Keep refreshing, you can do it!



[Edit by JeffT, Administrator, 2009-01-15: Official rule: No more using automated tools to refresh this thread (or anything on the Kumoricon server). Automated refreshing of this thread at one point was causing severe impact on our server, which impacted not only Kumoricon, but every other customer on our shared server.

Someone needs to make an alamo remake of the 300:

The 187.

"This is Mexico!"
"Mexico?  THIS IS TEXAS!"

"And before this is over, the world will see that even a Mexican named Santa can bleed."

"You will pay for your barbarism!"
[leap, cut off limb, et cetera]
"My cow!"
"It's not your cow anymore."
". . . our immigrants will blot out the sun!"
"Then we'll pay them less than minimum wage."

To be honest, The 300 kind of sucked

But it had some epic scenes nonetheless.

That's cheating isn't it?

If it isn't I can wget and store these to /dev/null for you... and have it done in a few days...

I just had 6 tabs open viewing this and the forum frontpage every 5 seconds.

So about 36 times a minute

For about an hour.

Would have gotten a lot more done, but lag was lagging.

Well, it hasn't been tested yet...

However the attached file Should probably work.

You'll also need to download http://www.christopherlewis.com/WGet/wget-1.11-beta-1b.zip and extract it to the same folder as the wget1mil.cmd file (or vice versa).

Well, you should just be able to unzip the linked zipfile someplace, pop the .cmd file in there, and double-click it.  Can you post what the dos window says is happening?  Or does it just run once?

1) Try right clicking the window and there should be a start selection option or something (It's been years, I've no idea what it really is called)
2) I saw a duplicate /dev/null in the first file.  You can try it again with that eliminated (right click the .cmd file, select edit, change the line with /dev/null to say it only once.)
3) Here's another file that may also work...

- edit -
file removed.

I've not tried Vista, I wouldn't know.

I remember the XP terminal used to be good (at least on Professional... I'm not sure if XP Home screwed it up intentionally or if it was a service pack), then it got harder to use.

It even has tab-completion in one version...

Oh yeah, you probably don't care at this point... but, did it make a file named 'NUL' in that folder, or did it actually properly use the NUL device?

Here are some better versions...

They're labeled inside with instructions on altering the delay (I picked 4-seconds for a reason).  Just right click, select -edit- and save when done.

There are also now three versions, each of which is the same, except for the page it uses to bounce off of to make the forums detect a topic switch.  That way this thread (the common page in all three) will go up faster then the others.

It's likely less an issue of the bandwidth and more an issue of the database load.  If we had 10 people doing that, it would mean 1000 queries per second, JUST on this page.  I'd have to really hope everything ends up being cached in memory at that point.

Probably an error happened.  I set it up with a failsafe to stop on any error to prevent it from working continuously at doing no downloading.

It even has tab-completion in one version...

It had tab completion at least as far back as Windows 2000, but you had to enable it in the registry (more precisely, select the keyboard key to use: obviously, you would want to set this to TAB). Only in Windows XP and after was this enabled by default.

I think the only difference between XP Home and Professional was a lack of many of the useful commands in Home.

Powershell, a free alternate shell based on .NET created by Microsoft for Windows XP and Vista, is even better than the built-in command shells.

You guys might not want to keep the wget running for too long. Keep in mind it loads both the web server and database server, and they are shared between multiple subscribers on our shared server. I checked the statistics recently and Wget is now one of the more popular browsers used to access the Kumoricon site! (I saw two distinct versions.)
