RiotACT Housekeeping 16-NOV-05.

By johnboy - 16 November 2005 8

A few points:

* Some of you will have noticed the site has become a bit sluggish of late. The main culprit is overly greedy robots hitting the old site, which is resource intensive, in an irresposible way. We have bandwidth and server upgrade processes underway which should kick in over the next few weeks. We’ve also instituted a robots.txt policy for pages on the old site which might solve the problem. It may be necessary to kill off those old pages and leave them to the google cache and archive.org (which currently chew up our resources checking if there have been changes to those old pages). On top of bad robots there are just plain more of you reading the site. The google ads more than compensate for that provided we manage our cash flow and anticipate demand.

* Deletions. If your comment is offtopic it might be deleted at any time and without warning. If you want to talk about something, start a new story. If you want your hand held (metaphorically) through that process email johnboy@the-riotact.com.

* Personal information. If you know something about someone else who comments on the site, but do not know them personally, keep it to yourself please. See above point about deletion as that stuff is almost never on topic and is just creepy. If, as sometimes happens, the story is about the person commenting, then of course that information is on-topic.

Thanks for your time, thanks for reading, especial thanks to those who comment (on-topic). Running this site is an endlessly rewarding process (even with the cockheads, weirdies, and litigating Liberals).

What’s Your opinion?

That depends on who you ask.

No, but it is your fault if they differ from mine…oh wait, that’s my fault…what was your fault then?

Spitfire3 2:13 pm 17 Nov 05

Hey! I didn’t… oh wait, you mean metaphorically.

Good work johnboy and co. And good work to everyone else for sharing your variety of views. I guess it’s not your fault if your opinions are wrong due to them being different from my own.

Most of the calls being to people that nobody in this city has even heard of just so you can annoy them in a drunk stupor?

That sounds like a week in paradise… does this mean riotact is paradise????

Yeah, keep up the great work, guys.

I think some of us (me included!) act like ungrateful house guests sometimes: you know, the kind who ask to stay for a couple of days (but actually end up staying three weeks!), mess your house up, eat all your food and drink all your beer and wine, leave unsightly stains on your sofa, try and crack on to your girl/boyfriend, and run up a $200 phone bill!

I think the above comment is not related to this post and request for it to be removed so we can start a post called “Johnboy how i love thee, let me count the ways”

All together now: 1 2 3 “We love you JohnBoy” (and of course, all the others who run this site and must sometimes wonder why they bother)
