Posts in Update is Down

Yep sorry about that, so a couple of our sites are down for the moment >_<, the nee server is doing a FSCK as of now (probably due to a bad shutdown or some other glitch that didn’t come up before), once the FSCK is finished, the server should be back up ^_^’

update: every site is back up ^_^ total downtime 1h15m, yeah FSCK takes loads of time…but better that, than a corrupted hard drive hehehe as always never forget to make your own backups! ;D

Downtime on Server 1

Seems Jaguarpc is having some problems with their network… grrrr this is becoming troublesome, its not the first time in this past few months there have been a couple (comparing with basically years of stability…) and they are always very vague about it, the server is rock solid, but the network performance is not on par, so because of this server 1 is down, so a lot of sites, including are down as well ^_^’ lets see how long does this drag…. and if i have to start moving to one of my other providers….

Micro Update

Humm sorry for the lack of updates, kinda going to change how this work, now all hostcult/s2r updates will come from here, and i’ll push the older s2r blog to here hehehe, keeping it simple and nice to everyone, more updates in a couple of days, trying to improve performance on a couple of sites and opening a couple of new ones before August is gone hehehe ^-^

Quick Improvement and New Site

Hummm i’ve just moved to a new server, in preparation for some changes (social features and video), also i’ve made several improvements in ( mostly around opensearch ) and launched torrent engine ( kinda mostly did this one for me… i’m sick of all other hentai search engines that are always down or searching weird torrents, this way i have full control of content ^_^ ), also changed the look of this browser for a more clean a readable look hehehe

Faster Faster! FASTER!

Yep, been doing a lot of improvements, mostly speed and optimisation, almost every site was improved, stuff like css compression and image optimisation, also i’ve created a cnd/mirror system to help improve speed of mostly used stuff (layouts and stuff), so you will probably see an increased speed on most sites ^-^ <br />
<br />
on other news, been working on a couple of new projects as well as major reconstruction of tentakle and minor improvements on smutish … ahhh think thats all

Updates and Transfers

Hummm, i’ve made serious improvements on Besigh it should work like a charm now ^_^ also a major clean up of Hentaish is on its way, as well as 4 new sites hehehe

Spreadout Updates

Haiii haii been updating loads of sites and i have like… 3 or 4 new ones coming up, but for now… just re-did hostcult (yep our hosting domain), since we moved the hosting business to just hosting S2R projects, i didnt have time to re-do the domain and making something useful, well now i did, just a simple blog about hosting, both S2R and well the industry hehehe ohhh also i did a cool site called Smutish (its kinda an adult aggregator of sorts), so check them out YAYYY ^_^

Welcome to the New Hostcult

Heheheh,wait? isnt hostcult a hosting company? … humm it was/is ^_^ but since about a year ago, we refocused Send to Receive into a kind of web developing company and decided to just turn Hostcult into S2R solely hosting and services provider, so we pointed our customers to other cool hosting companies and some of them we still host (but this time for free >_< ), but since we have the domain (mostly used for dns and domain aliases), we might as well use it hehehe, so what does this new hostcult bring?

Well mostly talk about hosting, news about the hosting industry, reviews about hosting (that we use), well stuff like that, also with hosting related subjects with s2r (so if any s2r site is down or there is any problem with our servers, we will post here updates, since this blog is hosted on google’s blogger)…

Think thats about it for now (still fixing up the hostcult theme), more stuff soon enough hehehe

Land of Upgrades

Yep, major improvements on hentaish (i went through everything, css, html, code, posts, graphics), preparing for the reboot ^_^ also a lot of tweaking on neechan and tentakle, and last and not least some upgrades on panchira… mostly security and standard upgrades yayyy

Quick and Dirty Upgrades

Yep Yep been busy offline, but also online, doing major improvements on (more sites added, the search is much quicker and nicer), also improving search, should be way better now (it has more than 300 other image boards and such…) heheheh integrated google’s friends connect on and on, especially on kudasai it made a vast improvement in speed compared with using meebo’s rooms ^_^

Neechan Woes and Fixing Spam!

Well we run neechan and tentakle (these are both anonymous image boards) and since like a month ago, we started getting bombed with CP , although completely against our rules, the idea of a image board is that anyone can post easily, so CP and other nasty stuff tends to show up from time to time, but that was not the case, this was continuous multiple posts a day, the idea is simple, to bypass our various protections, they just post a CP image with the url to visit on the image itself, so things like banning the domain aren’t going to work as well as banning just posting images, cause that’s a natural thing to do on a image boards, so what did we do?

Hummm we started by increasing the restrictions, adding captcha and starting to ban by image hash, however all of these the bots kept bypassing, old captcha systems can be broken pretty easily by software, images can be changed ever so slightly to bypass image hash, that was especially hard on neechan’s wabaka captcha, that was easily broken, this got to a point that rightly so someone told google that we were hosting CP ourself, but only between the time of posting and the time it takes for an admin (me) to delete it, so clearly we needed to improve even more our code, so we hacked the code and started using re-captcha.

So did it work? actually yes, not only cause re-captcha is quite a strong captcha system, but mostly cause these bots are targeted to this software and its weaknesses, if i would change to a more simple setup i believe it would also break the bots, well until it was programmed to break that particular system, but this way, we can outsource at least part of our security to someone that knows captchas and thus solving our problem, so will we switch tentakle also to re-captcha, hummm if CP starts passing through it, absolutely ^_^.oO ( thank you recaptcha )
