to be a really big generalization.

(And)

calling out all conservatives for being stuck in the past is somewhat ignorant.

I think making broad generalizations about anyones beliefs, or lumping together a diverse demographic into one label, whether it is conservative or liberal, is pretty ignorant.

Comment reply on Forum Topic "Price history graphics get broken by excessive values"

To follow up, I've rolled out a change that price graphs will now cap out the y-axis max if there are prices exceeding three standard deviations from the mean. That should fix the graph you listed plus several others that were exhibiting similar behavior. When the x-axis gets capped though the hover legend will still show the actual outlier prices.

What's your definition of rich? Does hard work entitle you to be rich? Are taxes punishment?

I ask because I'm interested in your take on those questions and not because I have any particular agenda. But it kinda feels like your questions presuppose a position that isn't yet established here.

It may be a commonly used word in the communities that you participate in, but it also may be perceived differently among the group it targets. Don't minimize the opinions or feelings of others - that's not going to lead to fruitful conversation. If you really want to engage in authentic talk, seek first to understand, then tell your side. Avoid telling any group what their beliefs are and which of those are valid or not, especially if it is a group you are not part of. Speak for yourself, not for others. It'll lend to a much more productive discussion.

Comment reply on Forum Topic "Price history graphics get broken by excessive values"

Yep, we've seen this in some other situations too. At first we would just remove the price history around that time window. But it's been prevalent enough across other retailers too that that's probably not a viable long-term strategy. I'll see if we can come up with a better min/max y-axis value approach.

Comment reply on Forum Topic "What is reCAPTCHA?"

  • 4 months ago
  • 6 points

The reCAPTCHA makes it harder to automate various things on the site, such as registrations and logins. It checks various aspects of your IP, browser, how you click the button, etc, to determine the risk level of you being a bot instead of a human.

The main reason we use it on our login page is to counter credential stuffing. That's where someone goes through a list of username/password pairs they got from a breach of another site, and tries to log into this site using those credentials. If someone used the same username/password on a different site, then the attacker would be able to log in here as well. It's pretty common these days to see automated login attempts at very high rates iterating through a list of stolen username/password pairs. You can do a few things to mitigate that kind of attack:

  • You can block or rate limit based on IP. But that's broken if the attacker uses a large selection of IPs (think 10,000+) and distributes the login attempts across a huge swath of them.
  • You can rate limit based on username. But that's broken if the attacker is only doing one unique username/password pair per attempt.
  • You can put reCAPTCHA on the login page. That doesn't prevent someone logging in with stolen credentials, but it does typically block rapid automated attempts.

We also implement it on registration to prevent automated account generation by spammers.
