Re: Forum IP blocking

I think we are over-thinking things here! Kismet is remarkably good at catching new spam and I think a layered approach of requiring captchas before an account has 5 legit posts is probably more than enough to shut down the spam.

Besides, phpBB has a module for all of this already!

Re: Testnet

You can run both on the same machine, you only have to start two namecoind daemon processes with different configuration directories (using -datadir=). At least that's what I do. Ahh, great! I still think we should have some kind of dedicated resources on this. As people just float in and out of th...

Forum IP blocking

I accidentally left my VPN on and I was prevented from posting because of the IP address. While spambots are a major pain, given the nature of the topic we are discussing I think auto-blocking spammy IP's is inappropriate. I can see requiring additional reverse Turing tests, but I'm on an account wi...

Thanks for poking around on testnet, check your account : )
Thanks! I have yet to see the transaction, but I guess this is to be expected if the test network is small? I've also added another 24/7 node to the testnet.
Nope, your regular address : )

Testnet

There have been a few requests as of late asking about the testnet. Apparently, there was only 1-3 computers up at anytime, which sounds like life-support to me. I would like to propose that we have namecoind spawn a testnet client by default. Having a functioning testnet (and faucet) is really vita...

Re: Testnet

What's your namecoin address? It would be great if you could keep the testnet up and running. I've got an NMC box running 24/7, is it a PITA to set up? My address for the "real" network is NDMMAbbyFZKNNkjg67Ev1AmbPmgw8FsqyB, for testnet mqiGPrMwV62pkPyoWWdpb9eKm5rsWLUpJH. Or did you mean my IP? I r...

Re: Testnet

Thanks for the info. I'm not going to work on the client, but instead I want to test code that registers names and so on. And while a name isn't particularly expensive, I would have preferred to use testnet-coins for that rather than real ones; but if that's not so easily possible, I have no proble...

Why cache/TTL expirations >1 hour are stupid.

TTL is the value that is used to force the local DNS resolver to do a look-up on the domain name/IP mapping. This is crazily inefficient compared to just passing around a bloom filter to check if a domain name has changed. Say we wanted to create a bloom filter that would track what domains have cha...
