Okay, I updated the Wikipedia entry with a link here, at least.

From http://ilx.thehold.net/thread.php?msgid=41#unread

works fine for me in here, too. What do we have to do to stress-test this thing? how hard does it have to be hit before it poxy-fules?

Woah! Don't stress-test it yet! It'll definitely break, as it's on a shared server. It's just to fill the database with a reasonable amount of stuff so code tests have some connnection to the real world.

Maybe linking from outside isn't the best idea just yet?

Ah, that would do. Hold on. *edits*

Ned Raggett (Ned), Tuesday, 15 August 2006 16:03 (thirteen years ago) link

I don't believe it's only because of that newspaper thing either. This kind of "no reply from server" was happening now and then (a couple of times during the last couple of weeks - remember the previous weekend's "we're back" ?) besides the poxy fuling.

StanM (StanM), Tuesday, 15 August 2006 16:03 (thirteen years ago) link

That hadn't been happening to me at all. I was just getting poxy fuled a lot. Like, loads.

Granted, but Andrew's brief message to me was clear enough:

> Nope, not been pulled. Just there was an article in the Guardian (I
> think) which linked to ILX. The server is being bombarded. :(
>
> Andrew

So there you go.

Ned Raggett (Ned), Tuesday, 15 August 2006 16:06 (thirteen years ago) link

Oh. I sit corrected, thanks.

StanM (StanM), Tuesday, 15 August 2006 16:08 (thirteen years ago) link

I mean, keep in mind Andrew may be getting odd info there himself. But he's there keeping an eye on the server and presumably knows where the traffic is coming from. *shrug*

Ned Raggett (Ned), Tuesday, 15 August 2006 16:09 (thirteen years ago) link

The Boserver sells 457,000. If every single one of them tried to load ILX that'd be 10 times the average load. But still ...

stet (stet), Tuesday, 15 August 2006 16:21 (thirteen years ago) link

Have we at least put links in every other boards so that the ilx diaspora knows to migrate here?

As has been told to you before.

Ned Raggett (Ned), Tuesday, 15 August 2006 16:28 (thirteen years ago) link

I'm OTM there. The hold can probably take a bit moer than it has now, right enough, so letting forlorn lost ilxors know should be OK.

I wouldn't open the wikipedia/world announcement floodgates though. After all, the real ILX surely can't be down for much longer, can it?

stet (stet), Tuesday, 15 August 2006 16:30 (thirteen years ago) link

No idea.

Ned Raggett (Ned), Tuesday, 15 August 2006 16:31 (thirteen years ago) link

I'm not counting on seeing the old database again until it's running on new code.

I Am Curious (George) (Slight Return) (Rock Hardy), Tuesday, 15 August 2006 16:40 (thirteen years ago) link

sad thing is first thing i did when i realized ilx was beyond poxy fuled was peep raggett's myspace profile for news.

bohren un der club of gear, Tuesday, 15 August 2006 16:42 (thirteen years ago) link

Oh dear. (But it says more about me than you, I think.)

Ned Raggett (Ned), Tuesday, 15 August 2006 16:43 (thirteen years ago) link

^^^ roffle @ screen name, gear

I Am Curious (George) (Slight Return) (Rock Hardy), Tuesday, 15 August 2006 16:43 (thirteen years ago) link

as long as someone remembers to implement and incorporate a poll facility into the new new code all will be well.

konal doddz, Tuesday, 15 August 2006 16:44 (thirteen years ago) link

You misspelled "hell" there.

I Am Curious (George) (Slight Return) (Rock Hardy), Tuesday, 15 August 2006 16:45 (thirteen years ago) link

where all the noise duders at??

bohren un der club of gear, Tuesday, 15 August 2006 16:48 (thirteen years ago) link

rofflz at seeing the words "All Noise Dude Summertime Fun Board and Pickle Bar" on wikipedia.

(Credit to Jess for making that call, BTW.)

Ned Raggett (Ned), Tuesday, 15 August 2006 16:49 (thirteen years ago) link

could this end up being the permanent ilx home? where is this being hosted? am i missing an explanation somewhere upthread that i'm too lazy to read?

bohren un der club of gear, Tuesday, 15 August 2006 16:51 (thirteen years ago) link

No, this is a temporary test site on a shared host. The permanent home will be elsewhere -- but this is good for testing out new code in the interim.

Ned Raggett (Ned), Tuesday, 15 August 2006 16:52 (thirteen years ago) link

it's pretty swift

No, on my crappy shared space server, probably.

I put this up last week to test out code changes/rewrites for the nuILX project that's starting up. Then ILX died, and I asked for some test posts so there was actually something here to work on. then loads of people turned up!

It should be quick. ILX has 4 million posts. This has 400. :D

stet (stet), Tuesday, 15 August 2006 16:57 (thirteen years ago) link

nu-nu-ILX, 1 million posts by Saturday.

Actually I was catching up at the fracturing despair over on the right these days that just maybe they were wrong about what a good idea Iraq was. I'd be gleefully entertained were it not for all the misery and death.

Ned Raggett (Ned), Tuesday, 15 August 2006 17:20 (thirteen years ago) link

Woo hoo! I found ILX!

(hugs screen)

I've been looking everywhere for this.

JohnneyB, Tuesday, 15 August 2006 17:24 (thirteen years ago) link

Some guy named Swearingen had kidnapped ILX and was renting her out for two bits a fuck.

Supposedly youtube has been down all day.

Thank god ilx wasnt in that!

I'd love to see a video of the poxy fule

stet (stet), Tuesday, 15 August 2006 18:44 (thirteen years ago) link

I have nothing to say at this time.

From the Red State piece:
"It does us very little good to coddle or otherwise allow people like Moqtada Al Sadr to be coddled."

I love it when forward leaning tuff guys use idiomatic language with abandon. It's time to stop coddling and take the gloves off! The Sunnis keep moving their leg onto the Shiite's side of the seat, so we may be forced to pull over the car. No more coddling.

Floofer Barrrrrr (Fluffy Bear Hearts Rainbows), Tuesday, 15 August 2006 19:35 (thirteen years ago) link

You know, the observer article didn't even give a link, it just named "ilxor" as the site. For people to find it though that, they'd need to google first. So unless all the traffic is coming from search engine referrals, I really don't think it can be related to the Observer.

JimD, Tuesday, 15 August 2006 19:36 (thirteen years ago) link

well, you know that ilxor.com redirected to ilx.wh3rd.net, right?

lf, Tuesday, 15 August 2006 20:38 (thirteen years ago) link

word in the tubes is ilx got sonned by hipinion in a internet msg board beef

How am I not on the statscock? I've been posting like mad!

nklshs (nklshs), Tuesday, 15 August 2006 21:03 (thirteen years ago) link

There are discrepancies, I think, with the statscock.

Once again?

Ned Raggett (Ned), Tuesday, 15 August 2006 21:05 (thirteen years ago) link

maybe one of them blanks is you nick.

Ruud Haarvest (KenL), Tuesday, 15 August 2006 21:06 (thirteen years ago) link

Yeh, it's having troube with people who a) didn't register and b) have registered with their real names instead of their screen names and are now having to change their name box all the time.

this is the reg page's fault, it's confusing.

stet (stet), Tuesday, 15 August 2006 21:08 (thirteen years ago) link

yeah "board database failure" doesn't sound good. :(
