    Don't worry, once vBulletin 3 hits final, the other forums get washed away

    That sounds about right.

    RS network usage:

    http://www.rackshack.net/english/aboutus/networks.asp

    ..so, they must have pretty big lines..

    Rackshack has quite a few lines that would possibly add up to 10Gb, though?

    Im not an expert on issues like that. Anyway off to find something to eat..

    Edit: http://home.cfl.rr.com/eaa/ConnectSpeed.htm thats not the one I knew, I cant seem to find that one. This page shows you all connection speeds and stuff, the other page I knew listed all network/internet connection speed, with links to creator's sites. I cant seem to find it again tho.
    Actually, I would argue that saying "because jelsoft are hosted by a company,
    they have a 10GB pipe" is stupid
    but that's just me :P
    Besides, the actual pipe doesn't mean **** if the rest of the equipment can't provide the same speeds, and I'm almost willing to bet that the amount of servers directly connected to 84000Mbps lines can be counted on less than one finger

    [edit]
    Just to reference your ConnectSpeed page..
    You do realize that he would be saying jelsoft have access to *above TAT-14*? [/edit]

    ya right.
    about a year ago, we were Telia Sweden's (Telia Net - google for it if you haven't heard about them ) biggest customer.
    We had a one giga*bit* connection (well, 4 of them over 4 physical locations ).

    Talking about 10GB is just *stupid*.
    Unless my maths are off, you're talking about a connection near 84000 megabit per second.

    Have a look at rackshack's network usage: http://rackshack.net/english/aboutus/networks.asp
    They're a *really* big host.. and there's no 10GB listed

    I'd say the best way to comment on your post is "no", but thanks for trying

    Overloading someone's CPU is also a dos attack
    DoS = Denial of Service.
    * Hogging every bit of someone's available bandwidth = denial of service
    * Hogging all resources of a server = denial of service

    For some reason, I am getting the feeling that you guys don't understand the theory behind DDOS attacks. I could explain it or I could point you to a site that explains it better than I can. I think I will do both. In a DDOS attack, mutiple computers send data (obviously useless) to a computer hoping to overload the computer's internet connection. If your server's internet connection is at 100% load, you are effectively forced offline. I have never heard of a computer processor being overloaded by a DDOS attack to the point where it can't process anymore but I suppose it could happen (although not likely). Anyway regardless of what you run, if the internet connection fills up, you are offline. The person who is attacking message boards is obviously an amateur since he doesn't know how to blast a site correctly. If he knew what he was doing, he wouldn't be blasting exampledomain.com/forum, he would be blasting exampledomain.com with enough traffic to fill up the connection. Anyway, here is the link to an article that explains this better than I can:

    http://grc.com/dos/grcdos.htm

    Edit: I forgot to mention. Since vBulletin.com is hosted by a company, the jerk attacking it would have to send at least 10GB of Data to push it offline considering how the company would have at least a 10GB connection.
    10GB connection?
    ya right.

    So far my members have not complained yet, plus they are temp. I will be waiting vB3 RC1 or the first release where templates will be saved when upgrading. This is just temp style, I was playing around with colors. I really liked them, I've seen them on several sites.

    Try to take it down, I beg of you :P
    Is it just me or are the fonts on your buttons so tiny to the point where they hurt to read? Seriously, what is the big deal with super-small fonts on buttons? Pixel fonts I can understand an obsession with, they do seem to have become the fad for buttons in the last 2-3 years, but not these godawfully small sizes that only ants can read!

    Your style reminds me of WHT.
