hey there, I wondering if you can run SB on your own PC? Or is it HIGHLY advised I get myself a VPS?
Use it with proxies and you are good.
public or private?
I always run from home. Never had a problem but I ALWAYS use proxies. Public for scraping and private for posting.
As noted you need to make sure you are using proxies. Other than that it really depends on a couple of things. First how many links do you need to build daily and second is your internet connection fast enough to fulfill your needs.
If you have a decent connection and you are not trying to build a huge number of links than you should have no issues using SB at home. The number of connections you can use is going to be less but you can still build a fair number of links daily if you keep it running.
I dont find it a problem using it at home neither, since i use proxies.
HOWEVER, the only problem I have is the crazy amount of bandwidth it consumes.
I dont think my ISP will like it much if I continue doing this....
What about you guys?
Just personal use, and scraping stuff. I'll be using 50mbit uni internet, so i'm pretty sure it wont be too much of an issue.
is there a way to check how much bandwidth SB is using for scraping/blasting?
it says it in the bottom. it gives a current memory usage and a cumulative bandwidth use
