# On gopher proxies and search engines (again), hoarders, and gnu screen
ckeen's latest phost replies to kichimi's phost on having his server slammed with traffic. I wrote a phost last year abou
t robots.txt and I believe all proxies should block www crawlers. However, I don't think that's what he's talking about. My
server gets hammered pretty much all the time by hoarders. They either manually or more likely automated, download every file o
n my server. All ~2.5GB or so I have up on RPoD port 70. I toyed with blocking IPs, but it doesn't stop my kids from watching h
ulu, or my wife from streaming vlogs. I understand his chagrin at looking at his logs...
I never used screen back in the day. Only in the past year did I discover tmux. Today, I have decided to drop tmux for screen.
"...but, the code is ugly, and it's outdated." meh. Simple copy+paste, simple reattachment, super availability, serial console
if I want... yes please. So I have decided to be a heretic.
