Alex K.'s Activity

  1. Alex K. added a post in a topic: Number of online users with hosted service   

    The number is an average over the entire 48 hours. You could have 480 users online at for one hour and then have the board be deserted for the next 47, and still be fine on the 10 user plan. So long as you don't exceed an average of 10 users on your board over any given 48-hour period, you won't have to upgrade your plan (and if you occasionally exceed the limit but are under it most of the time, IPS will often ignore it).

    Additionally, whenever a new version is released, you can upgrade to it without having to pay any extra fees as long as you're on an IPS hosting package.

    How badly do I need to be worried about this?

    1. Herofiles ★

      Hum.. now?.. its says.. FAILING.. dont know whats not to worry about :P

    2. Fishfish0001

      A tad worried. 27 seconds is ridiculous for spin up.

    3. Alex K.

      I was thinking the same thing. Hopefully it's just a one-time thing, but I'm backing everything up and then I'll run a bunch of stress tests and hope that it fails during them if it's going to fail at all.

    4. ᴡᴅツ

      what software to test this?

      my laptop got a small knock once and it caused my hard drive to give me "disk failure imminent" messages everytime the damn thing boots up... the hard drive has functioned for the last 5 years during this imminent failure without a single problem lol

      start backing up your data

      @Anthony... That's a long time to have a hard drive. I think my oldest hard drive is like 3 years tops.

      i have a strict policy on only replacing things when they need replacing lol. My laptop only has 1 gig RAM and a celeron processor lol works just fine though :)

    just realized that it actually is possible to put IP.Content blocks in the forums. Whoever at IPS thought that one up: THANK YOU SO FREAKING MUCH XD

    1. Graeme S.

      Oh R'ly?

    2. .Peter

      This is good news.

    3. .Peter

      Wait... how? I just tried and it didn't work at all.

    4. Alex K.

      {parse block="yourblockname"} in the template.

  4. Alex K.

    Getting kind of desperate, could anyone with a decent knowledge of hooks check ?

    hates Internet Explorer with a passion.

    1. Olivier Turbis

      who doesn't :)

    3. Robulosity2

      I dont... I hate Chrome far far more

    4. Alex K.

      Why's that? Chrome doesn't mangle your code (XD) and it's actually really fast, simple and extensible.

    5. AndyF

      deltree c:windowsprogram filesinternet explorer ftw :)

    6. Alex K.

      ^ I wish, but I need to keep it so I can make my code work with it. :

    Looking to do some custom IP.Content coding -

    1. .Brian

      Check that in firefox a lot of bugs...

    2. Alex K.

      Shows fine for me in Firefox 3.6.3.

    3. .Brian

      Am using Firefox 3.6.3 as well...

    4. .Brian

      The -10px in the .general_box h3 { is what is causing it.

    5. Alex K.

      My bad, I was looking at it on Pure.

    6. Alex K.

      Should be fixed for all skins now.

    7. .Brian

      Your welcome.

  8. Alex K.
