    Regarding two issues WAB is facing...

    This value in the adminCP: Settings > Options > Server Settings and Optimization Options > NIX Server Load Limit should be set to 0.

    That should take care of the "server is busy" vBulletin error message.

    Trimming some old attachments from last decade, especially ones of low/questionable value, as well as uploads that got corrupted during a past vB upgrade, will help conserve bandwidth. Disabling uploads moving forward, with members using external image hosting sites instead, will help conserve more bandwidth.

    That should more or less take care of the "resource limit reached" problem.

    Frankly, this is bizarre. Not cool man.

    Yes bizarre, if one post their email ID in a public board. But, relax. This is where data security kicks in. You've been on the hardware side, you know what I'm talking about. 99% don't.

    Snapper gave away her throwaway email ID in a public board where spambots were hovering around, and I was just pulling her legs. I have many throwaway emails ID, if I needed to do anything. Plus, I'm getting old, porn doesn't count anymore. Oh, and btw, someone would for sure use snapper's throwaway email ID in the future, now that it has been sitting public for some days.

    And yeah, it's bizarre again, that you, out of all didn't understand this. :(

    You'd think people running things here would know this.

    Hmm, i use board attachments as it preserves stuff unlike those external sites that can disappear at any time.

    At the moment, the only person with the ability to do this is TDY.

    Guys, and Snapper, please don't discuss these things in the public forum. Try to use discretion. Much appreciated.
    “You don’t even have to be convicted of a crime to lose your job in this constitutional republic if the Senate determines that your conduct as a public official is clearly out of bounds in your role… because impeachment is not about punishment. Impeachment is about cleansing the office. Impeachment is about restoring honor and integrity to the office.”
    ~ Lindsey Graham

    thanks for the heads up ironduke. done.
    There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there has always been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that "My ignorance is just as good as your knowledge."- Isaac Asimov
