Re: Active Monster Buffer Setting (?)

So your saying 11 times is not faster? Yes it's not as far as a jump processor's have had, but memory hasn't made huge leaps either. And not sure about you but the avg guy in 92 could not afford a 7200 drive, the prices for one of those was fucking crazy. Hell I remember dropping $300 for a 1.7 gig...

Re: Active Monster Buffer Setting (?)

Just for the record, SSD's aside, hard drive speed hasn't changed much in like 20 years. I would disagree here, the bus speeds are a lot faster then they used to be. 20 year's ago we had ata 66 5200 rpm drives with no cache or small amounts of cache on IDE. Now we have 15k rpm with 64m cache on sat...

It's not a command, per say. They part of the paths; ".." means previous directory and a single "." means current directory.

Re: Handy script for cleanup (WGSCLEAN.bat)

The one I posted ( http://www.mudinfo.net/viewtopic.php?p=4336&sid=c626bcc5cec1af13d1f8706c4234b41d#p4336 ) backs up the entire WG folder, minus wccupda2.dat. If I were to be picky and want it in the C:\BACKUP would I simply put "C:\BACKUP\" in place of the "..\_backup"? Tha...

Re: Non SGA connections and general hack nonsense

If you want me to write a script for you I need actual files. A sample audit trail file and sample (working) IP blocking file. When scraping text in files everything matters. Line feeds, character spacing, etc. I can't go by a few redacted lines pasted to a forum. PM me if you're paranoid about publ...

Re: Nightmare request/suggestion

You should be able to go from NMR -> Access DB -> To whatever as there are a million tools out there to manipulate data from an Access DB. Which I'm pretty sure is all the other person did.
