RuneFest 2013 Ticket Announcement

13 September 2013 - 09:48 PM

Yes! Runefest - the epic real life celebration of all things RuneScape - is once again coming to the shores of London and we want you to be part of it! From 10am to 11pm on the 2nd of November 2013, RuneFest 3 will be taking over the Tobacco Dock in London for what promises to be our most adventurous community extravaganza yet!

You’ll meet the makers of RuneScape 3 and Old School RuneScape, immerse yourself in the world of Gielinor, meet like-minded people and catch up with friends, new and old.

And after a day packed with the best RuneFest content yet, you are then invited to join the RuneScape Team as we let our hair down for the RuneFest After Party.

Your RuneFest 3 ticket will give full access to all areas - including the After Party - and will cost you £99.

Here's what your £99 will get you:

As you walk through the doors of RuneFest, we’ll be waiting for you armed with the best goody bags we’ve ever produced. Goody bags will be packed with great RuneFest 3-exclusive memorabilia, including collector’s pins, limited-edition t-shirts and a very special RuneFest 3 in-game item.

This year’s Insider Sessions will show you RuneScape like never before, and with our Meet the Maker sessions, you’ll be able to quiz JMods one-on-one about your favourite content. If they tell you a secret, though, try and keep it to yourself!

RuneFest wouldn't be RuneFest without a bevy of Gielinorian activities and this year’s no different. From Varrockian food to penguin hunts; treasure trails to sampling the unreleased content; we’ve got it covered.

As the sun goes down and last balloon has been dropped and popped, the After Party kicks off. Get stuck into the free bar during Happy Hour and then join the team for an evening of food and entertainment, featuring live music; the late, late gaming session; the new and improved Golden Gnome Awards; and much, much more.

We hope you’re as excited as we are for this year’s event! But hey, don’t take our word for it, here’s Mod Mark:

 

 

To get your hands on a ticket and keep up to date on the latest RuneFest 3 news and information, head on over to the brand-new RuneFest 3 microsite.
 
RuneFest 3 is just weeks away and we can’t wait to see you there. If you have any questions be sure to check out the FAQ, and to discuss the event, head on over to the forums.

 

 
Who's that handsome chap at 1:04 in the pale blue tshirt? :P

Jagex database theft from Ace of Spades (jmod twitter hijacked)

to me
Dear <player>,

At Jagex, the security of your information is especially important to us, so we’re really sorry to share with you that it’s possible that some of your Ace of Spades Forum account information may have been compromised during the last few days.

We know that some usernames, e-mail addresses, salted password hashes, and some other very limited forum profile information could have been accessed, all other more important data wasn’t at risk. All credit card, addresses, and other personal information held by Jagex is maintained in a separate high security system on a different network and have not been accessed and are not at risk.

As passwords are protected by means of being salted and hashed, the passwords are unreadable, however players with easily guessable passwords may be vulnerable. The breach appears to have occurred due to a new exploit in popular vBulletin forum software, which has been affecting many other vBulletin customers. We acted within hours of vBulletin announcing the exploit to its customers, taking all necessary actions to secure the forums; however unfortunately the exploit appears to have been used on the Ace of Spades forums within this short timeframe.

We recommend you change your Ace of Spades Forum password as soon as possible, and your password on any website where you may have used the same login information as a precaution. We are currently working to restore service to the forums, and ensure they are secure. Within 24 hours of the forums being restored we will require players logging into the forums to change their passwords. We recommend all users select a password consisting of letters, numbers, and special characters of at least 8 characters in length.

We apologise about this situation and any inconvenience it may cause you. We will continue to prioritise account security in the future.

If you have any questions or concerns relating to this, please contact us at aceofspades@jagex.com.

Sincerely,
Jagex Security Team.


FAQ

How did this happen?
The breach appears to have occurred due to a new exploit in the popular vBulletin forum software that is used on the website, which has been affecting many other vBulletin customers.

How could I be affected?
As usernames, e-mails, and hashed and salted passwords could have been accessed briefly, it’s possible a hacker could use these details to attempt to login to other accounts where you have used the same login details. You are particularly at risk if you use a simple password.

Has any of my billing information been stolen, should I notify my bank?
Jagex holds no billing details of customers who purchased Ace of Spades via Steam, Amazon, or other online stores. All credit card, addresses, and other personal information held by Jagex for other products is maintained in a separate high security system on a different network and have not been accessed and are not at risk.

How do I know if my password has been compromised?
As passwords are protected by means of being salted and hashed, the passwords are unreadable, however players with easily guessable passwords may be vulnerable. As a precaution we recommend everyone changes their password as soon as possible on all sites where you used the same login information.

Should I change my password on the Ace of Spades Forum & other websites as well?
As a precaution we recommend everyone changes their password as soon as possible on all sites where you used the same login information.

What is a strong password?
A strong password is considered to be at least 8 characters in length, and contains a combination of at least three upper and/or lower case letters, punctuation, symbols, and numerals. The more variety you use, the better. Passwords such as “bubbles52” are not considered secure. Websites such as howsecureismypassword.net are a good guide to how secure your password is.

What are you doing about this?
The breach appears to have occurred due to a new exploit in popular vBulletin forum software, which has been affecting many other vBulletin customers. We acted within hours of vBulletin announcing the exploit to its customers, taking all necessary actions to secure the forums; however unfortunately the exploit appears to have been used on the Ace of Spades forums within this short timeframe. We have taken additional steps to prevent this kind of attack occurring in the future. All players will be sent a communication to their registered e-mail address.

I have additional questions, how can I contact you?

Quick question...

How do I make a cron job to repeat every 4 weeks as opposed to the same day each week/month.

Thanks.

CSS Border shadow

18 March 2013 - 10:41 AM

I'm getting close to launch on the new FromeFM website that I've been developing. I was staring at the box design (as in the brief) and kept thinking how flat it looked. So I've added some shadow to the boxes using CSS

Posted Image

I've used the following code to make it work in modern browsers
.box {
-webkit-box-shadow: 0 10px 6px -6px #666;
    -moz-box-shadow: 0 10px 6px -6px #666;
		 box-shadow: 0 10px 6px -6px #666;
}

However this doesn't work in old versions of Internet Explorer. I'm not fussed by IE6 or anything silly like that but it would be nice to get ti working at least in IE8

How to find Windows key?

18 March 2013 - 09:33 AM

My laptop is on the way out but I'd like to try to save the Windows7 licence to use on another machine. It's legitimately paid for and I have a hologram and sticker on the bottom of the laptop.

However... It's faded from use and many of the numbers are obscured or too fuzzy to make out.

Is there a way of finding out the product/licence key from within the OS?
