Re: TH F@H Milestones: 15 Oct 2012

Technically it was a violation of the rules (which may have been established well after the program was written), but since the program was only used once per day and by only one member of the team it did not cause any real harm.

The reason behind prohibiting access to the dynamic pages from computer programs is that those may access the stats server very frequently (faster then a real user would) at which point it becomes a big performance problem.

There was monitoring in place to detect abuse and the fact that it was working until now shows that use by our team was not abusive in nature.

Like sortofageek See Profile I was thinking the program used the static team page for its data.

Unfortunately it seems that vspx27 has been retired now so we need to adopt. We will have Team Helix milestones back up and running soon.

Yeah, I saw that it was indeed a violation, apparently the result from a DOS attack many moons ago.

I am surprised we got to use it this long, without being banned, or someone scolding us.

Now for the thousand dollar question.

Can you write a patch to the "correct" server to grab the 'stones?

He can't patch the script Fishie did for us because we never got the source code. What he is doing is trying to find the time to finish the newer script he is working on for us and that will have the correct URL.
