We have loads of disturbances here as well.

The thing that I'm annoys me most about it is that the taskbar icon says I'm connected, but when I try to access the internet, it doesn't work. I'm not surprised that it went down, thanks to the heat we've been having this past week.

Right, but you're used to it. It's worse when it's working fine for months on end and then starts f*cking around all of a sudden.

Touch Harley. Over here we used to get hourly power outages not 2 years ago and back then it felt like nothing happened at times due to the fact we were so used to it. Power outages never take place anymore but I can imagine how I would feel if things started to be like before. I guess the same theory applies here.

@Valenta

It's from your Internet Service Provider I presume. Not sure why it says it's connected though.

The last time this happened, they said it was maintenance and it would be back up in 2 hours. 6 hours later and it still wasn't back online. We phoned them again and it turned out to be a fault and it would be even longer until service was restored. They then said that it was our router which was at fault and it would be two days before they could send a engineer out. My dad was not in the least bit pleased when he heard that. Within the hour, the connection was restored after some strong language was issued.

Wow, GTAKid667 has made 205 posts in a single day.

Talk about posting a lot, if he continues at this pace he'll reach 1000 posts (He already has but you get my point) in 5 days, 2000 in 10 and 10000 posts in 50 days.

The only person I know who has higher is faizanali.

He ain't spamming he's a good guy but he should slow down.

Also if he was a new member his ppd would be at 205 posts per day.

I know, dont worry though, I don't usually post that much. In fact it took me 2 Years to get 500 Posts so that is the first day I have ever made so many posts, people have done more than me though, Im not going to continue doing that sort of number every day but really, it didnt feel like I had done so many blush.gif

Had the same issue myself for the sake of not mentioning the name it was the broadband from Yorkshire lot, they were doing all the usual "it's your fault you must be doing something wrong have you tried switching off and on again" etc etc etc, which was pointless in doing as I knew it was at their end. After a couple of weeks of this uselessness, wasting sh*t loads of time and money on calls, they sent an engineer out and lo and behold the day before he came out it actually starting working properly again, then engineer came around and said "I don't know what I'm doing here we knew what the problem was and they (the ISP) knew about it" facedesk.gif .

The cards in the exchange were overheating and as a result were resetting, so they were trying to narrow down which cards were doing so, so they could replace them, what p*ssed me off the most was is that they (the Yorkies) knew about it and had me chasing my tail, for their amusement over something I knew was at their end.

No wonder Jaffa Oranges are seedless.

You clearly weren't around in the Mati days. There was a period when he was in the top of the "Today's Top 10 Posters" several days. He wasn't spamming neither, but he was posting a f*cking lot, especially in the GTA V forum.

But as some said, if it's not spamming, it shouldn't be judged. tounge.gif

Well, at least his posts aren't pure spam. They are average.

I never made that many posts in one day. The highest I ever managed within a day was probably 100 posts, and that was in the summer of last year. And I was lifeless enough to post around 50 times a day for three weeks or so straight, which means I made more than a thousand posts in a month. Back then, I didn't even bother going outside of the V forum. I can not imagine doing that ever again. Good times though. tounge.gif

Why should he slow down if he isn't spamming?

Because some idiots might consider him a spammer by just looking at the number. Remember ZoomZoom? He never spammed he posted a lot but everyone still thought he was a spammer by looking at this PPD.

@CCJBB: Yeah good days, however the maximum I've achieved is about 50 I guess. inlove.gif
@miro: Do you know of a guy called mxyzptlk? He made 12K posts in a year at a ppd of 40 posts per day. Even now when he is inactive for years his ppd is at 4.

By golly wow.gif that's so many posts alone in a day. Were almost the same actually, the highest posts I attained is nearly 50+ posts and that was summer last April. If it ain't spamming, continue, at least it's decent posts after all. icon14.gif

Actually, the list continues on the second page, but it was in the middle of the night and I'm surprised that I even had the ambition to make the screenshot I have shown above. Just take a look at the GTA Liberty City Stories sub-forum, it still looks pretty much the same...

Now he hardly posts these days, dunno why he changed.

He changed his account. Now he's Technique. He most probably wanted to split up with his old account with so many posts, and have a new start, since he didn't tell many people about his new name. I also think he got sick of the "Mati" name and wanted to change it.

@Ace Kingston and Extreme Limitations - Thanks guys icon14.gif

I was only here in Mati's last few days (Being inactive from 2010, I came back late 2012). His posts were everywhere and it is strange thinking how someone can post that much, especially with flood control that I was complaining about. And @miromiro I don't know why he would want to start fresh, unless he was considered a spammer confused.gif

Whilst your posts aren't exactly spam, most of them aren't really worth posting. If you aren't going to post anything provocative or at all interesting, or even something people can reply to, what's the point?

I can't do pointless posts all day because of that reason, what's the point if there is no discussion? It's like talking to someone who doesn't respond at all, shortly you get tired of it and just stop bothering.

I remember reading about it in the Multiplay Monitor - Issue #56 (the download / view links are dead) and that when I saw it. I also sent him a Personal Message on May 13th, 2013 regarding why he's hiding himself behind the new account, and told me this:
