Website down

Thursday, June 5th, 2014

The website has been down for a month. I was busy and didn’t notice. Reason is explained below.

I have no time for this crap so I just removed the file.

No comments.


I am sorry to inform you that your account has been suspended for creating excessive server load that has affected other customers. The file causing the issue is:


You will either need to remove these files, limit access to them or block some of the IP addresses that are repeatedly accessing these files. Your access logs are located in your stats directory and you can use these to analyse the traffic to your site.

If you find that the traffic is genuine, we recommend moving your website to a Virtual Private Server (VPS).

If the traffic appears to be suspicious, we suggest blocking those suspicious IP’s through an .htaccess file; the ‘.htaccess editor’ tools will allow you do to so. This will allow you to control how much, and what kind of traffic gets to the files in question.

Please let us know the exact steps you have taken to address this issue so that we can then reevaluate the suspension of your account.

KP Release, November 2010

Thursday, November 25th, 2010

Ok, time for a new KP release:

It contains the “Konoko HD” seen in the previous post, the Lara Croft character, tons of bug fixes and new content in the main game (that underground compound now has some 4000 meshes for a total of about 600.000 faces).

It takes me 26 to 28 minutes to “do everything” in the main game, and that’s when I skip all the dialogs and I know exactly what to do in what order. Still far from a real game but a lot better than previous releases. For now the game “ends” when you complete the side mission given by the scientist in the Xenolab (or, depending on what you did, it “ends” when you manage to reach the room directly above the “machine room”). Note that it doesn’t really “end”, you just reach the point where there’s nothing left to see/do in the level.

Stay tuned, there’s much more in the pipeline!

…if only it wouldn’t take years to work on that :)

EDIT: WTF, WTF, WTF! I’m tired of this BS. This probably falls again in the “Globat sucks” category. For some reason the link is broken and I have no idea why. I *did* download that file yesterday to make sure it was working. And today the link is broken. I can see the file in FileZilla, I re-uploaded it, I uploaded it to a different location, and still I can’t access it and I get a 404 trying to download it. WTF I hate internet. Sorry guys I have zero idea what’s going on. Any clue anybody?

Virus: 1 - Pierre: 0

Well. I still have viruses here. The Globat guys don’t bother answering anymore. I’ll drop those clowns ASAP.

Globat is hell

NEVER, EVER sign-up with Globat.

- they have a fucking insane “automatic upgrade program”, meaning they automatically provide you with “useful” upgrades. And charge your credit card for it. Automatically. You are given an option to opt-out if you click on some link in some email they send to you some days before the automatic update. I don’t understand how this can be legal. This is even worse than spam.

- they claim to be virus-free, but my website just got hacked! As a result, all pages from CoderCorner are now marked as potentially dangerous on Google. This is so fucking painful. I cleaned the files and requested a new review, but WTF, like I don’t have anything else to do!

- the spam on this blog is so freaking insane, it drives me mad. Yeah, yeah, maybe it’s not their fault, but still, it makes me happy to pretend it is, just to blame them a little more. I just added a “captcha“, as suggested by a smart reader, and removed the previous moderation options. It should hopefully help.

- unfortunately I lost some comments in the process. (Sorry Geyser, in particular). No clue how it happened, but… yes… I’ll blame Globat for that as well.

NEVER, EVER sign-up with Globat. cialis
