  1. It’s like we were twins separated at birth. Mel Brook’s work, work, work, work. I thought I was the only one who remembered this.
    Very sorry about the Cain mutiny metaphor or lack thereof.

  2. Tommy–
    I was wondering when you would get around to the Cain Mutiny. Don’t let this ruin your Monday Obsession. We’re already in Bizarro World, so let’s just assume that Superman spun the earth backwards for a couple of days and pretend the announcement hasn’t happened yet. We shouldn’t waste the popcorn just because Cain drove off the tracks again (and hopefully forever).
    But don’t let the “Willard”, the movie, post go too long or he’ll be history too.

  3. OK – post has now been addended to include the FR live thread of the big announcement.
    This is gonna be the longest “Obsession” post EVAR!

  4. Just try to get a head start on the Newt jokes. With luck he’ll be getting out of the race by “Newt Year’s Day”. See, I’m helping already. 😛

  5. Like others said above, please don’t let this discourage your Monday post. There is still so much out there among the Freepers. Now that Newt is becoming the front runner, we’re gonna have to figure out how to make an academic (obviously a bad thing) have the good ole boy appeal of having a beer with Dubya. Who was a good ole boy Texan despite a family fortune combining the Bush fortune with the Pierce fortune and going to a New England prep school. And Newtie and family values. Oh boy. And Newtie and his ties to the political dirty tricks in the South (I’m from Georgia).
    And did you catch Prarie Home Companion making a dig at the politics of MSP but somehow forget the Bachman was from very close by?

  6. If you can quote Brooks, I’ll remind you of the “Love is..” definitions from Love Story:
    Republican candidacy is never having to be vetted. And when caught, never having to say you’re sorry.

  7. I read a lot of misguided information everyday about configurations for Xrumer. The most common being related to Timeout/Maximum Connection settings. I wrote this guide to break some common misconceptions about Scrapebox and help you optimize your network to achieve the greatest potential. I have done my best to write this guide with as little technical jargon as possible. However, this is not a guide to be used lightly. Changes you make here can severely affect the performance of your operating system. It is highly recommended you revert back to your default settings after using Scrapebox.
    By default Windows 7 does a pretty good job at optimizing your network card and TCP/IP settings for normal everyday use. Unfortunately, Scrapebox is not an application that falls into that category. Scrapebox hammers your network connection, router and network card with multiple simultaneous connections at a very fast rate. By default your hardware cannot keep up with the demand necessary to run Scrapebox to it’s highest potential. In this guide you will make the necessary changes to prepare your network for the high demand usage of Scrapebox.
    What this application will do:
    Increase Network Stability and Reliability
    Reduce Network Overhead and Improve Scrapebox Performance
    Optimize your network connection for mass HTTP requests
    Reduce Comment Poster Times while maintaining Success Rate
    Stop your network from throttling your connections
    First lets talk a little about what Xrumer – Scrapebox does and how it affects your connection.
    When Scrapebox begins posting your new Auto Approve list, it instantly opens up multiple connections from your network to the internet. The amount of connections it opens can range from 1 to 500, defined in the SB Maximum Connections settings. Incidentally, if you were to set your SB installation to attempt 500 connections on an unoptimized network you would almost immediately crush your own network. Default settings on home user level hardware cannot withstand 500 outgoing/incoming connections at a constant rate for very long. Most network hardware is designed to immediately block all connections at the first sign of this. It is a built in feature to help protect home users from malicious activity.
    On top of the hardware level, you have limitations in your own Operating System. By default Windows Vista, 7 and Server 2008 disable some resources that we can use to help improve how our network connection handles HTTP Requests, Packet Processing, Memory and CPU management, compression and various other goodies. It is also designed by default to operate optimally for normal network applications. Luckily, Scrapebox is NOT a normal network application. We need to make the necessary changes to accommodate to the needs of this application.
