More stupidity from H Wolf, and false allegations.
Posted by: DarkXander at 05-26-2018 22:42 PM
Some of you may have seen some of the somewhat misguided posts by a user known as Wolf, or H Wolf, etc.

He alleged that Pounced is under some kind of investigation for child related offenses, and then alleged that their owner or another staff member was also a moderator on this site, in an attempt to frighten users of this site, as retribution for posting all his harrassing E-Mails towards us publicly.

1. None of the staff of Pounced are, or have ever been involved in admin functions or moderation of furrtrax.

2. Whether they are actually under some mysterious investigation or not is not known to us, and is likely also hot air from him.

3. In yet another E-Mail to me, he seems to insinuate or lightly threaten that the FBI will be reaching out to me, well, I work with them periodically, they have my number, and i have theirs, just talked to them 2 weeks ago. I have even worked with law enforcement several times when incidents of sexual harassment had occurred on the site and provided pertinent information as was necessary. Our track record is spotless.

Now might i direct to wolfs latest E-Mail:
My Response:
If your ever in Arizona send me an E-Mail, ill stand up to ya if you really want it.
But only because you asked nicely

So, since you are but a child, let's go outside and I'll just put you

Are you man enough?

No? Just going to hide behind your keyboard eh?


Tell the FBI I said hello
==============

Back to me again:
At this point im becoming annoyed with this H. Wolf internet tough guy, So on tuesday after the holiday im going to reach out to my own FBI contact, and put all his emails, and the details of this exchange on record, so if he continues to place threats, and harass us, the joke will eventually be on him.

Spotlight: Continued slurs and veiled threats against us!
Posted by: DarkXander at 05-16-2018 01:21 AM
E-Mail was too long to effectively screenshot so im pasting it.
The top section is my reply to him.
1. Saying that we are America First is a slur, Whether you dis-agree or not with that, i dont care. We have members from all around the world, every continent, and they all get along peacefully here other than the occasional spat between peeps.
2. "Assuming you are like other people around me???" Not even sure what your onto there other than perhaps again saying something about Americans.
3. You had the chance to reply courteously and professionally and chose not to, thus you lost my respect. Shock E-Mails don't work on us.
4. You are a resident of La Paz, Mexico, I knew that when i first observed your account.
5. Here again you slur about "gosh, I just realized, are ALL Americans immature trolls?" This is the land of the free, and home of the brave, if you don't like it too bad, I have not discriminated against you, but you have against us.
6. FurrTrax DOES NOT have customers, FurrTrax is a not-for-profit group, we do not charge for ANYTHING! We accept donations if people are willing, we ARE NOT in business. So feel free to threaten to start a competing site, many have and we are still here, and as we do not sell anything, any competition you might someday provide is meaningless to us.
7. Again we are not a business, I am a cyber-security engineer(Certified CCNA, CISSP, Computer Forensics, and Ethical Hacking), and law enforcement contractor day job wise, i make all the money I need, thus i don't need to charge for anything on FurrTrax, it is a community service project, free for everyone.
8. Your better off antagonizing furrymate/bronymate/furfling/others... They are all the same company/guy living in his basement who has also passed threats to us, and even tried to pay us to advertise his site on ours, to which we declined, since we really don't need the money nor would we be connected to their scammy organization in any way. We helped expose their use of fake bot accounts to trick people into paying for accounts as well.
9. As to your disclosure segment, threatening to start your own site essentially, go ahead, do it, wont affect us in the slightest.
10. As for expecting an apology from me, after all you have said, you will be waiting for quite some time, because i have nothing to apologize for.

Xander,

I assume I can speak to you as an adult. Please correct me if I am
wrong and I will address the matter in a more appropriate manner
conducive to your understanding, as you obviously have made gross
assumptions which are surprising to me in their lack of support from
the conversation.

First, I don't have a clue what you mean by slurs, other than possibly
you made a rash assumption based on your own personal experiences and
perspective. I made no insult towards you and nothing was intended to
be implied. Your assumptions about the nature of my humorous comments
about the site's accessibility were grossly misunderstood, likely as a
result of your assuming that I am like other people around you.
Sorry, but I am not an immature furry troll who goes around insulting
people for personal pleasure or out of boredom.3

I am not a resident of your country, something you COULD have and
SHOULD have assumed based on my statements. And as I am not an
American (gosh, I just realized, are ALL Americans immature trolls?) I
am not privy to your perspective, nor do I share it. But as the owner
and operator of a website, I made what should have been a reasonable
assumption, that rather than making rash assumptions that your
customers are all immature furry trolls, you would ask questions as
any business professional would, rather than just assuming the worst
(whatever that worst is, and that is apparently that I'm just another
immature furry troll.)

Having seen your response and perusing the site further, I am met with
a logical explanation for your assumptions: that you are in fact
surrounded by nothing but immature furry trolls, relatively speaking.
(By the way, you do not use an apostrophe to pluralize anything except
all-capitalized abbreviation, so it's not "Story's" it's "Stories" and
it's also "ABC's" although the apostrophe isn't actually necessary as
long as it is lower case according to common use...and in case you
should decide to assume yet again, I am in fact well educated
including in the English language.)

So, I would request an apology from you for your assumptions. I would
also suggest you consider being a bit more curious and concerned when
dealing with customers, because you never know what kind of influence
your customers might have, and what kinds of platforms they have to
wield that influence.

I await your apology. My platforms await my efforts (including
screenshots!) to influence people's decisions on what furry personals'
website to use and which ones not to use because they are run by
pedophiles (Pounced.org), corporate thugs (FurryMate, etc.) or
immature furry trolls...


Kind regards,


Wolf


PS: A little disclosure if it helps: I am attempting to buy or start
a furry personals' ads website because none of the sites I have seen
thus far serve the needs of single furries. In that regard, thank you
kindly for helping me understand why they don't serve the needs of
single furries by further demonstrating that all those sites just
appeal to...immature furry trolls.

DarkXander is now a CISSP
Posted by: DarkXander at 11-15-2017 09:02 AM
For those who are into technology, cyber-security, networking, or other computer related fields, I thought i would drop a note, that i passed the CISSP recently. One of the more challenging tests i've taken, only studied for an hour or so before hand. For those un-familiar with this, the acronym stands for:
Certified Information Systems Security Professional, this makes my 29th certification. Other key certs i hold are Certified Vulnerability Assessor, Secure Coding & Programming, Web Application Penetration Testing, CCNA Routing & Security, A+, Network+, Security+, Linux+ just to name a few.

FurrTrax has migrated to MariaDB
Posted by: DarkXander at 01-16-2017 14:46 PM
For anyone who witnessed the small 2 minute outage a short time ago, it wasnt a malfunction. It was me shutting down the old MySQL DB system and switching FurrTrax to instead connect to the new MariaDB Server. Thus far mariadb has proven to be more robust, and efficient, we have actually seen a 20% increase in site performance since the change.

Site Downtime Today
Posted by: DarkXander at 01-09-2017 20:35 PM
Sorry Guys, Today our Ubuntu MySQL core decided it wanted to do some updates, so i allowed it to do them, only to find out(to my horror), that the ubuntu repository was having some kind of issue, and a couple of the updates blew the server sky high. Upon rescue install it still failed.

So i ended up having to reinstall the MySQL system which is a seperate Virtual Machine inside our cluster, which is why the site appeared online, but with all the information missing. We can thank the Ubuntu gods for this....

No data was lost as i rolled backups right before doing the updates. So right down to the minute it went down, we didnt loose a thing.

Intermittently getting login pages
Posted by: DarkXander at 12-19-2016 15:11 PM
For those intermittently getting login pages for no reason, its due to a very large DDoS that is on a neighboring network to ours hitting someone else, and were intermittently getting some of the blow back from it. its already being mitigated according to the DC staff, but it isnt hitting us, just causing some congestion at a common routing point.

Site Donations Needed
Posted by: DarkXander at 12-11-2016 14:24 PM
Hey guys, just noticed, in the last 60 days, we have only had $18 in donations, but i have paid out $315.82. Now part of that was due to all the domains coming up for renewals which i pay for only once a year. but a good chunk is the Server and CDN Costs. Any help you guys can chip in is always appreciated. And donator perks are negotiable. If there is some unique perk you want for donating, ask us, within reason, we will accomidate it. This cost listed above, does not include the 2 new Processors i just bought for our servers.

FurrTrax Upgrades, Hardware and Software, Big News
Posted by: DarkXander at 12-11-2016 14:08 PM
For those who have experienced the site logging them out suddenly for a minute, or sometimes a little longer, dont fret, this wasnt the system going down. This was me working on things behind the scenes, usually doing a database backup before each change. When i do a backup the database momentarily goes offline to do it, thus everyone gets logged out.

Im pleased to report, the first round of upgrades which were migrating the whole site to a new VM in my cluster with updated apache and php completed with only minor hickups.(had to update a few sections that used php code that was depreciated.)

The second batch, which i completed last night with no hickups, and only a few minutes of downtime was migrating the entire database server to a new seperate VM as well, with the latest MySQL. The new version is noticably faster, and i havent even shifted all the cpu power to it from the old one yet. So it may yet get even a little faster once i fully decommission the old database server(moving some extra files i stored there off it before deleting the whole VM.)

The third batch hasnt happenned yet, but involved firmware updates to the cluster itself hardware wise, and then DUN DUN DUN, the install of 2 new processors into the main server of the cluster. Out will go the 2 x Xeon E5620 i7 Series Quad Cores, And in will go the 2 new Xeon X5650 i7 Series HEX Cores. Thats right the main server will have twin six core cpus. and also of a higher speed per core than the old ones.

These processors cost me a pretty penny and if Anyone can help out via donations it would be a nice Christmas/Hanukkah gift for FurrTrax. Remember we are all donation driven, and we intend to stay that way!

FurrTrax Severs Ties with BlueHost
Posted by: DarkXander at 11-07-2016 15:12 PM
In an effort to improve our CDN reliability, and since its mail systems have long since failed us which was its original function, we have finished migrating away from bluehost completely. We have been having intermittent issues for a while now where the CDN goes offline, stutters horribly, and sometimes would even get its software updated, and all of our settings erased/reset with no warning. We have moved to a new CDN host now.

The website itself is all still run and controlled from Spartan, our main server, but the caching of images, video, css, etc, is all now migrated to the new host and so far its been working well.
