Development update for the weeks of September 20th and 27th, 2020

To make this work, hosts will create a database file aside from their conventional Sia folders. Accessing and updating this Registry will be especially lucrative for them. In anticipation of this, hosts are asked to prepare their systems by freeing 16GB on the drive where Sia is installed. * A new Forum for the new Sia Foundation is live. This will be the preferred place for debating the Foundation structure, ac...
