  1. Yes, checked for that, but no, the negative response is coming directly from Google's public DNSs, it's not local.
  2. Dug in a bit, it's effectively DNS issues. At a glance it looks like Google's public DNSs are refusing to resolve the domain, because a propagation check confirms that the domain is resolving on DNS almost everywhere else. Added an entry to my hosts file pointing www.data-sphere.net to and everything works again. PMd the main admin giving him this info, now they must take it to their hosting or DNS providers or something.
  3. Necromancing this topic before it's too late. Has something happened to the site? It's been unreachable for a few days, but the domain is still quite valid.
  4. Go to the bottom of the page, there's a theme and language selector, done
  5. Dear god, yes, please set up "Remember me", i have to log back in at least 4-5 times a day at the very least
  6. Amazing! You guys should start moving to the new forum. Also i believe it'd be more productive to have a single thread for all your stuff than spread over lots of single project ones (or two, one for minis and another for terrain).
  7. Not a direct answer to this, but you can save army lists in the army builder app
  8. Engorn, the one that has been handling them on the spanish side, has been migrating the ones from there into a new thread, and what he's been doing is basically posting everybody's finished pic from previous months. Maybe that could be done for the english ones, or maybe not, the purpose for them is to keep people painting, and that purpose is being fulfilled whether the old threads survive or not...
  9. No, glitch art has been a thing for quite a while. If you enjoy it, here's a sort of gallery, the stuff posted to the /r/glitch_art subreddit that's hosted to Imgur (go to the actual subreddit if you want to see comments or sort by votes, as the Imgur pseudogallery has everything no matter if it was voted down to oblivion, here's the top voted stuff in there)
  10. That's certainly the brightest, most colorful Maggie i've seen yet
  11. You go to your profile, then click on the avatar, then upload a file from your local computer/phone as it doesn't seem to allow you to take it from an url. It has a max size limitation, so be aware of this.
  12. I'm optimistic instead, although maintaining it for both languages is going to be rough
  13. As long as the new forums have reasonable antispam controls (i seriously report several spam a day, always from new accounts) and decent features i'm glad
  14. Yes, please, make him closer to the inspiration
  15. With the Marut you save two models and avoid them from saving any of their own. Then you deploy the Posthuman with all 3 bodies and Yudbots, and Scylla with her bots. Then you get promptly socked in the mouth and the game is over
  16. Right, my bad. Some 5 minute epoxy then, that should work instead.
  17. SImple solution against the fraying that i just thought about (no idea if it would actually work): Superglue on the edges, just a layer.
  18. Also in Spain, our FLGS just got the Collector's boxes, no idea if they also got regular ones, forgot to ask. Quite impressed by the quality of the regular ones, have also seen the issue with the bent parts to fix with hot water parts but that's no more of a real problem than some flash or mold lines on minis, specially since it was very few that had it. Will paint the metal ones at the very least, won't promise anything about the plastic ones yet. Of course since i just got it and will have a few busy next couple of weeks or so ahead can't say anything about the game itself yet.
  19. Nice work! Keep evolving those tables as you play
  20. Great and interesting idea! Advice? After mentioning the very obligatory disclaimer, i'm going to go ahead and give some. Forget about "historical accuracy", "official colors" or anything on those lines. This is a nationwide tradition, there is no such a thing, specially since it's a festivity, there's bound to be variations and lack of uniformity, doubly so since much of it is meant to be colorful. What you're after is, to put it in some way, the feel of it. Your objective is not "I want to represent the specific colors people used in DOTD in México City in zone this and that on 2014" or anything like that, what you want is people looking at your army and saying "Dude! Wicked mexican Day of the Dead theme on your army!". So, do what everybody should do in these cases and just wing it! Experiment, paint some minis with variations that you feel would work, then choose the one you like the most for all the rest. Plus it's Nomads, they're not big on uniformity in the best of times, much less a squad dressing as a mexican festival, you're free to not have a regular scheme and sprinkle some variety, although just because of practical reasons you may want to intentionally limit the palette a bit and not have all colors everywhere, or maybe have a general core of central colors unifying the army (those black, white, red, yellow and orange you mention), with secondaries or tertiaries wild and free all over. I hope this makes sense I look forward to this
  21. And for starting the weekend with good cheer, there's the EA drama happening at Reddit. Somebody complained that in the $80 Star Wars Battlefront 2, you need to play 40 hours to unlock Vader. Then their community people popped in to drop this gem: Of course everybody saw through the BS as you can pay for the characters instead. This has made this comment the most downvoted (sorta like an unlike, which Facebook and others direly need) comment in the site's history, and still digging downward (currently at -207K). The sense of pride and accomplishment found now has been in canceling preorders. Yes, AAA video game development is heading in a very bad direction, thankfully we do have great indie games (plus you can still get the original BF2 game on Steam, should run in a toaster these days even).
