I just happened to glance at the main page, and noticed how long it's been since anything new was posted.
In 2021 Akili, Tamra and I are still regulars on the site. Kenlow and some of the others still show up too, at varying intervals.
The largest difference between now and the aughts, really, is families and careers and life and all. It generally means less time available for random personal projects.
That said, we are still always working on something. At some point we just stopped posting about them on the public portion of the site!
I'm probably posting this because I've sworn off social media for a while, and have a day off from work

*sigh* Epic UPS wasn't quite Epic enough. Thanks to an extended power outage of an unknown duration, all of SR temporarily went down this afternoon when the battery backup finally failed. Akili plans to see if he can add extra battery capacity without spending unreasonable amounts of money.

As it has been so long since any updates have been posted here, I thought I would share that Codex has now been up and running nonstop for 358 days!

Due to finding an outstanding bargain, and the creation of a custom adapter, Codex is now running on an epic-level uninterruptable power supply, which should provide gratuitous amounts of uptime in the event of a power failure.

The server has received its memory upgrade, and is now running at a full 5GB of RAM (and currently using a minuscule fraction of that). But it was cheap, and we should be covered for a long time to come.
It has also been relocated to receive better cooling, and is now equipped with its own dedicated UPS, although eventually the cheap Tripplite it is using will be replaced with something more hardy.

Welcome to Codex!
Splitreflection, all and sundry, now lives on a brand new server in Arizona, under the care of Akili the Lion. That means more bandwidth (something like an order of magnitude) as well as more CPU and more RAM (the ram is actually on order - should arrive shortly). And yes, the new server is named Codex.
Keep an eye out for bugs, I'd be rather amazed if we didn't have at least one or two.

Well. That sucked ridiculously. As you may know, I spent last week on vacation in Hawaii. And two days into it, my DSL router... well, it just FORGOT how to connect to the internet. So SplitReflection was down for the duration. It's back up now... but I'm pretty unhappy with the whole affair. Expect some progress on the DistributedServer project in the coming weeks (and maybe a new DSL router as well).

I updated the site today, with some much-needed attention.
Got rid of the blue background from old pages, as well as reorganized the Projects and Games pages.

Some very belated Boffer Pics. Pictures from both the adventure to kill the dragon that Pearl put together, but also the last event Akili made it to in San Ramon.

RussellMUCK users may be startled by a new login screen.
Russell was feeling creative. If you can find him, blame him.
If you like it, Akili will be more than happy to take the credit.

Regarding this year's Costume Party. Okay the Theme is official, and it is April, so no excuses about not having enough time to think of a costume this year :p (October 27). And the theme is:
Myths Legends and Folklore
Here are some ideas for you to further prevent last minute costumes:
Sleepy Hollow, Robin Hood, The Odyssey, Atlantis, Fairies, Selkies, Jenny Green Teeth, Dryad, Harpies, Hydra, Cerberus, Centaur, Chimera, Medusa, Nymph, King Arthur, Cyrano de Bergerac, Scarlet Pimpernel, Beowulf/Grendel, Paladin/ Princess, Peter Pan, Treasure Island, Blackbeard, Vampires, Werewolves, Jack and the Bean stock, Tom Thumb, Thumblina, Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty, Red Riding Hood, Snow White, Viking, Pirate, Zombie, Ghoul, Lich, Mummy, Wraith, Grim Reaper, satyr, unicorn, Pegasus...
You get the idea. Email me if you think of something you really like and don't want someone else to show up as that.

WebMuck users may notice a nice improvement in responsiveness. Here's a simple change log:
- Uses perl ithreads instead of fork() in most cases
- Requests are concurrent rather than queued
- Holds a connection ready to send text for up to 3 minutes
- Inactive connections closed by the server are left alive until their buffer is sent to a client (or 3 hours)
- Starts new requests with no delay
- Sends text with concurrent requests independent of receiving text
- Uses the much more efficient appendChild() function to add text to the output window

Acceptable Losses in a web-playable format. Not compatible with Microsoft browsers, and not final, but very playable.

It is now possible once again to add entries to the WhatsNew page. It's (perhaps obviously) been recreated as a wiki page, so anyone with wiki edit access may add entries. Please try to stick to the existing format.
