      Current state of vpsBoard   02/04/2017

      Dear vpsBoard members and guests:

      Over the last year or two vpsBoard activity and traffic has dwindled. I have had a change of career and interests, and as such am no longer an active member of the web hosting industry.

      Due to time constraints and new interests I no longer wish to continue to maintain vpsBoard. The web site will remain only as an archive to preserve and showcase some of the great material, guides, and industry news that has been generated by members, some of which I remain in contact to this very day and now regard as personal friends.

      I want to thank all of our members who helped make vpsBoard the fastest growing industry forum. In it's prime it was an active and ripe source of activity, news, guides and just general off-topic banter and fun.

      I wish all members and guests the very best, whether it be with your business or your personal projects.

      -MannDude

Nice photographs. I know the feeling too (self-inflicted, though). What does that spray contain exactly, just concentrated pepper extract?

I got this in Bulgaria when I still travelled outside out of Scandinavia:

cs-gas01_k0nsl.png

I tested it in the hotel room by spraying just a little in my eyes and I was incapacitated for well over five minutes. I also had to leave the room afterwards as breathing was difficult due to having sprayed the gas in there. It was very powerful, especially considering the small amount sprayed.

Best wishes,

I got sprayed once as a requirement to become an OC instructor for the department. We also had to spray a mannequin dummy as part of the course as well, and in doing that, my OC canister just shot out a mist since it was near empty and it all blew back in my face. That was the second time that day I was rendered useless and blind by it, though it wasn't as bad as the first time, it still really really sucked... haha.

It's crazy that so many people carry pepper spray as self defense. I mean, it's effective as shit. But there are so many variables involved in getting a good hit and not getting any spray back into your own eyes.

If I was a lady jogger who jogged often I'd go as far as saying I think they should be sprayed once just to understand how awful it is and to also understand how to get out of a situation if they had to use it but also got some spray back in their eyes. Even walking through a mist of it, not even a direct application to your skin/face is going to feel like you got sweat and ground glass in your eyes until you produce enough tears to get the resin out of your eyes... and even then, you're going to have trouble seeing.

 

Maybe I'll start the MannDude institute of OC spray for lady joggers.

If you are going to start a class for lady joggers, you need to include training for bicycle invasion. I hear that is another big problem with jogging on trails. In some cases, it is fatal. When I lived in Houston years ago, there seemed to always be stories about women being hit by them. With more topics, you could charge double!

Severe persistent asthma so I'll also pass on it.

The one thing I've never understood is why the use of riot control agents like tear gas and pepper spray are banned in warfare by both the Chemical Weapons Convention and the 1925 Geneva Protocol but can be used on civilians...

There is a similar position with regard to expanding bullets, I think.

The US (which is not a signatory to the Hague Convention but has not used them in the past) army apparently plans to start using them in side-arms, and they have been used by American mercenaries in Iraq (who were not bound by army rules).

Looks like somebody in Piscataway just got a new landlord.  DuPont Fabros is selling their 360,000 sq ft DC in Piscataway to QTS Realty for $125 million.  QTS plans to expand the current 18 MW capacity to 26 MW.

side note: Piscataway is 36 miles outside of NYC so it would be nice if providers would stop advertising it as "New York City" when it's really that hellhole New Jersey

Read this sentence earlier and immediately thought of web hosting forums.

You gotta love SPAM friendly providers like Query Foundry (AS62638 ) who list not just one, but two administratively dissolved LLC's on their ARIN allocations.

My wife carries it with her in a pink thing... I guess it's like a pepper spray cozy or something. She also carries a flashlight about the same size. Also f**king pink. I give her *headdesk* points for that one every now and then... and I never use those keys. Especially in the dark.  I don't wanna die.

Sophomoric BS skiddies rapping about DDoS attacks is actually a thing and it's very existence makes me want to puke.

One "verse" in will make you think of Jonny boy or other industry douchebag.

A few terabytes of "that strong" ... what the f**k?  Did he just measure his bandwidth pipe using weed slang?  Snoop shit right there...  enjoy, lmao.

these stacks that we smashing
ROP gadgets to your address
the packets stay blasting
regardless of your patches
these keystrokes go east coast
then worldwide we online
find us and then sign us
we got the world behind us

if bot stats are honest
then doomsday is upon us
and this ddos adonis
still making good on his promise
your site nulled your firewall
is trash
(is trash)
your network is dead
take a look at all of these graphs

on vox and no stopping
that traceroute stop hoppin
software that we backdoored
root shells that we hacked for
toolbars and setups
our payload stay FUD
we reflect your defects
and cause them all to flood

prolexic cloudflare
we dont care
anytime anywhere
plug you in our datasphere
you outta here
no sony no xbox
your homies got less bots
then we do - we feed you
these packets that we bleed through

your .EDUs your .COMs
few terabytes of that strong
through copper through fiber
through air gaps like macgyver
these packets relentless
they gum it up like the dentist
no access molasses
when these bots in practice

you tied up when we fire it up
so respect (so respect) 
you tied up when we fire it up
so respect (so respect)
this upstream is so brutal
the CnC stay poodled
we got packets on packets on packets on packets

@MannDude @HalfEatenPie Why don't you guys make a ARM section on VPSboard and we can separate out some of the information/reviews in the 'Arms has legs' thread and then can continue to post new Arm news/reviews there as more come around?  Just a thought... maybe not the right place but it seems we do have some interest here.

my 2 cents.

Cheers!

Second that.

We have a "Coding, Scripting & Programming" for the software side, why not a "SBC, ARM, Home automation" side?

Have I mentioned lately how much I hate IPB?

 

Run updates, it always fucks something up.

 

Anyhow, until now, the side bar ads are going to be displayed above the content feed because IPB is retarded and broke the 'Pages' feature which I use to create custom sidebar blocks like the one that displayed the ads when they appear below the content feed.

 

Just making this known since last time ads were moved people freaked out on me. I'm working with IPB to find out why everytime I upgrade something new breaks.
