Re: Weekly DC Stats scripts

What do you mean by "doing this manually"? The BB code which the script inserts into the RC5-72 output has always been sufficient for me to suppress the anandtech.com board's subsequent automatic linking.

Bonus stats! This script works much like the main script for TeAm AnandTech's stats, except for team Ukraine. There are no Folding@home stats or RC5-72 stats provided here.

Re: Feed Bot Issues

Every now and then the feed bot is blocked by iThena. (Most of the time iThena does respond, but eventually it doesn't and then the bot needs manual intervention to get going again.) So I would rather like to leave the two iThena newsfeeds disabled for now.

The downtime was from February 14 ~0600UTC to February 16 ~0600 UTC.
However, the project was not brought back up correctly yet:

It looks as if only newly attached computers have issues, not ones which were attached before the downtime.
