TUS server upgraded
« on: June 22, 2017, 02:35 PM »
Hello,

Sorry for the long downtime of TUS. It's server has been upgraded.
As StepS requested, we're now on https. (secure protocol, so your ISP can't see you're pulling each others' hair)

There will be bugs, please use the bug board to report them.

Cheers
Due to massive misunderstandings: MonkeyIsland refers to an island not a monkey. I would be a monkey, if my name was IslandMonkey meaning a monkey who is or lives on an island. MonkeyIsland is an island which is related to monkeys. There's been a legend around saying MonkeyIsland is a game. So please, think of me as an island or a game.

Great news! Keep it up! :)
Dec 30 2013 23:59:44 <StepS> windowed mode isn't the only thing you need about frontend
Dec 30 2013 23:59:49 <StepS> you need it to be actually bigger
Dec 31 2013 00:00:13 <StepS> it actually is very small on my 15-inch full HD screen
Dec 31 2013 00:00:25 <StepS> while running at 640x480 or stretched mode makes it fuzzy
Dec 31 2013 00:00:44 <StepS> this problem has been around since the Worms Armageddon's release and no one has even tried to beat it

Unrelated note: Free League is back.
Imagine What a Buck Could Do!


Ultra league owner. Still plays here, however. BTW, any bad posts are just me going insane. Sorry about those.

By the way, just to let you know, I might not be a male for much longer. I'll keep my gender for now, but if it needs to happen, I'll have a vote for my transgender future.

I find that TUS takes much longer to load now than it used to, is that something that will improve or are we stuck with it?

Generally websites perform slower under SSL protocol because there is encryption/decryption of data. But the time shouldn't be that high to bother anyone. How slow is it on your end?

Takes around 5 secs before the frontpage opens.

Anything from 5-10 seconds.

I know it's not the end of the world, I just find it a little like "CMON HURRY UP!" when literally every other website I visit loads instantly(really, almost the second I fetch the url).

If we have a safer more secure TUS then whatever, once it's loaded it's fine, it's just that initial load, like I said, not a big deal really :)

This will generally depend on the server-side implementation and performance, not so much client-side.
However, in case you didn't know, encrypted HTTP/2 is faster than unencrypted HTTP/1.1: https://www.troyhunt.com/i-wanna-go-fast-https-massive-speed-advantage/
Encrypted HTTP/2 is supported in every modern browser, and is used on certain big websites, especially those with high load. Of course, implementing this would mean much more than just turning the https switch on. Also, it may break current API implementations.

Edit: confirmed, the main page takes a while to load, but other pages load fine.

My browser (Firefox) gives me a warning sign ⚠ about insecure images. Also, when I go to home page of TUS, it takes like 6-8 seconds to load.



Adnan, you are Mega, not Micro and not even faint  :D So fight till the end please.

Yes, I can confirm that the main page takes a while to load, like said in the previous comments. Other pages work fine, only the main page is so slow.
You get an insecure images warning, because many images on the site, especially in forum posts, signatures and avatars, are externally sourced, with some of them using HTTP links. The only way to fix this problem is by setting up resource proxying. Any http element would be cached by the website, so your machine wouldn't load the insecure http images directly, but instead the site caches it for you, and you load it from the site cache. If the website can provide sufficient cache storage, this could be looked into but isn't mandatory. The biggest part of https is being able to authenticate and communicate (PMs, etc.) securely.
If you have the HTTPS Everywhere extension installed in your browser, there's a hardened mode ("Block all HTTP requests"). This would block any http elements on the website. Also, where possible, https connections may be used for images declared as http. So only a small percent of images would actually be broken.
