I don't think he mentioned you after I made the change.

Mike

Then I think we're good for both quotes and mentions.

Bob.

LOL, you laugh now, but I guarantee now that this bug has been fixed and people start getting the mention and quote emails from users other than me, someone is going to want to turn it off.

But I confirm that turning it off works in UserCP, because I have it disabled and am still not receiving any emails after my patch.

Hehe, that's always a good idea but doesn't prevent my email inbox from running full.

The Stocks and ETF topic is flooded with topics for stock symbols with only one chart in it, like this topic:

Is that a new change for futures.io (formerly BMT)? If so, I don't like it. Those are not the high quality topics that made futures.io (formerly BMT) popular; it's more like StockTwits now.

I've enabled URL links in signatures for Elite Members.

@bd92154 @iqgod @PandaWarrior or others, please let me know if it works. You'll need to update your signature.

Please note, URL's may only link to futures.io (formerly BMT) content. No external URL's will be allowed.

The plan has always been to diversify futures.io (formerly BMT) so it's not just futures. Another member decided to create a lot of new topics for the SP500 or NAS100 and I support that move, and so far it has increased participation of stock discussion which is a good thing.

These threads were created to allow places to post news and other info as members find them. It started because I wanted to post some news about different stocks and realized they didn't have a thread. So I added most of the NAS100 (still lacking a few). These threads are open to anyone who wants to share ideas or news for the different stocks and companies.

I agree with Mike trading is more then futures.

SSLv3 disabled due to the new POODLE attack vector. Forcing to TLS 1.0, 1.1, 1.2.

This should not impact anyone.

Just a quick note/update that IQFeed has enhanced their futures.io (formerly BMT) Elite Partnership program.



Elite Members can now receive a 50% discount off the first 3-months or 20% off an annual subscription, both with no setup fee, to DTN IQfeed. This is for new DTN customers only.

You'll need this special link to take advantage:
https://futures.io/elite_membership/

Note: Big Mike Trading does NOT receive compensation for these referrals, we simply worked out these special deals to help our Elite Members who have chosen to support the site. Even though we believe these are great products and services, you should always do your own research before doing business with a company.

While I was on vacation we had a raid drive failure on the primary futures.io (formerly BMT) server. I wasn't aware of it due to the issues I had remotely accessing futures.io (formerly BMT) email. Drive is being overnighted and scheduled for replacement tomorrow evening, should be no impact.

Site was down for approximately 9 hours last night due to running out of space on the log drive.

I've resolved the issue for now and apologize for the down time. I was asleep...

Me too.

My favorite Big Mike rug was whisked away by cyberspace and the floor caved in.

Felt unbearable, like, I would have to face the offline world alone for a few days.

Yep I noticed it too and missed it.

It may not be the best way to put in a first post of sorts, but wanted to chip in anyway and let you know that there are 'others' like me out there reading away the valuable words on this forum, at all hours you could possibly think of!

Bravo!

Important security patch applied to futures.io (formerly BMT) server. Later tonight I'll need to reboot the server, there will be about 15 minutes downtime when that happens.

I still see the problem Mike, when the post is on another page it goes to a page, the top post, but the quoted post isn't actually on that page.

(and btw, I do have mentions enabled just missed this one and the other)

Can you give me the post # where a post is quoted, and you click the quoted link and it is wrong? I'll try some more testing.

Yup, confirmed. The #post<xxx> bookmark value is wrong, as is the page number. I'll keep trying. Unfortunately, all of the software is EOL and not supported, so it might just be due to the size of the thread or something that I won't be able to solve.

Sorry for the last 50 minutes of down time.

The primary futures.io (formerly BMT) server rebooted for an unknown reason, and when it restarted, the SQL server wasn't running (another unknown reason).

Unfortunately, during this exact time, my primary internet in Ecuador also failed, and my backup internet was also not working, all at the same time. So I didn't have an easy way to SSH into futures.io (formerly BMT) server to restart the service until now.

Did I mention I was carrying nearly a 40 lot into the close when my internet dropped here?

Yes, minor heart attack and perfect storm. I couldn't believe both my primary and backup internet were both down, I was using 4G internet on my phone to close some of my positions at the close with IB's TWS mobile app. LOL.

I use a Peplink Balance 20 with 2 WANS and a 4 G backup ( 4G USB modem ). This has auto fail-over, active-active, active-standby etc modes, so you stay connected most of the time as long as one of the WAN is available. Pretty reliable so far.

hey Mike. i think you could also use your Phone internet as a third backup solution for your Desktop, just open a hotspot with one click on your mobile device and connect through wifi to it, for the unlikely case this does happen again.

I have disabled all comments on YouTube videos. This is because the comments were very rarely used by genuine users. Instead, I get about 100 new comments a day that are spam, get rich quick crap. Disabling comments across the board is my solution to not deal with that any more -- besides, people can comment on futures.io (formerly BMT) directly in the webinar thread.

A minor change regarding outbound SMTP mail via our relay (Mandrill) regarding SSL security. There should be zero impact, but I am logging it here in case I am wrong.

A minor security change I made about 1 hour ago resulted in people not being able to upload images to the forum for the last hour. My fault, and fixed now.

I doubt this has anything to do with you, but just wanted to let you know that when I checked my yahoo email this morning, my mobile app showed 3 emails from futures.io (formerly BMT) but a desktop chrome browser only showed 1 of the three.

Probably something crazy yahoo are doing, but trying to contact their tech support is truely impossible so can't even raise it with them. Just mentioned it in case people start claiming they are not getting email notifications through Yahoo.

Just be sure to mark futures.io (formerly BMT) as 'not spam' any time it shows up in your spam folder. There is nothing more I can do, we already use SPF, DKIM, X-Unsubscribe headers, and use a paid commercial third party to deliver our mail that has one of the strongest reputations in the industry.

Due to a screw up on my part, the site has been largely inaccessible the last 5 minutes, spitting out a bunch of errors. Should be fixed now.

Guys,

There was a remnant problem from this that was just discovered today, and hopefully fixed today. The problem would have prevented people from downloading larger attachments from futures.io (formerly BMT) in the last week.

If anyone continues to have issues please report them immediately.

As of October 2 2015, BMT is now futures.io.

I have temporarily disabled the captcha and security questions normally required to perform "Human Verification" steps, such as resetting a forgotten password.

This is because I'm expecting thousands and thousands of resets in the coming days, and want to minimize the number of problems. I'll re-enable this after things return to normal.

The side effect is there may be a large increase in forum spam while this is disabled. Please use the 'report post' feature if you stumble across some spam.

Those bastards don't waste any time, do they?

Sadly, one more example of why this site is as good as it is -- attempts to hijack the attention of the legitimate members to sell them something.

Homepage title tag is only the URL. Should change it to something of more substance. Title tag is one of the most important tags for SEO.

This is very important, everyone needs to make some effort to check their spam box and mark as not spam.

Mike

Agreed. Adding address to contacts corrected problem.

Homepage title tag is only the URL. Should change it to something of more substance. Title tag is one of the most important tags for SEO.

This would take some custom doing unfortunately. I'll look into it. The old one was just "Big Mike Trading".

Mike,

just want to let you know the auto notification to subscribed threads does not generate a "correct" link.

Here is a screenshot of the email below what I've got:

The link is an excerpt from the email and obviously won't be resolved properly.

https://futures.io/elite-circle/35208-converting-ninjatrader-7-indicators-ninjatrader-8-free.html[/url]

If I copy the link and delete the "junk" after "xxxxxxtrader-8-free.html" than the link is good.

Hope this helps!

atata

Interesting problem. But the issue is embedded links inside posts, not the link to the post itself which is at the top of the page "View newest post". That is what you should be clicking to view the post.

Either way, this won't be fixed until the new framework.

Mike,

yap I can confirm clicking on the "View Newest Post" works fine. Also I've got other notification email where the link itself is fine too.
No big deal for me, just wanted to let you know so if there is a chance can be fixed.

On this email I've just noticed the followings:
The link works fine, yet when I click on the "View newest post" it takes me to the very first page of the thread.
On the previous email I've reported clicking on the "View newest post" takes me to the correct spot, but not on this one....
The link itself works fine but the "button" not quite.

Hope this helps,

atata

Some changes were made a while back (months?) to improve SSL security of the site, including adding a "nosniff" parameter to our headers.

Earlier today @Inletcap reported a problem displaying images in IE11. Works fine in Chrome, FF, Safari and even Edge (Microsoft's replacement for IE). I confirmed the problem was related to the "nosniff" parameter, and disabled it.

I am hoping that if anyone else uses IE11 they haven't gone months unable to view images on the site without reporting the issue to me...

I've noticed quite a few random graphics glitches with latest releases of Chrome (usually black boxes of various shapes, mostly Vista laptop but also saw on W7 i7 tower once today.) However, this was the latest new one tonight - no menus, F5 wouldn't clear it, restart Chrome did.

When this happens, and F5/reload doesn't solve it, try doing Ctrl-Shift-N for new incognito window. This will disable your extensions, unless you specifically have allowed them in incognito mode. I am thinking maybe one of your extensions is the culprit here.

Ok will try but I usually have zilch extensions, will look into this though, thanks.

Just caught the other one as you were posting:



I seem to think Chrome'ies have done some sort of rendering rearchitecting lately, caught an enforced field trial on a machine last week, not sure if it's connected or not.

Carefully (as an expert) use this address in chrome:

chome://flags

Then you'll see some options for rendering and GPU stuff. You can try changing them.

That's a sh*tload of flags, even more than I write, I'll stick with hitting the 'reset all to default' button for now.

(I think they should have been anyway, but I'll still see if it goes away.)

Sorry for the 15-20 mins of downtime today. First downtime in 238 days.

It was my fault, I accidentally copied something to the wrong server and the production server ran out of disk space, crashing it.

I've made it so that News and Current Events updates (new posts) will no longer show up on the forum homepage next to the chatbox. This is because recently this subforum has seen a lot of activity which not everyone is interested in seeing.

Mike

Just found this. @Big Mike, is this the reason why posts and threads in News and Current Events also do not show up when I check all my posts/threads?

This morning for the past 2:30 hours the server has been under extreme load due to a DDoS attack. I've mitigated it for now and everything should be back to normal.

Basically a group of IP addresses were exploiting the site in such a way it caused a very high load. No damage or anything, just sporadic disruption of service due to extreme load on the server.

I would love to auto mitigate in the future, but this was somewhat complicated to detect. Maybe on the new server and new framework.

Imagine the ES pit back in the 1980s. Say you're a pit trader/computer server for this metaphor. On a normal trade day, you'll be able to clearly hear all of the people communicating with you. Bids and offers (and requests to access this forum or that page) are easy for you to deal with. Now imagine being in the pit during the crash in the 80s. Everything is chaotic; you know that people are buying and selling because you hear the noise, but you can't talk to the guy five feet away from you because everybody is screaming in your ear. When the computer server gets a couple of morons "shouting" at it from their computers, it can't hear the rest of us who actually want to use the site.

This isn't a perfect example but a DDoS attack basically bombards the server with so many requests that it cannot function properly.

There are services such as CloudFlare that offer DDoS protection.

Doesn't work with our kind of configuration, I've looked into before. Not sure it would have prevented this particular kind of attack either way.

Wow a DDoS attack ?
Is it 1996 ?

Are "they" probing for weaknesses in the board script ?

"They" are probably trying to get access to the super-secret-sub-forum where we only post the winning trades in advance .

@Big Mike, it looks like I stopped receiving email notices of my subscribed threads sometime yesterday, 8/10/16. I've made no changes to my FIO settings, there is nothing in my spam folder, and I am getting emails from other sources.

FYI.

Bob.
