Re: Updated Forum Permissions

What if it is a class C address? Banning its class B range would be somewhat excessive. Hi and welcome to the forum. It really depends on which Class B network is responsible for the spambots and also which location they are based in. Historically, when we've opened up forum registration before, (a...

We're up to 29th now and chasing Denmark hard. The gap then gets very big so I think 28th will be our limit if we get that. Chris.

Hi All, Not taking part in this as I'm busy doing other stuff but for those that are, from past experience PPS runs best when all the table can fit in the cache which is with two threads per task for most modern CPUs. Older Xeons with bigger caches are better with one thread per task but it's fairl...
