Re: My resignation, and some background of events lead to.

Due to the downtime yesterday, I have decided to go ahead with my idea for a new forum. I went ahead and bought several domains, one of which was autohotkey2.com which was recommended here https://autohotkey.com/boards/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=214&start=80#p21408 which nobody took. AHK needs a rebranding...

Re: My resignation, and some background of events lead to.

I'm glad someone finally realized that a breach basically means passwords need to be changed; although it probably happened way too late. Next is post-mortem review - What happened, how, and what is being done to stop it from happening ever again. I have expressed to Tank that I would be willing to ...

Re: My resignation, and some background of events lead to.

All I did was request server access for backup management and general server management. After odds and ends (being told backups were taken care of and everything else was under control, which it wasn't as evidence by my security report,) I redacted my offer, then was given access anyway. I responsi...

Re: My resignation, and some background of events lead to.

Like i said i am willing to post an announcement but that's all that's technically possible anyway. an email blast is not possible even if i were inclined. while these things are certainly suspect they certainly don't rise to anything more than a nuisance if true. I am all for err on side of cautio...

Re: My resignation, and some background of events lead to.

I am commenting here, because I don't have a autohotkey.com account. I think it is important to point things out, especially given the recent events. http://autohotkey.com/board/topic/150278-autohotkey-forum-emails-leaked/#entry735682 Tank said that there was a breach, and nobody was notified, staff...

Re: Spam in OffTopic

Or... the captcha setting on the board was reset, again... As I pointed out in the staff section weeks ago, a mod for spam stuff isn't required, just the proper captcha (recaptcha, or better,) not the default gd captcha with phpbb. I notified TLM and he changed it. Look at settings first, don't just...

Re: My resignation, and some background of events lead to.

It should also be noted that Tank and Joe have ELECTED to do this by themselves . They refuse to ask anyone for help, and will only 'accept' it if someone comes to them. In my case, they only offered it to me after I said I wasn't going to, but because I am a nice guy, I helped anyway. They have not...

Re: My resignation, and some background of events lead to.

I will be, but as I said before, if I simply point them out, I'm not helping them learn. And that is essentially the problem right there, you guys aren't sysops, yet have taken on the role. I do not envy them, it is a very difficult job, incredibly so without much experience. Hell, you can have all...

My resignation, and some background of events lead to.

It is with a heavy heart that I am resigning from my mod post, and the forums entirely. I have been burned twice now. There have been several reasons leading up to this, but most notably, it is the new management structure, how it operates, and the lack of proper server practices. Long story: It see...

Re: CloudFlare Error 520

My alternative solution is to not have a CDN, or DDoS protection. The reason being that ahkscript is not likely to get attacked, and (as seen here) it is one more link in the chain that can go wrong. Bandwidth is cheap. Cloudflare has a track record of leaking IPs (if you want DDoS protection, a few...

Might want to check statuses first.
While I don't recommend cloudflare (free or paid,) there is no reason to move to the paid service.

Re: « What's on your mind? »

My Samsung 850 Evo 500GB just past 200 TB ( TB: 200.783) written over the 4878 hour life of the thing. That's about 42 Gb per hour and still going strong. The IO speed is a little smaller than when I first got it, but that is to be expected. I'm only using ~370 GB of it right now anyway (LVM'ed it, ...

People won't write script for you. You won't learn if you don't try.

Re: Developers question

you could try grep ? I don't see a use for grep in this situation. Grep matches inputs with a pattern, which is not applicable in this case. Grep is not (usually) installed on Windows systems. In addition, if it can't find the test script... grep certainly won't (unless you use -r and pipe in a dir...

Re: Site access

I originally added a range IP ban on 178.1*.*.* since a lot of spammers were hitting from a lot of IPs in that range. I have since removed it (as you can post) however I don't believe that it should have affected the ability to do update checks, or block the binaries. The bans were set in phpbb (thi...

Kidbit, please refrain from editing your posts to "remove" all traces of the post, as it adds confusion for all other members and staff.

Re: The First Step

Okay. From what I understand, we would need to file as a company and have directors or a board (kinda a given in what we wanted.) We would have to choose a state or country (if we want it to be based non-US) to file in. From there we would want to file this (if US based) http://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-p...
