Site status update: https://bbw-chan.nl/gen/res/3663.html | Please split MAB uploads to less than 2GB: it's difficult for the machine spirit to archive content when restricted to 'free' bandwidth.

UPDATE 6/21: mining requirement has been removed.

See a link you want but it's expired? Check the array! Most content posted to the board gets saved to the array so it's available after it expires from MAB. People don't take kindly to asking for re-ups of files that are available on the array. For those not familiar with IRC, it's quite simple. Use the web client link under the news page link on the sidebar, choose a nickname (or use the default generated one), enter #FODarray as the channel name, then connect. Type FODHELP for a detailed explanation of all the commands available. No !, /, or # prefixes are required for any commands. You may post any issues or comments about the array here. Here's a visual guide to using the array, if you need a little more explanation: http://i.imgur.com/mjx76NZ.png

The array isn't really for chatting though, wanna chat with the community? BBW-Chan's IRC channel is #bbw-chan on irc.rizon.net.

Alright, look, I'll admit I went a little off the deep end. I have an irrational hatred for Apple products. All I've ever seen are elitist pricks who assume higher price means better performance and are perfectly fine charging their mice upside down and having a dongle daisy chain hanging off their laptops.

Here's a personal experience: an executive at my company sees someone using outlook on their ipad. He gets all hot and bothered that this lady looks like she stepped right out of startrek and he's lugging around some MASSIVE, UGLY, TERRIBLE, OLD Dell E7270. So without going through the approved procurement process, he goes out, buys an ipad and a keyboard case and a mouse.

Comes back to the office, and demands we replace his laptop with it. He says he wants to hook it up to his dual monitor display and use the ipad as a third screen, and that he wants to use this sweet, buttonless mouse with it. He couldn't understand when we explained to him, sorry sir: Apple doesn't let you use mice on ipads, there's no ipad dock that exists that can utilize dual monitors, and to boot, our encryption and asset management software doesn't work on them.

Maybe, just maybe, there was a time when things "exclusive" to the IOS ecosystem were desirable, but I've always felt it's the walled-in OS alternative for people who aren't smart enough to use linux but want to be "different". There's nothing compelling about the UI, their specs, or anything anymore. I will say their phones are decent. Everything else, wtf.

It's also true I don't take criticism and complaining very well. I spend at least a third of my free time maintaining the site, archiving content, fixing code problems… and there are certainly days when I regret it. On top of that (pity party) I've had horrible debilitating back pain for 5-ish years and I am aware I'm on a hair trigger most of the time. It's just become my default behavior because the pain is 24/7 and I'm, on a good day, always moderately frustrated about it.

So there are some days that I'm desperate to see some of those "hey thanks barclay, this is really sweet" posts but all I seem to see are people with problems they want solved.

So I apologize. It's been a rough few months.

> Long text.

2/3 of it explains the program for people who wouldn't understand a purely technical description, so of course it's long.

I'm not sure if I can help you with writing the code for the bridge right now, since I'm really busy.
How would I contact you for that anyways? Is there anything that doesn't require me to create wasted accounts on dubious sites?
Alternatively you could also just set up a IRC bouncer finally.

>>188
Thanks! It truly only becomes useful currently if you know how to use your terminal correctly.
You should get familar with PowerShell or even better "Bash on Windows" if possible to use it in it's current state.

I plan on automating all of that away though by adding the necessary code to download the files themselves as well instead of printing out the links.
The correct choice would be for me to write a jDownloader plugin though since that would be result in a much more versatile solution.
But then again I wouldn't have any fun writing the code in Rust… Hmm…

I need some help. The list A of the array isn't working for me. I am trying to download some Marilyn vids and it keeps downloading Mara Jane vids.

Like I went to download Marilyn sets 103 which is 4509 in the list but it downloaded Mara Jane weigh in which is 4218. I am very confused

So wait, let me just wrap my head around this. You had the wherewithal to read the explanation, understand it enough to make upload requests, but, when it came to the part where it said "enter the channel, click the lists from the topic" you thought to yourself "screw that, I'm going to TYPE OUT the database link from the explanation (since I can't copy and paste it), and use THAT link."

Nah, I'm not buying it. No one is that stupid. That's going out of your way to troll me. Bravo.

What do you mean by that? Are you implying that the image should read "the median person"?
If so it's quite correct, but still makes you sound like a smartass, since everyone already knew what was meant by the more common and preferable word "average".
The intelligence of humanity follows very closely the normal distribution though, which means that median and average are identical anyways, so uh… yeah…

>The intelligence of humanity follows very closely the normal distribution though,


If you're referring to IQ scores, that's meaningless since IQ is carefully designed to follow a normal distribution. For example, at https://magoosh.com/mat/miller-analogies-test-raw-score-percentile/ you can see how MAT raw scores are heavily adjusted to produce a normal distribution. It's similar for the other IQ tests. The point is that the claim in the image won't be true for the intuitive concept of "average intelligence".

By the way I'm just going out of my way to troll Barclay (not the guy asking for help).

looking back at this and other threads, there might be a few other factors involved. sometimes it seems, whatever you do, there's always someone trying to pull your nerves.

2 cents: ltbarclay has been more than generous, spending huge amounts of time and work on saving and improving this site. it's just not right that in return, he and his crew has to deal with all this demotivational c*ap…

cbe97 No.211

Take a bow son! You explained the situation well. It got to the last tether for me when someone was like "aww forh tha lawve of gawwd itsa neeeeeww boberry set, sum 1 betta go buy it we need it nowww"
Its as if the internet had ust reduced everyones common courtesy and common sense.

I have one idea that might work. As much as the arrsy is easy to use and there are some lazy people, if we could streamline it as much as we can, we might be able to attract more regular traffic, and reaching the server payment would be more… accessible, perhaps.

Some volunteers could be renaming the files and ordering them into a well organised fashion. Requests for new content could be strictly to one section of the site with lists of whats needeed without any bumpfags fucking it up.

It would be such a shame to waste so much of a good system with better potential, i just wish some idiots would remind themselves about common sense and manners, ffs.

Peace out

My offer to run "the array" is still up with a dedicated server (2x3TB Raid, 200MBit/s bandwidth, 20TB bandwidth per month) for free forever.
It just seems to be an impossible feat to get a hold of LtBarcley to talk about this in IRC. :(

As a last resort I'll simply mirror my own private archive of ~600GB and provide a bot similar to LtBarcley's here.

Prob very off-topic but I'm just getting into this programming lark and was wondering… how is the array built? I assume there's a database and something that takes messages as inputs but I'm very curious as to the architecture behind it. Really cool build for a real world problem and such a shame that I can't show it off. If you're out there, you're much appreciated mate.

Why is it that the stuffer31 videos aren't sorted by model? I've uploaded some of them to mab myself, and I know I labeled them when I did so.
Also, I found a ChubbyGirlVideo video in the stuffer31 folder, how would I report something being in the wrong folder?

0adb8 No.219

>>214
I'll admit I haven't been completely forthcoming with information about the array shutting down. I am very torn about what to do with it. I'll try and get my thoughts together soon.

>>217
Once I make the current code a little more pretty/resilient, it will be released. Until then, the array runs on AutoIT with an IRC UDF back-end. There are plenty of examples, and although AutoIt will get you laughed out of programmer circles, for projects like this, it's ideal for it's simplicity.

>>218
100% honest here: most of the stuffer31 chicks are too small for my taste and I have no idea who they are because their names aren't on the file or in the video itself. If someone wanted to go through them all and correctly rename them, I'll certainly go back and get them sorted.

394fe No.220

>>219
Ok, I'll see if I can sort through them sometime. In the meantime, the videos in line B6053, B6054, B6055, B6056, B6057, B6058, as well as B6061 are not Stuffer31 videos but from ChubbyGirlVideos. Except for B6061, most are in the ChubbyGirlVideos folder already, so you have some duplicates. Idk if it's more convenient for you if I use line numbers or names, so I'll say that the videos are titled video 59.mp4, video 69.mp4, etc., and Stuffer31\WIN_20151030_13_56_41_Pro.mp4.mp4

More than likely, yes. i may work out some kind of system where the array will automatically come online if the balance of it's mining pool goes over a certain amount and shuts off when the balance is low, we'll see.

how much would you need to not shut it down

f1746 No.231

>>230
Here''s the deal. I always envisioned that if the array was popular enough, enough individual users would come together and support it enough to pay its monthly costs. As we've seen through the failure of the faucet system, the link shortener system, and the mining system, this isn't the case: the best we can hope for is direct donations from a very small amount of dedicated / supportive users.

With that said, there's also the issue of me kind of wanting the array to die. It takes alot of effort to run, and to be frank, its ruined the chan. Threads get shitted up with people arguing about asking for reups, and less content is posted overall as people get their fix not from new posts, but from interacting with the array.

So here's an unlikely to happen compromise I'll agree to. If we receive 1 years worth of operating costs for the array ($20 x 12 = $240 or 0.1 bitcoin) by the array's 1 year birthday (7/25), I will pledge to keep the array online for another year, 24/7 like it has been. These donations MUST come with a message stating the donation is SPECIFICALLY for the array, not the site. So either include it in the transaction itself, or post to this thread with your donation amount and state it was for the array.

If we don't make it I will still bring the array online periodically for weekends / holidays / etc, but it will no longer be 24/7.

0787f No.232

No argument here, although I'm curious: why didn't the mining system work?

3622e No.233

I kind of like the holiday or occasional weekend/etc idea. It'll probably get clogged by a bit of a backlog, but I mostly only ever used the array rarely to grab a stash of models I liked. Having it up 24/7 seems pretty niche.

d3a06 No.234

>>233
Agree with this. An alternative would be to make mining required during all other times that aren't week-end/holidays but that'd only work if there's enough revenue generated by the small amount of people who would comply with the mine to use requirement to make it cost effective

8c10b No.235

>>232
Lots of reasons I think. One being the wide spectrum of devices being used on the array, the other being the array was already technical, when you add something like mining on top most people just throw up their hands.

Thread has been de-stickied and saged, and the array is offline until further notice.
