Server Tweaks -- added security, speed.
« Topic Start: March 12, 2015, 11:50:43 AM »
Just finished making a few changes and updates to The Sock, increasing security as well as performance. The system now monitors itself for bad behavior, and automatically bans any IP that may be doing something it shouldn't by watching for repeated failures. I've also adjusted the forum such that the pages are served almost entirely by NginX - which has a considerably smaller ram footprint, and as such performs quite a bit faster.

Whatever we're paying you, it's not enough.

We should double that figure.
