Yay! Finally some activity on the announcement board.

 

All hail @Emily, our new administrator overlord!




#2013280 Hear ye, hear ye. New Retired members!

Posted by Kway on 31 July 2017 - 08:08 PM

Congrats guys.

 

I wonder how many times one person could leave and get voted back into retired.

Happy birthday Strat!




#2005610 how to quit neopets

Posted by Kway on 20 April 2017 - 10:16 AM

I just quit cold-turkey. Trying to quit codex is harder though...




#2002432 Maybe stay off of youtube for a while, or activate Noscript

Posted by Kway on 02 March 2017 - 08:15 AM

Or run a decent adblocker. I haven't seen any sign of it unless Google is hosting it.




#2001655 The Pewdiepie situation - new media vs old media

Posted by Kway on 19 February 2017 - 02:13 PM

All I can say is that he is over-rated and there are far better people to follow and watch.

#1994300 Another dupe day?

Posted by Kway on 11 October 2016 - 08:59 AM

The last one kinda destroyed the site. It might be fun, but probably not the best thing to happen regularly.

 

Considering the current state, there isn't much left to destroy.




#1994046 Coli revamp & captcha is coming

Posted by Kway on 04 October 2016 - 08:53 PM

Possibly due to the discussion of getting around CAPTCHA's etc and how easy it will be :p

 

I can move it if others would like me to.

 

It hasn't even been implemented yet. We can worry about it once the captcha is official and until then, speculation wouldn't affect our botting efforts. FR's staff is focused on stopping simple bots that automate keyboard/mouse inputs that the hotkey update will make easier.




#1993678 Voting for lesser of two evils?

Posted by Kway on 27 September 2016 - 05:24 PM

There is always another choice. Just vote for somebody that isn't the big two names right now.




#1989003 We love the 90s!

Posted by Kway on 03 August 2016 - 11:04 PM

DragonBall is grossly underrated.

Kinda slow in the beginning, but once it picks up it's full throttle until the end.

Some of the best comedic moments between the two shows also.

Just wish Toriyama didn't forget Launch when Z came around.

Think the Fortune Teller Baba and King Piccolo Sagas were my favorite. What about you?

Oh man, that brings back memories.
I got the clear purple one and Pokémon Yellow for Christmas one year.
Was never really fond of the colour, but the games more than made up for it.

Been thinking of tracking one down on eBay so I can level up a team for Stadium 1 & 2 since we found our old N64 again recently.

Nothing like booze, bud, and a 90s* Pokémon Tournament on one's day off. ^_^

*Looks like only Red, Blue, and Yellow were 90s. Stadium (in North America) was 2000 and Stadium 2 was 2001. Oops!

 

Why not use Pokemon Stadium to level them up with GB Tower?

 

As for DB, I find DB much better than DBZ. I always skip the Pilaf Saga because there are some boring filler episodes where nothing interesting happens. I think my favorite is the Commander Red Saga because the Korin and Mercenary Tao episodes has (imo) some of the best developments and ends with Goku rampaging through a fortress.




#1958095 never do your maths on the plane

Posted by Kway on 10 May 2016 - 12:39 AM

There's another side you're not seeing.

 

A basic bitch not knowing math and english.

 

ODEs and PDEs are written with 95% numbers and the english alphabet. I'm sorry, if you think that is a cryptic code, then you haven't seen real ciphers and you're a basic bitch.

 

I always knew Gravity Falls would be educational in some way to everybody.

 

I'm tempted to write a script that can encode a message (possibly multiple layers for maximum suspicion) so I can print out the encoded message and work on decoding it while traveling.




#1957092 Apple Steals Music?

Posted by Kway on 05 May 2016 - 03:42 PM

THIS should be why? I always thought it was because computers crash and accidents happen, not because someone might offer me a free trial of something that would delete all my stuff. Though you get what you pay for, I guess.

 

Maybe it is just my world but you shouldn't openly trust everything. It only takes one mistake (accidental or intentional) to lose everything. It could be anything like accidentally throwing away a piece of paper that ended up being important or your house burning down. As a packrat, I always keep multiple redundant copies and only trash them if I already have additional copies of every piece of information. I even keep backups of everything I downloaded that serves a purpose.

 

Just look at the forced Windows 10 upgrades. They might claim everything will still work but the truth is nothing is perfect and I've seen many systems go down because of it.




#1954802 Recaptcha

Posted by Kway on 26 April 2016 - 12:22 PM

The method they describe is the first one that popped in my head when I was thinking about this. :p I don't think I'd have figured out the hostname spoofing they mentioned though, that was quite clever.

 

 

This one would be much harder than any of their previous ones (purely image captchas tend to be simpler). I'd prefer if they just keep it to user profiles and anywhere else they currently have it rather than in areas we use for our programs like shops or games etc. The main reason I can't see them adding it for main shops right now is because it would mean them sending data to Google and handling the response every time somebody attempted a captcha and, given their servers can't handle a bit of lookup scraping, that might not go too well.

 

I have to agree, they took a good solution and implemented it poorly. They should've made the captchas site wide but require it based on the player's activity. Only one or two requests a minute under the account/ip address, about one captcha a day. Only 10 or so requests per minute, about one captcha every few hours. More than 60 requests in a minute, just place a ten minute ban on the account/ip address.

 

It is almost insulting that TNT can't figure out light-weight but effective solutions to bots.




#1954628 Recaptcha

Posted by Kway on 25 April 2016 - 06:42 PM

I think this is now relevant and an interesting read for anybody that wants to try making bots to get around it.
