Re: Blacklist Filter update script

I would be fine with keeping the service alive. Having a 48u rack for such a piss easy and small script is a bit outrageous. I think you're the delusional one. I"m sure you used that rack for way more than this script. I'm simply saying you can keep the script stuff online for way cheaper if you wa...

It's been a nice run. Almost 3 years, and over 2200 active users. But I am shutting down the this service. With the new US tax laws and this new US "sex trafficking law" (which isn't really about sex trafficking) I simply can't afford to keep the service running. Bandwidth and rack space is just to...

Re: Blacklist Filter update script

Love the work you did on this script. It's fantastic! however I too am finding a few services are blocked. Microsoft for one, Periscope (A Twitter company) is blocked. I'm currently deciding if its worse the hassle :)

But you did do a fantastic job, great service, I thank you much for it!

I too have noticed, having a proper firewall setup blocking all and allowing certain traffic makes UPnP useless.

We must not be thinking the same thing for sure. My definition of a firewall involves outside traffic coming INTO my network (through the firewall..)
