Did a search for quad - timed out
Tried again - got "You cannot make another search so soon after your last; please try again in a short while."

Laughing

Are we limited to the number of searches here? I'm not upset, since the search here is pretty crap, just curious.

Yeah, see here also:

http://board.flatassembler.net/topic.php?t=6580

But most boards will limit the minimum time between consecutive searches from the same IP address. I expect mostly to stop someone trying some sort of DoS attack.

I think it is more like a 30 second timeout. But it does happen sometimes, I know of another board that had an unhappy user who then proceeded to kill the board with a DoS attack but was frustrated by the timeout imposed.

Of course it doesn't really help against a large DDoS attack, but then that sort of thing is almost impossible to stop.

Yes of course, it is well known that robots act just like drunk people.

Simple solution then. Don't get drunk when signing in with a CAPTCHA.

0.1, the pictures are made in a way to be 'confusing' for a neural net bot -- by writing some kind of picture it has never seen before (and actually nothing of that sort before) -- remember that it learns by example.

I'm not so sure if this is how it goes however

can this end one day???...to be infinite..?

one theory about the troll:
he write a lot of messages, not because he have something to say, or some interrest in the subject (far or near), just because a troll is a personn who does not exists...
like the bots, the guys who will post the same messages on a lot of various forums, some companies commercials that will literally harcel us with their products.. or me Very Happy becaus eof interrest in everything and not enough time to learn all by them selves, so they ask each time they have a little problem.

one good example is the problem i had with my hard drive (yes it is a redundant subject) i simply posted this not as a troll post, many guys replies to me (thanks) but only 0 of these replies was usefull because i resolved the problem by myself as i wanted... it is just a post to remember, a sort of story if you prefer. interresting a bit cause it is directlly linked to the subject of the forum... ASM PROGRAMMING USING FASM.
then, everyone who will read this thread will know what happen if he/she write a non safe disk eraser (command dd in linux).
i hope it will increase the knowledge base each time i post something...it is not the case of everybody.

good night.
