    I was reading thru the forums. I saw a post or two where folks were wondering ----- or looking for proof of banned accounts or actions that had been taken. Largely the posts were rumors. However I came across one individual who commented saying they had joined certain sites just to see if bannings were occuring.
    The said individual made specific reference to the program which I pretty much tossed out in my title. Well after reading the post I couldn't help ,but wonder if there was any truth to it. So I took a little web trip to said site and browsed there forums. Imagine how surprised I was to find he was making it up NOT!
    I again restate. As a computer technician that holds several certifications. It is simply banter on Cal's part that he is getting names of players who cheat. I again also restate my point that UO's Terms Of Service is not a living contract that is updated every patch that requires the players to read it every single time they log in.
    The point being that statement "We are taking action." Only by GM's who are able to observe cheating or scripting. They can't determine anything from the server side it is physically impossible. The only way they can tell is if when you patch the game it has a zip file that downloads and installs a tracking software WHICH WOULD BE COMPLETELY ILLEGAL as The Terms Of Service is not a living document.
    So those of you long time players who are sick of the pushing the mouse key 5 million times to mine who have found alternative methods keep at it as long as you are in front of the pc.

    Man... That is hard to read. I am wondering what that is.

    A rant? Really, what are you trying to say?

    Certs don't mean much. You basically buy them , not earn them. I have a guy working for our compan in plumbing, 3 years schooling, certs out the wazzo for Cisco and ComPTech. He cant even config a linsys OTC router and mounts motherboards directly to the cases (no standoffs). 3 Years, 30k in bills. Lots of certs. Knows nothing...Keep your certs.


    I see someone has never taken statistics . Dont even really need statistics.

    Tell me this oh guru of IT, you mean to tell me that an acccount that has been logged on for 72 hours (not counting server restarts) doing nothing but mining the same spots and recalling over and over to the same exact spot is something that they can NOT detect server side??

    Sure they can tell an accounts been logged on 72 hours. Sure they can tell a player has been going to the same spots over and over. Problem is they can't prove the player was scripting. Real simple solution to that scenario my wife played. Then my kids played. If it even got to that point. Again requiring the use of a GM to walk up and say hello are you there.
