On Sept. 10 we had a blip in the database that knocked us off line for around 30 minutes. It required a repair and rebuild of the database.
I am seriously considering switching to MariaDB. The MySQL we currently has had several incidents where i had to rebuild repair the database.
Both forums have added or beefed up security to try and stop the spammers.
An armed society is a polite society. Manners are good when one may have to back up his acts with his life.
We sleep safe in our beds because rough men stand ready in the night to visit violence on those who would do us harm.
I added the sites to a beta for a new site monitoring software today.
Zilore (https://zilore.com) is in open beta at this time. So I signed up to see how well it will perform.
Our deepest condolences to the families and victims of this event.
The ban guns group has once again came out in force screaming that inanimate metals and plastics are to blame for the actions of yet another deranged leftist.
Once again the uninformed media is claiming that a cartridge that was adopted by the US military due to it’s light recoil is the most deadly cartridge in the world. This is a round that began as a gopher killer. Most states don’t allow it to be used for anything bigger then a coyote.
The deadliness of the round comes from the early versions that had the bullets tumbling as they left the barrel. This resulted in larger wounds when the bullet would hit while going sideways. However the tumbling bullets were highly inaccurate so this was corrected by using a different rifling not long after production began. The only advantage over earlier cartridges are now soft recoil due to lower power and lightness of rounds so a soldier can carry more rounds on them.
