[TiT] That’s It Tuesday – Issue 25


Tit bird
Hi underground visitors! Welcome to the twenty-fifth issue of TIT, or That’s It Tuesday! Every Tuesday, I, Versatile1, will give you a rant of whats going on in the blog, whats intended for the future, hope, dreams, etc.

Last week I dabbled into the war between Afterdawn user versus Underground Writer? Basically what happened was one of my PS2 tutorials was plagiarized (including pictures) with no credit given to the Underground. Yesterday MusicMasteria backed me up and wrote a post on what to do about content theft and how to combat it.

Although these are good ideas, I still want to take revenge on my enemy or enemies. What shall I do? After this writing, I’m going to change the hotlinked pictures to something NSFW. Oh I can’t wait!

Yesterday I was bought a Linksys WRT54G wireless router from Craigslist for $25, and I made it into a wireless bridge using linux firmware known as DD-WRT. It works great for hooking up my HTPC and Xbox online without having to buy separate adapters.

If interested, I can write a tutorial about this, or you can read more about it here at Lifehacker: http://lifehacker.com/368094/wire-your-living-room-over-wi+fi-with-a-bridge

Spring is here, and I will be doing some cleaning here on the blog from time to time. We got a strong anti-spam filter in place, and those people marked as spam I’m putting you into the filter. Rapidshare posts or AWsurveys after 3/17/08 without the phrase “I am not a frickin’ bot” will be marked as spam instantly. Muauahah. 🙂

Other than that, last week Friday we had author TVDenimChap write up Rockin’ Friday, and it frickin’ rocks! Can’t wait for this week’s edition. See you guys next time, and be on the watchout for the Afterdawn comback.

[Update:  Turns out I can’t edit the hotlinked pictures.  Either I let them remain or I delete them.  I ended up deleting them, and I added a new post to afterdawn saying you just got pwnt for hotlinking.  The new tutorial now has watermark to it.]

  1. Good for you. I might make a post depending on the mood.

  2. You said you cant change the hotlinked pics? Where are they uploaded at? You should be able to, or just delete and upload a porn pic with the same name? On some of my other sites I have done stuff like that, its fun to do.

    For a spam filter you should do question verification, for example “Type the second word= asdsicz zsckedj sdiekc skdiek” then the user types in zsckedj, have it randomize, kinda like how I did on my registration to my site above…It cut my spam registrations from like 80 a day to 0. I get a few humans that post the spam but its much easier to deal with now.

  3. Sorry for the double post but i just looked at the post you were talking about here:
    http://forums.afterdawn.com/thread_view.cfm/3/444613#3856718
    And I looked at the pics and it looks like you would just need to go to the date based directory where your files are kept and just upload a porn pic with the same name as that one? Maybe I dont quite understand WP??

  4. Hello Mike. Originally I had thought I can change the hotlink pictures, but since I am using free WP, I cannot go into the specific date based directory and do a swap of the file.

    If I could, I would! So the only alternatives I had was either delete the files, or let them be.

    I decided to delete the files and have the guys post broken. 😛

  5. Is it just me or are his pictures back with the same link…
    I’m looking at the tutorial and his pictures are no longer broken. I checked the source link and it’s still the same as before… didn’t you delete the old pictures? lol my computer must be going crazy or something

  6. Pictures are definitely gone. Clear your cache.
