Man I am tired of this mess. Get up in the morning and before I even have my first cup of coffee, the local computer is booted. Before that cup of coffee from the night before is even nuked, I am checking emails and websites. Before I even get that freshly nuked cup of mud over to my desk, assuming that I do not have to nuke it three or four times, I am manually checking serps for a few website. Sure, I also use automated and online programs to check those serps, but I find enough inaccuracies that I manually check as well. Once this is done, I maybe get to drink that now lukewarm coffee, before I move on to building a few links. However, this morning I did not get to build links. Oh well... maybe by midnight. Anyhow, I have been seeing the success rate in Gscraper drop and determined last night that the majority of my proxies are probably dead and that the keywords need to be altered. So I alter the keywords in a number of URL files and change the email address. After this task is done and before I head back to the microwave to again heat my mostly undrunk coffee, I boot another program and collect a list of 472,000 proxy addresses. While waiting for my coffee to heat, I boot Charon to dedupe that list of proxies. Oh crap.... The beeper just went off on the nuker and I have to go get my coffee - again. I get back to my desk, and while Charon is deduping the list, I smoke my first cigarette of the day (eventually I will get used to and electronic cigarette and be able to give up the real thing but that is another story) that I meant to smoke when I first got up. Charon has finished deduping the list of proxies and so I dump the list to a file and copy it to another program to randomize the list. I then dump the list of 112,000 proxies into Gscraper and begin testing for the proxies it will accept. Maybe in five hours I will be able to begin spamming links - maybe. I close the window to my VPS without logging out and begin checking into a few websites that I am active on so that I can make posts and drop a signature link. Man, there has to be an easier way. Here it is 6 in the evening and I am still testing proxies in Gscraper. I have finished with the forum link dropping, and starting to work on a program I have been working on for a while - a Gscraper clone that has features I would find useful and does not have some of the features that I find irritating. If I ever get the darn thing done, it will be released on this forum and because it is a small part of a larger Statistical intelligence program for ORM that I am working on, the scraper section would be released without cost. What a pain. The larger program is intended to track serps, determine whether a page is positive or negative, and then build links to the positive content and also where needed build human readable web pages. This program is intended to be a purchased product for a personal user and a subscription model for business. Because we will never know the Google, Bing, Yandex, and Baidu algorithms, I had decided to use Bayesean statistical models to make the program self adaptive to algorithmic changes. Those statistical algo's are a pain to code and test, especially the predictive portions. The real hassle here is that even if you are right 100 percent of the time, you are still statistically wrong 20 percent of the time, however Bayesean inference should reduce this error margin down to a more acceptable level. Damn that statistical code. All the while, I am trying to figure out how to broach an idea to the members of this forum that would convince them to let me have use their website and keywords to plug into a Statistical program that costs more than most new cars and has a yearly renewal fee that you could buy a three year old car for to improve the mathematical models for the program I am working on. Humans do things that a computer model would have code strokes trying to figure out. This is proably the same program that our dear American spy agencies use to put all those nasty little tid bits together about out lives. Well Gscraper is about 75 percent finished with that proxy list. Maybe I will be able to spam links in an hour. In he mean time, I have to think about changes to the programs that I am working on because they incorporate elements of several crime kits and I am unsure as to whether it would be a good idea to release that code base. Fortunately, it is easy to alter the project to remove that code. Who said it is easy being sleazy? Note: Deliberately written frivolously, but there are a few questions in the post as well as future intentions.
