QuoteSilverLight is used by Amazon Video, though it falls-back to Flash if it isn't present. And Flash has some advantages. It's not surprising to me to see Silverlight canned. There are a gazillion examples of abandoned corporate projects. It seems the larger a software company gets, the more difficulty it has operating. I have a theory that this may be because they start to treat their programmers like blue collar workers, and try to dictate direction from the top's crystal ball, rather than listen to the market and the developers 'in the trenches'.I'm excited about amping up dev work at Bitsum again. A lot is coming.

QuoteI dunno what an IPv6 address will look like in SMF, if it's even supported, to be honest.The web server *does* expose itself via IPv6. You can force such by visiting http://ipv6.bitsum.com . I guess to visit the Forum with IPv6 you would need to disable your IPv4 stack, *if* you have full IPv6 connectivity.
QuoteThe ipv6.bitsum.com address doesn't work on the main site because of redirects. For someone who *only* had IPv6 available, it should work. Otherwise, it will fall-back to IPv4 due to the redirect to bitsum.com, since it supports both IPv4 and IPv6.
QuoteDoesn't surprise me that SMF doesn't properly support IPv6 yet. Very little software does. It's a pain for them to hack in. It's scary to think of all the firewalls and IP rules that have improper IPv6 support.
QuoteProbably we will have to keep manually battling spammers. I don't think anyone has ever solved this problem. The spammers will find a way
