    I've had a heck of a time getting on this site recently and after checking with the suppercomputer I have found the cause of the problem. Apparently Barney has colluded with one of his European friends and after he got special favors he gave his new best friend special access to my suppercomputer so they can affect crap forum sites for kicks.

    Here's what the suppercomputer had on its hard drives...

    I would guess Barney had some of that on his hard drive. Way to go Barney!

    Check the time settings on your suppercomputer. If it's set for a time that has already passed it causes a feedback loop and drains all the bandwidth out of the internet.

    Now I know why Donald hates Nato. He can’t get on this site either.

    Not sure about anyone else..but the server errors are beyond frustrating.

    My fear is the site won't falter because of lack of interest...but because of this menace known as Resource Limit and configure errors.

    I had the same thought. That I might have to find a life outside this forum is a scary thought. Hence I am willing to put up with quite a lot. This evening it seems like I'm hitting the wall on every other request. Persistence is rewarded but it is definitely becoming a chore, and my patience is not without bounds.

    I am sure it is the Group of insiders hacking the forum in a attempt to shut down James Hall from being able to give out the sure fire winning of craps secrets. I believe LTWOQ alone probably put 2 or 3 casinos in bankrupcy.

    Or maybe the industry itself? :eek: We Insiders need to save the casinos by getting our nuts clipped and our dicks dragged in the dirt, losing our asses, making a direct donation at the players' club, and/or any other means IMMEDIATELY lest the gaming cartel fold up their tents and deprive us of our lucrative investment opportunities we've been living off of.

    Midnight, since you have an IT background perhaps you can offer an insight into this resource problem?

    Just speculating, the resource limit issue seems to correspond with the lack of spam. Perhaps whatever methods Jacob has employed to battle the spammers, has also limited our access to the site? I also noticed Jacob has been missing for about a week. Maybe he’ll fix the problem when he returns, but it certainly is getting as bad as trying to find a $5 table in New Mexico.

    That the error message appears to be coming from the forum and not the cloud suggests the forum is running on a server connected directly to the internet as opposed to a third party ISP. Hence whatever is causing the problem is occurring "locally". Unfortunately that isn't much help to anyone (like me) who does not have access to the server because Craps Forum may be sharing that server with other applications, one or more of which may be sucking up the resources. I have encountered service denials when the total number of users online has been in the sixties -- and speak of the devil I just hit the wall with 71 users online -- which supports that possibility.

    Even if the problem is within this forum solving it can be a challenge. Whatever mechanism is being used to block spam, even if it is as simple as disallowing new sign ups, which Jacob did during his last absence, blocking sign up requests takes resources. Catch 22.

    IMHO I think any solution has to be implemented at the IP level to be "permanent". Ideally this would use a front end "traffic cop" computer to analyze incoming requests and reject those from an IP address that failed whatever test was used as a filter. That test would have to be done in real time, maybe something like less than two seconds between requests over a period of a minute, something to identify a non-human user. I doubt a separate computer is economically feasible, but the idea still seems viable for implementation on the existing server. I am quite sure the forum software contains no configuration setting like this, so it would, unfortunately, have to be developed or licensed separately. It would also degrade performance, though clearly not as much as the "limited resources" errors are degrading it now.

    Yeah, wtf is going on here?

    I guess Jacob has more important things to do (and rightfully so).

    A computer expert I am not, and this message keeps me off the board damn near every time I try to get on.

    Let me try to kick out a new subject: Place bets suck because:

    They are paid less than fairly, they never benefit when the result is seven, they lose all at the same time but win only one at a time.

    As this response is attempted to be posted, that fricking message has come up time after time.

    Perhaps I should have stated that come bets suck.

    I had Barney upgrade the suppercomputer yesterday to Windows 3.0 and it seemed to help a little.

    I take it, then, he also upgraded your processor from a 286 to a 386?


    Incidentally I noticed Jacob was listed in the Who Has Visited list yesterday, and now today there are only five robots online. I also have yet to get the -- um -- message we don't mention lest it be summoned today, so perhaps the forum management software has also been upgraded.

    Today wasn't too bad to get logged on. No "resource limit" errors but the only log in that works on my computer using firefox is the black lettered one at the bottom of threads. The buttons just feed right back to the login screen. I have popups blocked so that may be part of the issue..


    Earlier this week I saw several errors that said "You must wait bla bla seconds before performing this action" Since I never took typing that was a welcome error to see in an odd way.

    I doubt the Mesa Troll has taken any typing or keyboarding class and odds are good that he’s a hunt and pecker. Yet, he’s very prolific. Imagine if he took his own advice about training and sought out a keyboarding expert to teach him? He might easily have 30,000 posts already.

    I did take typing in HS on manual typewriters. I thought it would be easy and there would be lots of chicks. I was right about the latter. And now, I finger this iPad. I guess I need to find a fingering class.
