Actually, they point to slightly different IP's. What I want to know is some of the other tests :P

There is a test3 also which requires a username and password so I'm leaving it well enough alone.

There are also several other test sites.

Right now I'm on the test3 server. J/K.

When you go there, in XP at least, when it asks for your log-in info. It says:

CDRLabs Statistics


Anyone know what that might be?

Socheat can explain it better than me, but essentially he has a proxy running that balances the traffic between two IP's. Right now both IP's go to the same server, but if need be we could split the traffice between 2 or more hosts.

Yeah, test3 takes you to the stats page. That's for admins only though.

That's basically it. It does some other useful stuff too, but I won't bore you with the details. Pay no attention to the men behind the curtain... :wink:

It's actually a scheme to double the advertising revenue :wink:. For a while, if I went to the forum via cdrlabs main page, I ended up on test2... but clicking on my bookmark for the forum took me to www.... So I ended up with 2 popunder ads, not 1. :evil:

Hope you don't activate test4, test5, test6 etc. for the active forums to jack up the ads even more. :wink:

Oh shush. You know that's not true.

Just be glad we don't sell your information like some websites do. Now that is evil. :evil:

That's what you get for snooping around! :wink: Now we made 2 pennies instead of 1. :D

That wasn't the intended purpose, hopefully it still isn't happening. I've turned off pop-ups in my browser, so I haven't noticed any problems.
