Just a little update:

Right now we've barely touched on the client-side portion of it, and are going to wait for the development of the server until we have the API completely layed out. You can check out the SourceForge project here. Note that right now there isn't anything in the SVN repository as we're still ironing out a few access issues regarding it.

I have updated the starter to reflect more on whats going on :)

Here is what the spam serer will probably be running on (ultimately, when the project is finished)

Dual-core Intel® Itanium® 2
(1.6 GHz)
Intel Itanium 2 (1.6 GHz)

Running RedHat

512GB Memory

1GB RAM

Bandwidth peak 276 GB

EDIT - Realised I gave the network tier, not the data centre tier, so now theres both :P
Tier 4 Data centre, Tier 1 Network

It may just be a partion, As all those resources would be mega wasted just on a spam server :P

All MOD downloads should be back now - Sorry for that and serious lack of support! - If anyone wants to take over or help with any of my MODs the offer would be apreciated as I have little time for phpBB Modding recently!

Again very sorry for not supporting these MODs recently.

...I'd say that should more than cut it.

I want to watch this, if only for the sexy SIP-like functionality that I envision this to be. Long live SIP!

Sorry if this is a dumb question, but what is SIP? :oops:

Having a bit of a discussion in Mod Writers at the moment about if we should scrap using HTTP and use our own protocol... So far we havn't done much, so it wouldn't make a massive difference I guess!

SIP is Session Initiation Protocol. It is a rather common (and in my opinion one of the better) protocol used in VoIP. Take this SIP address for example:

micheal@bob.home.lan

If you were on my local network and setup on my VoIP server, that's how you would reach me. Of course, if I had it setup to POTS, you could call me from anywhere, but this is offtopic :P

Take this IAX example (another VoIP protocol, which is Inter-Asterisk eXchange):

micheal@bob.home.lan/home

What you suggested above is more IAX than SIP I suppose, but kind of a combination of both. I personally prefer SIP over IAX since IAX (pronounced eeks), is created for Asterisk and it isn't widely available on other VoIP platforms, along with other problems, but SIP has its own problems with NAT traversal is such, but eh, you get the idea. Not to mention offtopic again. :P

I think this could be really interesting. If I had time, I'd offer to help, but I really don't. :(

Personally, if it's OK with Chris, I'd prefer to go ahead with SIP as opposed to IAX. For one, how many people have more than one board per domain, and two, it'd simplify things a bit.

Actually SIP and IAX are meant for voice only (with RTSP taking up the video). :) I'd stick with HTTP. But the reason I mentioned SIP is because of the high-level perspective (and I wub dabbling with VoIP) that was offered.

I meant the addressing concept, not actual implementation ;)

i can think of a fair few who have multiple boards on one domain, thats why I am going for the @phpbb.com/community approach...

We should start a club, I have had to write everything down as I'm doing it, and what I plan to do as I keep forgetting today :lol:

And the whole Protocol thing is making me burn up :P

We decided to go back to square one with this.

We have a plan on paper, which has basicily everything we need, we just need to write it now :)

It has also come to my attention that you will need to have CURL extension installed so that your board is secure (we can use SSL)

I hope to have this release by maybe 10th July? But I will not promise anything, done when done :)
