    a very long time ago when i ran cobalt raq servers, a friend of mine setup a script and put it to cron, every night, it would run and do a search for all files with .zip .exe .mp3 etc...sorta a easy way to find illigal content on your server.

    we are no longer in contact and dont have any clue on resetting something like this up...suggestions?

    I wrote a script for your last issue, it will be released very soon. It basically monitor\'s the queue and will let you know if their are bad address\'s in their or will let you know if the queue gets too large. Of course you can set limits. I\'m beta testing it now.

    Just just gave me another idea for a script to write. This will be a easy one.

    It\'s easy to rename those files to .blah or .rar and then just rename them. Most sites tell you to rename them to the proper extention. I think a better solution would be to find files larger than 2 mb or so.

    If its a multi file program, thats been split up by something like Winrar, or WinAce, they files will be exactly 2mb, acording to warez \"standard\"...

    blah blah blah.... their will allways be ways around this kind of stuff. But you might as well have a simple script running to catch the not so smart people. Or at least to catch them the first time and then to watch them.

    well you would be amazed by the amount of mp3\'s we have on our servers, a simple script that i spoke of is very basic and does the job :)

    it did it back in then, dont see why it wouldnt work now

    alot of things come in to play too now, you have bandwidth monitoring at the click of the button, mrtg stats etc....alot more then what you had back then...
