The Spam Thread!

Aww! Yay!

Berry Brick Road's Oz looks and seems a lot like Germany in parts. Now I miss Germany, so I shall tell you a delightful story about Germany. I am being just a little sarcastic about this story being delightful.

My father, who is not a good person but can be tolerable and even funny on rare occasion, is half German and he grew up in Germany during, of all times, World War II. He sold newspapers when he was a boy, and he and the other paperboys bragged to their peers about reading the comics before anyone else each day.

Patricia: "So... You ran around saying, 'Ha ha! I know what the comics say first!' :| "
Father: "We didn't have other entertainment!"
Me: "That's not true! He used to tell me how he would jump on and off moving trolleys!"
Father: "Shut up, Prudence! No one wants to hear you talk and - "

Eh, forget the rest of what he said. Doesn't matter. Anyway, Germany itself felt cozy when I was there, especially when I was there as an adult. If I had to live outside the US, I would opt for Deutschland.

Edit
Whyyyyyy do I so often start new pages?

You were advertising it so passionately that I had to see it.

It didn't shock me that much after I've been cultured on Drawn Together (and a couple of other crude cartoons). Just remember our sweet Strawberry Sweetcake who almost killed Wooldoor Sockbat, but she got devoured by Toot Braunstein, eventually...

All right, then. Just to make sure, now I checked the backups: they are fine, and they are taken daily. The last backup was made today at 4:00 (CET).

Good to hear. I trust that you keep the backups offsite (as in, downloaded from the server into a USB hard disk in your room at home) too for extra safety?

In the meantime, I just tried to see if I can put my foot to where my word is and tried setting up a phpBB install from scratch. Net time: two hours exactly at 20Mbps speed using the Debian netinstall CD and the Thailand Debian Mirror- creating a web server and SSH server image only, a clear list of what I needed to apt-get install, using links2 to grab the phpBB tarball, and Midnight Commander to uncompress it into place. The biggest time waster was setting up the mysql user rights using phpmyadmin- I estimate that one and a half hours of the two hours was actually spent on that. It will be faster if it was just a database recovery.

Packages installed:
  1. mysql-server
  2. mysql-client
  3. imagemagick
  4. php5-gd
  5. php5-mysql
  6. ftpd
  7. phpmyadmin
  8. links2
  9. mc
  10. bzip2
These packages then chainloaded about 180 or so dependency packages.

No, it's not available for access anywhere. It's only local to my internal network and is not accessible outside the geek-hole.

Yeah, anyone can host a forum. The big question is if the internet speed, storage, memory and CPU power you have is enough to handle the amount of users you're expecting.

Well, if you meta it, Twilight Sparkle ate Strawberry Shortcake. Which sorta makes sense and still doesn't make sense.

No...I was not advertising it at all.

Merely listing a name of the film is not advertising in any way, shape, or form. If I was passionately advertising it like you say I was then I would be like "OMG GO SEE SHED.MOV!! I DON'T LIKE IT BUT JUST SEE IT ANYWAY!!". Now THAT is advertising the film.

See the difference? I was merely warning folks who love Fluttershy to stay away from the film, and it did involve giving out the name of the film because if I didn't include the name of it, no one would know what I was talking about.

Sorry, but in my opinion, I was not advertising the film. If you were just joking about it, then I apologize for getting slightly irritated, but sometimes I can't tell if someone is just joking or being serious, especially on a forum.
I love foxes, especially the one in my avatar.

It is downloaded to one of my VPSs which then uploads it to my desktop machine at home. So the backups are already present on 2 different places, isn't it enough? Wink If you'd like to, I could mirror them to a few other places. I could also have it sent to you by e-mail, if you want.

Anyway, I already gave both you and Blake access to both backup repositories, so you can also download the backups anytime yourselves.

Honestly, this site has so low traffic that it could even be hosted from my 1,6 GHz Windows XP desktop. Though it would be still slower.

Really? Where? When? I want to see it! Big Grin

Yes, I was kind of joking. Obviously you were doing the opposite, anti-advertising, if that word exists.

Though in the media, negative advertisement also has advertising effect, and I referred to this fact. If you're so passionately against something and suggest people to don't see it, many people will just see it, exactly because they get curious about the thing you unsuggested. So... yeah... basically it works as an advertisement, even if you didn't mean it so. And so I got curious about the Fluttershy video you were ranting about.

Don't get irritated! This topic doesn't worth it, and anyway, I didn't want to irritate you at all... so... please don't get irritated!

Nah, that's good enough Smile

Thanks Smile I never used it tho- figured that the backups is in good hands as is Smile

Kiwifruit Jam Wrote:You've forgot about wget. Wink
Wget came preinstalled on Debian iirc Tongue And Links2 filled in the blanks for wget anyway by providing a rudimentary text mode web browser to access the phpbb site and download the tarball Tongue

As for cPanel, well, I can't find the Debian package, and then found out that they don't support Debian.

Agreed.

Well, it's troll logic. Toot Braunstein = Tara Strong = Twilight Sparkle. Strawberry Sweetcake = Strawberry Shortcake. Tongue

Sorry. I just been having a lot of college related issues today, and Im not feeling too happy at all. I will talk about those issues in my next post...there is a high possibility I may be going home later this week because Im feeling homesick.

Now that I think about it....it is advertising it in the way you explained it. The Angry Video Game Nerd does it all the time. He reviews a bad horrible game, tells people not to play it, but then people do anyway because they want to experience how bad said game is.

This was bugging me since I did the maths the other day.

If you think about it and apply InsaneTrollLogic, CN's reason to screw Hasbro over is very clear and it appears that Hasbro's management are probably GenreBlind. CartoonNetwork and Boomerang are owned by AOL Time Warner. AOL Time Warner also owns DC, whose toy rights are with Hasbro's rival, Mattel. Aggravating things is that Hasbro themselves currently holds the toy rights to DC rivals Marvel, which in turn is owned by AOL Time Warner rival and former Hasbro broadcaster Disney. Why Hasbro didn't think about this themselves is beyond anyone's guess.

And that's it. I figured out why Transformers Animated, G.I. Joe Renegade, MLP:FIM, SSC:BBA and Care Bears are being screwed over!
