Hahah I dunno about the espy, but I definitely think some 10,000 image drinks are in order! At this rate we're 2-3 weeks away I reckon, so keep your calendars free around the end of Feb

Please people, When you're categorising an image, PLEASE try to put it in the right category. Although you might hate the porn, and think you're doing it damage by rating it as "stupid" or whatever, you're not - all it means is now the porn will display in the "work safe" category. Please don't fuck it up for everybody. I've just had to go through and reclassify some 70

As I mentioned in the plus613 section, "why did you come to the site?" may be "general chatter" but it's also regarding the site. "what books have you read?" fit firmly under the entertainment category, with films, tv, music and the like. Finally, "are you an M or an F?" is general chatter as it regards neither of the previous topics. If you have issues

Rather obviously, revert, darkklown and I are from Melbourne, Australia. I've posted a few pictures of the storm in Melbourne on Feb 3, 2005. The worst rain on record (150 years), the coldest February day on record (13 degrees celcius (55f), following 37 degrees (98f) the day before) - it even snowed in some parts of Australia (don't forget it's the middle of summer here). In one day, we had t

As I'm sure you've seen, we have a new forum design active now. We thought that maybe adding categories might encourage people to use it more, and would tie in nicely with the addition of categories to the images recently. We've been happy to see use of the forum increasing lately, it's becoming a cool place to hang out. Let us know what you think

Consider how much information has been posted to this thread since I did that test I dunno. Anyway I still don't care about the bandwidth at the moment, that's a problem for a couple of months from now, but if we do have to get the new server (which it still looks like we do) then the data problems are automatically fixed. The problem is still I/O load.. And it's rapidly approaching 2am

The thumbnails on the image pages are only loaded if you mouseover on them. However, I'll concede that I forgot about the JS and CSS files.

I'm talking about those other pages that people come here to see, the heavy pages with the big images. Those are a lot bigger than 12kB. -- If you re-read what I wrote...

Was it a page with a large number of comments? My numbers sure as hell don't match that Ultimately, server side, the size of the HTML is irrelevent. Apache generates the HTML from a couple of PHP scripts. It's all in memory and doesn't really touch the disks. The only thing that uses the disks, and causes I/O load, are displaying images and logging hits into the access_log, and occasional

You're right, however because we've spent hours developing a feature DOES mean I don't want to just throw it away. Bandwidth use isn't causing the too many connections problems. That's just ANOTHER problem that's coming soon, and that is automatically solved by the new server as it'll come with more than 2x the data allowance of what we have now. And when I say 600GB, I meant in images. Down the

I can't speak for the others, but I believe there's been far too much work gone into this site to start stripping it apart to its basic components. All the features on the site have been requested time and time again, it's taken thousands of hours of development time, and I'd hate to see it ruined. At the end of the day, aside from a handful of SQL queries, your stripped site is still going to ge

It's actually meant to have a "dark comedy" twist to it. Battle Royale is a very good film though, as is Requiem For A Dream and The Big Lebowski (all sit on my DVD shelf). You also can't really go past Trainspotting, but that's not a film I've seen recently.

Not sure about the best, but the most powerful movie I've seen lately is a French film called "Irreversible". If you want a *POWERFUL* film, which will run you through several different emotions yet will leave you feeling happy, you can't go past it (it IS a pretty horrific/disturbing film though).

There were numerous stories on the news weeks ago that people were going to Thailand supposedly to holiday/help after the disaster, however with the police busy with other things, they were free to prey on the children with little fear of being caught, etc. There's nothing quite like a disaster to bring out both the best, and the worst in people.
