World's Fastest Net Link 'Used To Dry Laundry'

datazone Re:Binary math and disk speeds: (135 comments)

you are making the assumption that someone only has a single computer connected to this link.

The averge geek home has between 1 to 3 computers devices, add in the support for ondemand TV over that internet link, and well, you can start to eat up a good amount of bandwidth.

Now imagine someone with a big or extended family.

I am not saying that any family would be able to saturate a 40Gbps link, but this link would probably not be the norm for any family for a while.

okay, is it me, or is the idea of using a medium to voice an opinion against the medium just stupid. if you dont like /. then stop coming here. most of the people i see bitching about /. are either people who have no life, or are the extriemist who always look for a reason why someone may have slighted them. its the same shit i saw on irc back in the days. someone would think they were being "oppressed" in a channel, so they would either troll the channel making an ass of themselves or try to take over the channel. either way its just sad. its a shame how childish some people are. they never grow up. i guess the problem is that they have never gotten a good beating for acting stupid. but thats just me.

The bot is pretty far along now. The logging and configuration file system seems to be working. A few more days of testing, and i should be able to put it in production as is. I still have some features to add to it, but i can add those slowly. Actualy, i would like to get the authentication system in place before i put it in production....... but i will see how that works out.

Saw that article on gdkxft, tried it out, and realised how nasty my fonts were. uninstalled it, installed some ttf from my windows partition, and made it look good again.

yesterday i decided to convert my tcl script that i used in the eggdrop bot into a full python irc bot. finished it today. works like a champ! will have to add some features to it later on, but for now its good.

Will probably work on the php webpage tonight or in the morning. had hopes to go to work tommorow to take care of two problems.. but i really dont feel like it. heck i dont feel like doing it at all! but life isnt that simple.

Got all the gold i needed to repair my head gear in d2x.
repaired it, and i am now at level 56, so is my hireling.
he pakcs a goos punch with that freeze blast. he does more damage than me!

well its another weekend, this one longer than most, and i have no plans in the world. boy do i lead a sad life. The only good thing is i have plans to make things change, but its long term plans, and they are very slowly falling in place... i dont know if i can hold out that long, the walls are closing in, and i am trapped down at the bottom of the well.

i wish the domain that expired this month was available for me to register. but sadly, it seems you got to wait months after it expire to register it. anywho, life has been as shitty as normal, however i have plans to start a new project that may be really cool. But you know my track record with projects... i pretty much dont start them, or abandon them for somthing more fun.

Anywho, still working on that iss site. got to go to work early today, so that i can leave early. at least that is the plan.

Damn, snafu, my one place to find good comedy seems to have stopped streaming. I guess it was coming, they were getting pretty messed up coming to the end when you would hear the same crap over and over. It wouldnt be so bad if i hadn't lost a full cd of comedy mp3s... But i like falling asleep with music/comedy playing in the background.
Last night i tuned into this 80's stream... well, i think i almost got up and went crazy for some of the crap they were playing.

Anywho, almost time to put the fabric softner in my laundry.
Did some more python work, to test the ips on a hosting box to see if they are still being used by customers... and what their contact info is. it would be nice if the "whois" output was in a standard format, but i guess that will be asking for too much.

Can you believe that browsers dont have an option to turn off referers! Well, the good thing i found out was when i opened a link as a new tab/window, it doesnt pass a refer, doesnt solve my problem, but at least gets me halfway there.

Yesterday i redicovered gentoo. man, now that is one configurable son-of-a-bitch program! i had forgotten how powerful it is. So many options, i feel like a kid in a candy store. Next to my filemanager which i havent built as yet, this is probably the greatest gtk filemanager ever made!

Think i may go see jay and silent bob today.

Dont you like it when you offer a free service to someone and they bitch and moan about it! I cant believe that people act the way they do. Well, i was going to add this entry earlier but i assume slashdot was having tech issues... no biggie, i understand how it is, hope people didn't bitch to them too much about it. Its not like they pay a montly membership fee to hang out on slashdot... maybe they should do that, that should clean up the site from all the losers who troll. and i guess it will give them a real reason to bitch for the first time.

Dude! iis sucks my left nut! i swear to god, i cant believe a program could be so damn brain dead! i am so sick about it, i will not talk about it... but believe you me, if i EVER meet ANYONE who has worked on iis for microsoft, they will have alot to answer for.

Found out something interesting today in the rfc for http.
It says that a browser should provide an option to turn off the "referer" feature. this way you can browse securly whithout leaving a trail and letting sites know where you just came from. Yet i dont see this option in any browser! WTF! so i was looking at mozilla/galeon to see if i can either get someone to put it in, or do it myself.

What would be really cool would to have a "referer manager".
so you can set which sites you want to or dont want to send referes from, and even have an option to specify a referer on a link. This would piss off alot of folks who like to track who is linking to them.. but you know what? FUCK THEM!
i am sick and tired of everything...

FUCK THIS SHIT TOO... i am going to play some diablo 2 exp

Well, finaly got that damn iis migration completed...
word of advice... dont put a webserver on an ide drive, and if you do, make sure you defragment it frequently and dont use iis as the webserver. that is all.

ah man, my stomach feels like crap! i feel like i ate buttered pop-corn and ice-cream at the same time... and i do know how that feel, since i did that once.

Got to go over some cold fusion and see whats going on. i hope the person who wrote it used comments, or at least built it into workable blocks so that you can see where each esction starts and ends. anywho, i think i am going to puke.


datazone datazone writes  |  more than 13 years ago

Man, i am so fucked up right now.
my head is pounding, my eyes hurt, and i feel like shit.
Spent another long day dealing with stupis iis.
I can now officialy say that iis is the stupidest webserver that i have ever had the displeasure of using!
if i ever in my life meet any of the developers of this wretched piece of software, they better have a good excuse, or they will get kicked square in the nuts.

10,000 objects is too many to have in a directory structure.

and never migrate from iis 3.0 to 4.0 without reducing the amount of virtual directories for the ftp service... else bad things happen. or at least do it on a box faster than a son-of-a-bitch pentiumpro 200 with 128megs of ram.

with that note i shall read my mail, and go to bed and have dreams of me killing iis developers...

Didnt feel like going up to work today, so i stayed at home and lvled my druid up to 52, and now have 1 million in gold.
need to make around 1/2 million more so that i can repair this really good helm someone gave me. since its a regualr work week coming up, i may bearly make it to 1.5 million by the next weekend. but its no biggie, i am not in any hurry, even when i repair it, i may decide to leave it in my stash until i reach hell and can get a socket set in it so that i can put a perfect skull to get some mana and health regen.

didnt do any work on any of my pending python scripts... i really need to buckle down and get some of them out of the way.

so much to do, so much time wasted doing nothing... grandma was almost right when she said "procrastination is the theif of time" actually its more like "procrastination is the son-of-a-bitch who jacked all my time!"

tried organising my pr0n pic collection, didnt get too far into it, its just hard deleting pr0n. i guess i will just have to bite the bullet and remove all the content that i don't like 100%, if there is any doubt abut weither to keep it or not, then it needs to go! i guess its tough love!

Well, its been an interesting day, helped a friend with some python and mysql crap.

By a curse of faith i helped this woman get her baby in a stroller up the stairs into the train, and some woman next to me told that i had a beautiful child, and that it looked just like me... had to put her in her place by letting her know it wasnt my child, it didnt come out right, made it sound like i was with the other woman, but raising another man's child. had to make a hasty exit from the train.

One of the NT servers got hacked by some stupid script kiddies, how lame. will probably have to spend some time on sunday looking to see what got modified and and try to fix it.

Saw "The Score". I think it was a pretty good movie, but its one of those movies that is better seen on the big instead of at home on a tv screen.

life pretty much suck right now... I have good hopes for next week, i guess its going to be one of the most important weeks i have had in a long while, i shall have to make some important decisions or not make them, either way, it will be interesting to see what happens.

Anywho, its 1:30pm and i need to finish up some stuff and head to bed.
