Yup... I am also investigating SSL at the moment. Considering moving it to external hosting...

A the ripping website subject. Main reason why I have the downloads behind a timer on the website.
Some people hate the timer and the possible ad showing up, I've choosen for this option, since the website has over 1,5Gb of downloads in it's repository, got sick of these leechers which made the bandwidth usage spike, had a few months 35-40GB of bandwidth was used, so I moved on taking countermeasures, since banning just an IP address is not an solution.

I'm using a PHP download manager script, so there are no direct links to my downloadable files to prevent leeching. It's quite effective. Right now my site(s) generates 30~40Gb traffic a month, but since I've got a 5Tb limit there is no need to block leechers. I do auto-block users that tries to brute-force my webservices using Fail2Ban. I choose to do a permanent IP ban. Mainly those are Russian, Chinese and Brazilian IP's

Funny how no-one complains about 'gamestats' now. Running Naked in a Field of Flowers

Have there been complaints about that? I just do this to spam my site of course Wink but besides that, I am just a stats-nerd. When I bought solarpanels for my house, I spent quite some extra money to be able to log each panel and to get more data which I could store in graphs, etc Smile
For this reason I also installed Google Analytics on File-Hunter.com recently. Quite funny what kind of information you can get from it. Of course you have all the standard stuff like country, provider, language, browser, os stuff, etc... But also a lot of demographics like gender, age, interests, how long people stay on certain pages, etc... quite interesting stuff actually.

Many years ago, snout suggested gamestats, based on emulator usage. Purely because of stats, just to see which games would be the most popular ones. Well, this suggestion was followed by a shitstorm of conspiracies, including assumed bad-asses hacking openmsx executables and 'activating' such a feature and spreading that version. The idea was never heard of again. And now you're doing nearly the same thing, and everyone appears to be fine with it. That's funny. Wink

I guess it's different when you have analytics like that in an executable running inside your PC. It can potentially access lots of personal files and data, and that would be quite easy for a bad-intentioned coder to add malicious stuff starting from the openMSX code if everything is already in place to send data over internet...

Doing analytics from an internet connection only takes data that you are sending, everybody's kind of used to that today. (not saying I like that but you can use counter-measures). I don't mind for your site tfh, as long as you don't black-mail me for having played Starship Rendez-vous Smile)

LOL.. My guess is that we have a large number of techies/nerds on this site, since a lot of us started programming in some form on the MSX when we were young. (Google Analytics on my site confirms this...)

And it's already been a couple of times that Nemesis 1 comes on top. That's weird, since I feel that Nemesis 2/3 or Salamander were superior to the original Smile

That's probably due to the special release recently... Have you tried it?
