Forum Software Updated

Postby ujforums » Tue Jun 14, 2011 7:58 pm

On June 12, 2011, the server graciously updated the version of php running on the server. As as result, the connection to the database as used by the Unicorn Jelly Forums was broken. Took me forever to find the problem. In the end, I had to remove a single character from the end of a string.

While I was at it, I updated the forum software to the latest and greatest. Not sure yet what that means but I thought I saw something about RSS feeds.

Thanks for the heads-up!

For those who are wondering what is this text in the middle of the Tanzwut Clip... (and it's not a real part of Symph No.9)
It's from "Faust" by Johann Wolfgang Goethe.
The words of Mephisto.
http://www.gutenberg.org/files/14591/14 ... 4591-h.htm

Here is an excerpt so you can better find it, - if you have an interest for this
MEPHISTOPHELES

(while the vapor is dissipating, steps forth from behind the
stove, in the costume of a Travelling Scholar.)
Why such a noise? What are my lord's commands?

FAUST

This was the poodle's real core,
A travelling scholar, then? The casus is diverting.

MEPHISTOPHELES

The learned gentleman I bow before:
You've made me roundly sweat, that's certain!

FAUST

What is thy name?

MEPHISTOPHELES

A question small, it seems,
For one whose mind the Word so much despises;
Who, scorning all external gleams,
The depths of being only prizes.

FAUST

With all you gentlemen, the name's a test,
Whereby the nature usually is expressed.
Clearly the latter it implies
In names like Beelzebub, Destroyer, Father of Lies.
Who art thou, then?

MEPHISTOPHELES

Part of that Power, not understood,
Which always wills the Bad, and always works the Good.

FAUST

What hidden sense in this enigma lies?

MEPHISTOPHELES

I am the Spirit that Denies!
And justly so: for all things, from the Void
Called forth, deserve to be destroyed:
'Twere better, then, were naught created.
Thus, all which you as Sin have rated,—
Destruction,—aught with Evil blent,—
That is my proper element.

(That here is one of the part of quotation in the song, and is most famous in Germany)

FAUST

Thou nam'st thyself a part, yet show'st complete to me?

MEPHISTOPHELES

The modest truth I speak to thee.
If Man, that microcosmic fool, can see
Himself a whole so frequently,
Part of the Part am I, once All, in primal Night,—
Part of the Darkness which brought forth the Light,
The haughty Light, which now disputes the space,
And claims of Mother Night her ancient place.
And yet, the struggle fails; since Light, howe'er it weaves,
Still, fettered, unto bodies cleaves:
It flows from bodies, bodies beautifies;
By bodies is its course impeded;
And so, but little time is needed,
I hope, ere, as the bodies die, it dies!

FAUST

I see the plan thou art pursuing:
Thou canst not compass general ruin,
And hast on smaller scale begun.

MEPHISTOPHELES

And truly 'tis not much, when all is done.
That which to Naught is in resistance set,—
The Something of this clumsy world,—has yet,
With all that I have undertaken,
Not been by me disturbed or shaken:
From earthquake, tempest, wave, volcano's brand,
Back into quiet settle sea and land!
And that damned stuff, the bestial, human brood,—
What use, in having that to play with?
How many have I made away with!
And ever circulates a newer, fresher blood.
It makes me furious, such things beholding:
From Water, Earth, and Air unfolding,
A thousand germs break forth and grow,
In dry, and wet, and warm, and chilly;
And had I not the Flame reserved, why, really,
There's nothing special of my own to show!

In a way I'm glad the forums went down.

Why?

'Cause we got our Jenny back! :D

Sorry, the forum is temporarily unavailable. Please try again in a few minutes.

I miss this notice here.
Maybe I'm always here just when it's not shown, - allright, I'm patient, we'll see.
