My new retrocomputer project

So even before I was into the whole UO thing, I was heavily into retrocomputers (really back then they weren't even "retro" lol).  In recent years that has kinda turned into my full-time hobby.  I noticed that I was doing a bunch of things that other people might benefit from my findings and experiences.  So I created a new website/forum that talks about anything retrocomputer-related.

https://retroactivity.net

I don't really mean to duplicated the great works of places like atariage, since this is really going to be a repository for my own work.  But as I found with scriptuo.com, people appreciated that and added to the whole experience.  So I figured, "what the hell."

Yes, SMF because easy.  I didn't want to have to think too much about it.  There's better forum software out there, but with those come additional annoyances.  So I'll stick with what I know.

So if you have any love for the old computer, come stop by and say "HI".

I tried to register over there, but alas: no go!

Was greeted with:
"Not Acceptable!
An appropriate representation of the requested resource could not be found on this server. This error was generated by Mod_Security."

I know you have talked about some of these hobby projects before here. I don't have anything too old myself, but I have probably used some of the stuff you showed in the past.
"Go ahead ask me: 'Should I use hard waits or timers?'"
You say:"Should I"
Gaderian:"Timers!"
You Say:"use hard waits or timers?"

The serious side of timer use is illustrated here: http://www.scriptuo.com/index.php?topic=12094.msg101926#msg101926

However, every time I go back and look at this [AutoLooter] script, I realize I had wrote it in my zen state of EUO scripting - so it makes my brain hurt.

Kewl, I'll see what's up with that.  Thanks for checking!

Ok, I ended up turning reCaptcha off and was able to create a normal account.  So hopefully that was it.  I'll fiddle with getting that set up at a later date.

Something else is odd since Gad was able to register.  Strange.  I'll keep poking at it.  Thanks for checking.

Gaderian said he also had to turn off his vpn to register.  I didn't, but there's that.

Also, https is turned on so perhaps point the the site using https://retroactivity.net

Yep that is it.  I could view main site without https.  Once i tried to do anything it required HTTPS
