The other day I noticed that my WordPress site (ShoutMeloud) started responding slow and at times it was giving error connecting database issue. At many instance it was giving me following error “Connection lost. Saving has been disabled until you’re reconnected. We’re backing up this post in your browser, just in case.” while writing a blog post. It was unusual, as my traffic was consistent and there was n change in server configuration. For the first few time I simply ignored this issue and today I ran into another issue with comment moderation. Even after accepting or trashing the comments, it was re-appearing. With that I was sure something is wrong with the database and I thought of repairing my database. Instead of using WP DB-manager plugin or WP-optimize plugin, I straight away used PHPMyAdmin to repair and optimise my database. For the first time I encountered something very unusual as I noticed few of my WordPress database tables couldn’t be … [Read more...] about [Fix] WordPress Database table doesn’t support repair Error

When you work in video games, you often get asked what new titles you are looking forward to. While experience has been teaching me to temper my enthusiasm, I do have one that I’m excited to play. I first got to experience Dual Universe in-person at PAX West last September, and since then I’ve been eagerly anticipating its release! Why? That title pretty summed it up well: It’s a persistent, seamless, sandbox universe. More than that even, it is a hotbed of creativity thanks to its voxel foundation. So I’ve had a taste of what can happen in a world that customizable, and I hunger for more! That meeting with Jean-Christophe Baillie, the president and founder of NovaQuark, was seven months ago. How has development been coming along since then? How does the game look today? I got to sit down with Baillie for an update on progress and a new tour through the universe a few weeks ago. In my first demo, I saw promise. This time, I saw more of that promise … [Read more...] about Massively OP Interview: Dual Universe demo shows off advances in city building, space travel
Play EVE Online for freeIt’s become almost a running joke in the comments of articles that EVE Online is a great game to read about but not nearly as fun to actually play. While those of us who have been playing for years can attest to EVE‘s depth and long-term gripping power, it has always been a difficult game for new players to get into. EVE sees an unmistakable spike in new players every time a story about a massive battle or political event hits the gaming media, but most don’t stay in the long term and activity levels always return to normal within a few months. CCP has tried to revamp the new player experience more times than probably any other part of the game to combat this, but EVE‘s infamous impenetrability remains stubbornly intact. At EVE Fanfest 2016, we learned that a whopping 1.5 million people signed up to EVE last year, but that 51% of them quit within the first two hours. They’re … [Read more...] about EVE Evolved: Fixing EVE’s New Player Experience (again)
Translations: LIFE AND ENDURANCE: Characters have a life bar and an endurance bar. When you take damage, it will generally subtract from your endurance bar. When endurance hits 0, you're knocked out, not dead. Once you're life has reached 0, you're dead and you will have to respawn at the nearest spawn point. In PvE, creatures are generally not evil so they will leave you alone once you're knocked out. If you don't get killed after being knocked out, you will eventually recover with some of your life gone. Of course players can continue to attack you and kill you after you've been knocked out, as long as they are willing to suffer the consequences. (Only matters on Syndesia of course. Tartaros is lawless). There are conditions that can cause you to lose your life, like sickness. There are spells that allow you to consume your own life and endurance. Assuming you don't get killed, you will eventually recover after being knocked out. The exact time hasn't been decided yet. Your allies … [Read more...] about Summary of the Survival & Travel Q&A livestream.
