Alright, just a quick post today, as I’m running late because I spent Saturday doing homework and Sunday in San Antonio with my family. Next week I’ll make up for it with something cool. Hopefully.
Regardless, as a few people know, I run an open web proxy. It’s pretty effective, and a lot of people use it, so I keep it maintained (UPDATE 2017: It’s not around anymore).
But recently I noticed that a large (>80%) amount of visits are to assorted porn sites. Not that there’s anything wrong with porn. I don’t mind providing others stuck behind intrusive firewalls a means to watch porn to their heart’s content. That said, here’s a graph of all of the traffic through my proxy since September 8th (a 15-day interval):
The IP addresses have been removed to protect people’s privacy. I know I wouldn’t want my browsing history splashed around on the internet.
The numbers going down the right are in bytes. The #1 user used over 1GB within 15 days, half of which was Asian porn and the other half was Mortal Kombat-related. My Mom was complaining about how the home phone, which is voice over IP, was really slow and poor quality.
I didn’t have the heart to tell her it was so that some guy in Indonesia could watch porn at work.
Anyway, that’s what’s taken up my time for the past few minutes. There’s a lot of data here, going back to early 2012. If you have any suggestions on what to do with the data then please, Contact Me. I’m mildly at a loss. But I’ll come up with something.
On a tangentially related note, I’m interviewing for a job on Tuesday (which is tomorrow, I guess…), so after Tuesday hopefully I’ll have some cool stuff to say. If they hire me then I’ll put a cool little blurb about what they/I do. If not then I won’t. If they don’t hire me, I’ll probably post with any cool graphs that I generated from my web server data.
Or I’ll post with cool stuff that was built with JEE. The company I’m interviewing for wants “…experience with Java and JEE.” Last Friday I had none.
Today I’ve written a cute little websocket chat server application.
And, to wrap things up, check out BYUTelevision’s Studio C on YouTube. Because they’re hilarious. Finally, to all of those people who are waiting for an email from me (which can take years), get really oddly worded emails from me, or get really lousy love letters from me, here’s my apology:
Have a good week, y’all.
