Topic: Here are some new forums.

So, in the course of shoring up the server, our good friend jiriki did some linux magic that had the side-effect of rendering the old hacked-to-pieces vBulletin forums we were running basically unusable.

Rather than have him roll back the changes, which are keeping hoardes of nasty chinks at bay even as we speak, I have decided to start afresh and migrate over to PunBB, which is a lot more reliable and was coded by people who aren't dumb and which isn't illegally obtained like the old forums were.

Migrating all of the old data over from vBulletin is basically impossible so I'm not going to bother trying, so that means you'll have to re-register your usernames and post all of your dumb shit again.

For now there won't be any category-specific forums, just post whatever you like wherever you like, and we'll see how long it takes for you all to make a mess of things.

Don't take this opportunity (LOOKING AT YOU NOW ROBBIE) to register someone else's user name and start shit-posting, because it will just irritate me.

    Re: Here are some new forums.

    Here is how it goes.

    Neo tolerates us fucktards because the server is around.

    The server is around because he runs tindeck.com

    Some clown in China decided to be clever and link to a song on tindeck on his blog.

    This fucker, is apparently really really popular.

    Now, we can not read the chinko, and don't want to. So I have no idea why this guy is the bees knees. Suffice to say, the idiot can't even create a link proper, and was pointing all these other commies to an invalid URL.

    God bless that, or Neo would have shut down house due to the astronomical bandwidth bill that China would have never agreed to pay for him.

    So to start out with, I did some classfull IP blocking. Neo did not approve of this, because along with being a goddamn penal colony, those damn Australians share IPs over at APNIC with the Chinas.

    While pondering a good way to sort out just China from a bazillion APNIC IP blocks, I started doing some other clever. Tweaking MySQL to work a lot better with the amazing lack of RAM this server has was the biggest one. In the process I upgraded to MySQL 5.

    The old forums were so goddamn old, some of the queries no longer worked right.

    With about five seconds of thought we decided that shitcanning the whole thing and starting fresh would be the awesome.

    Suck it.

    Aw, I have my own conspirators! And to think I cry myself to sleep most nights when I have this other, glamorous life on the internet.

    Are all these shenanigans also the reason why I get an invalid security certificate when I try to log in to CPanel or has it always been that way and I'm just paranoid because I am borrowing wifi from neighbors and hotspots exclusively for internet access now?

    Not invalid, just self-signed. Fuck paying for a security certificate, I don't have to prove anything to you motherfuckers.

    Seriously. SSL certificates are one of the biggest goddamn scams on the internet.

    If you arent smart enough to -not- give a phishing site your information, you deserve to get robbed.

    It would be like using that cardboard and sharpie ATM next to a row of bums. When your card doesn't come back out, and your kidneys start bleeding, you deserve it.

    Agreed. I was just checking, though. I can't be the shadiest person on a hotspot all the time, after all.

    Re: Here are some new forums.

    It is that time of year, folks. I need to lose a few pounds of holiday excess. Anyone else? I like to do fasts and detoxes a couple of times during the year, the most hardcore one being the Master Cleanse I did last spring. It was not what you would characterize as pretty. Or easy. It did work, however. As I do not wish to subsist on lemon water in the middle of winter, I asked my doctor, a detox diet specialist, for the guidelines he uses to achieve a good detox that is not as hallucinogenic (in a bad way) as the Master Cleanse. He actually thinks that the Master Cleanse can be dangerous because the liver is not supported by the nutrients it needs. What it came down to was this: you can detox easily and effectively while you continue to eat as long as you are cutting out the foods and other substances that interfere with the detoxification process. Make sure you check with your doctor before you start any detox. Drink A LOT of water. I created this menu plan for a seven-day elimination diet. The shakes and juices are meant to be liquid meals that help decrease the amount of work your digestive system has to do. I will be suffering along with you to kickstart my year a bit lighter. Good luck to us all!
