I want a show that is only Amos and Jayne from Firefly.

That would be freaking awesome!

A series that revolves around figuring out which of them is the moral compass for the two  :excited:

IceGhost is hedging his bets with this "Best show since <insert show not as good as The Expanse>"

Best Sci-fi series ever on TV.  :rockband:

So in the end, I ended up manually creating the account.  Had the user log in using a username/password.  Then after they logged in with that, their smart card credentials started being cached on the site and they didn't have to log in with the username/password to get to the admin console.  I'm still not really clear why that worked, but at least it's taken care of for now.  :shrug:

Unfortunately, it is a DoD site.  So even if I gave you the URL you would get a big, fat rejection page from the server.  But I can try my best to describe the situation.

So when a new user authenticates to the site using their smart card, the site is set up to pull the user's credentials from Active Directory and compare them to the certificates on the smart card for authentication.  If it is their first time visiting the site, the user's credentials are used to automatically create a new user account in WordPress.

However, I had a particular user log onto the site for the first time because I needed to upgrade their role on the site as a new admin.  I went to look for their account on the User panel in the WordPress management console, and for the life of me, I cannot find their WordPress user account.  Yet, this person is able to authenticate to the site and browse the site just fine as a regular user.  So I am a bit stumped.

Okay, maybe I'm rusty but if you are using Active Directory I wouldn't be setting up individual accounts. I would set up a user for an AD group, assign the rights to it, and assign the individual users to the AD group. Make one for regular users and admins. That way you aren't chasing down individual users for granting or removing permissions individually in other systems. You get a new employee you assign them to all of the AD groups of the person that they are replacing.

So in that case you wouldn't find them. To upgrade their role place them into the admin AD group.

Have you been able to track down a new user in the Wordpress tables before?

Civilization Series / Re: Civ VI Expansion

I'm afraid that I've felt that way about Civ 6 in general. I've tried to finish games in it but found it just wasn't as fun as previous versions for me.

Are they connecting the test site url instead of the live one?

Interesting. I hadn't heard of it and even if I had I would have ignored it due to the shaming of all things named Conan. (I see you O'Brian!)

But if you guys are into it I may check this one out  :sn_troops:

Congrats Georgie! I knew you had dealt with some issues but didn't know you had been diagnosed with Schizophrenia. Let me know when the book-on-tape comes out, and I'll be sure to pick up a copy. :)  :cylon:

Text-to-speech is enabled. You should pick it up while free. I was planning to record an audio book version for release (and still will) but I used the Read Aloud feature in my Microsoft 365 Word with Kindle plugin and was amazed. The voice isn't too robotic and very good at emotional inflection. It must use the Microsoft Cloud AI for it because, again, it was an amazing read. If you send me your active email I can send you a version in Word so that you can use the Read Aloud feature too.

I'd rather wait until you record the audio book so I can hear it in your voice. I'll pay whatever it costs at that time :)

I love you man.

I only eat things with a higher IQ than myself.

Luckily, that includes most vegetables and quite a few fruits.

I figured that if everything has feelings/intelligence, then it doesn't matter what I eat, so cannabalism is in! It's just that I try to be somewhat healthy in my eating habits, and humans are really unhealthy eating
Not if you just eat the fingernails.
