  1. Het was een geweldig jaar! Bedankt dat jij er onderdeel van bent geweest.

  2. Trotse mama voor het eerst met Medea naar buiten :)

  3. Je weet dat je met hopeloze kutsoftware zit te werken als de installer "This software requires Vista Service Pack 2" roept.... onder Windows 7 SP1.

  4. If it's routing issues that makes sense - disable all superfluous traffic, or use reroutes that don't support it. Routing at the datacenter level can screw up a lot of stuff at the ICMP level (ping/trace). They're just warning that it can actually fail, so that you know it's not unexpected or a sign of a bigger failure.
  5. Thankfully they are. Tachy isn't a tool that any sane mod will ever use in a civilized discussion, because yes then you have users that will notice and complain, and the user himself will notice. I remember however using it once on a guy who was just trolling to be trolling, which is the kind of user that just aims for the flamewar and doesn't EXPECT meaningful replies, he EXPECTS to be ignored, just hopes he won't be. I'd banned the guy 5 times or so, he came back with clones from open proxies, so I put him in Coventry. After 2 weeks (!) he left forever, either because he thought the community had agreed to ignore him and thus his trolling was useless, or he found out and was pissed about wasting 2 weeks of his life. Either way, I did the community a great favor with a great feature Tachy is a dangerous and rightfully controversial tool but certainly has its uses.
  6. I think here it boils down to 'I agree not to flame and troll.'
  7. There's 2 actually: the red one with an 'x' in there in the top right of the window, and the left arrow in the top left
  8. Freedom of speech is actually not a government thingy but a fundamental core right of the citizens of most Western countries. The thing is that freedom comes in many forms which aren't necessarily incompatible, while you enjoy free speech any individual or corporation enjoys the right to use their property as they deem fit. Hence, it makes complete sense that Turbine is allowed to shun you from their company servers and facilities for exerting your free speech
  9. And for the record - that's not a linear number. Having 10 times as many visitors probably increases the system load rather by a factor 2 than 10.
  10. That's not what your mother said last night.
  11. The smileys are sacred
  12. You really are begging to discover the meaning of iptables and what people can do with them huh
  13. Boromir still has a lot of important work to do before he can be ceremonially buried
  14. Don't you mean Soon™?
  15. Example of how it looks on the serverside: 66.220.156.250 - - [08/May/2011:02:21:54 +0200] "GET /forum/topic/32-show-us-your-favourite-cosmetic-outfit/ HTTP/1.1" 200 17677 "-" "facebookexternalhit/1.1 (+http://www.facebook.com/externalhit_uatext.php)" That's the IP they connect from, the time they connected, the 'resource' they were asking for, the response code (200 means 'OK'), the size of the response (17677 bytes), the referrer ('-' means empty) and last but not least their identification string, indicating there's more info to be found at http://www.facebook.com/externalhit_uatext.php
