Good idea but only you do it if you want to

Those who forget their history are bound to repeat it. :stuck_out_tongue:

But if they forget it does it count as being known?

History happened, regardless of whether it is known or understood.

Unless it’s “Schrodinger’s History”. :rofl:

The ratings are currently being repaired, it’s a stupid long process of the servers processing all the game records since the beginning of time though. I did some rating performance analysis and included some minor improvements while I was in the system. As the process gets closer to completion and I’ve validated that everything looks in order, I’ll let y’all know and do a little write up about the improvements and whatnot.

I don’t think that means what you think it means.

Well, while we’re waiting: I think it means what he thinks it means.

What do you think it means?

That he’s taking every recorded game available in the (thousands of years) history of Go and using them for ranking; It’s a joke on the phrase “the beginning of time” when he meant “the start of OGS”, don’t take the comment too seriously.

No seriousness here, just chat :slight_smile:

When someone works on a server like this, there is no time before the beginning of the server :wink:

At the present time, the Onlinium Goservorum has become a complex and highly unstable piece of machinery, albeit one whose very presence is essential to the survival of gomanity against the horrors of outer servers - or worse, some (highly heretical) accounts of the fringe of the golaxy mentioning the existence of unimaginable xeno-games involving different pieces or more than two players.

The server can only be powered by the psychic force of 10,000 specially-purposed 30kyu, whose spirits are routinely crushed under the necessary 100 defeats and whose ranks must be regularly replenished with fresh recruits coming from all go-controlled planets of the golaxy. Only a chosen few will rise through the ranks to become a sanctioned Regular. This is the price to pay, for the OGS beacon must never fade…

You mean “The Cor-Corr Incident”. (yes, still trying to make this happen).

Exactly the quote I had in mind, although I’ve never seen the movie. That’s pop culture for you. :grin::grin:
