Flood Interval as Anti-Spam Measure

Filed under: Anti-spam, phpBB — Dave Rathbun @ 11:49 am CommentsComments (3) 

A few weeks ago I posted about increasing the flood interval on my honey pot board. My theory was that since bots seem to have a fairly regular posting process I could cut down on the number of spam posts simply by changing the flood interval.

It didn’t seem to work.

phpBB Weekly Podcast Now Available

Filed under: phpBB2 Refugees — Dave Rathbun @ 12:45 pm CommentsComments (3) 

I found Episode #88 of phpBB Weekly in my iTunes library this morning, so I went over to their site and it has been released there as well. As always, Douglas and David provide enough distractions to avoid being boring :) and I felt like that the message I was most interested in getting out there was accomplished.

If you aren’t subscribing to the podcast via iTunes (or other similar option) then you can listen to the discussion on their site.

It was not the first time I have been on the podcast, but it is the first time that something I have done was the subject of the podcast. That was fun. :)

phpBB2 Refugees Launches Today…

Filed under: phpBB2 Refugees — Dave Rathbun @ 12:01 am CommentsComments (2) 

Today we officially launch the phpBB2 Refugees site. The past few months have been used to test and tweak the code as well as set up some of the documentation and lay the groundwork for future growth. As mentioned previously, I got to talk about this project on the phpBB Weekly podcast last Saturday.

The site will open with a focus on building the community and setting up for support. The next phase will include special handling of MODs and Styles, and we hope to have those ready to go early next year.

So come on over and check us out, see if you like what you see. 8-)

Filed under: phpBB, phpBB2 Refugees — Dave Rathbun @ 1:28 pm CommentsComments (1) 

I’m going to be on the live phpBB Weekly podcast tomorrow, December 6th, to talk about the looming launch of the phpBB2 Refugees site. If you want to know more about the site, our plans for the future, or anything else related be sure to tune in. 8-) While I would not quite say I’m going “rogue” as the say on their site… ;-)
