  1. Hi Ahsan, Wow, sorry about the problem... I think I should be accountable for this mistake and not xisto since I was unable to run the Mycent script for quite a while.. (Diseases, bed rest and what not) I ran the script the instant Yordan Pm ed me and your site is back up... As for the lack of response from support, can you please give me the ticket id? Sometimes, the tickets are assorted incorrectly which means that the right person is unable to see the request... I am sure you understand that these things happen sometimes Sorry about the problems... Hope it didn't cause too much of a pain for you.
  2. From what has been going on.. I have been reading quite a few complaints about Xbox.. And most of the communities I monitor seem to be taking Sony's (PS4) side so far... Here is a pretty funny image about the different "sharing" policies Sony & Microsoft employ Sharing a game on PS4 ---
  3. How are you doing?

  4. **sighs** Seeing all the youngsters growing up and getting their hearts broken is so very normal yet so very painful .. One of my youngest sisters has gone ahead and had her heart broken very terribly... Dearest darling, My darling, where do I begin? I write to you because I know it is still premature to be speaking about your broken heart. But time waits for nothing, not even for kindness, so I write to you with the intent of retaining a piece of me for you to hold onto when the time is right. It seems like forever since you showed me the shattered pieces of your heart. You asked me with an aching soul & tear filled eyes "Why?" , a question I cannot answer for you; a question I have asked myself many times. Seeing you shattered dear pea was a terrible thing. I felt undone as I held you close to me, repeatedly telling your disbelieving mind you'd persevere. You questioned my comfort and rejected my compassion, I felt your pain, my little bird, I did not mean to patronize.. I wish I could show you my own heart, how it has been glued all over so many times before. Instead I held you in silence feeling your sobs until you could sob no more. Sparrow, do you remember me holding you tightly against me? At those moments, I'd hope you could hear my heart beating for you... I'd hope in stony silence that you'd live for me if not for him. I watched you sleep, sitting by your side ready to help whether you asked or not. I've lost count over the time I peeked into the box filled with all the pieces of your heart and all the love in the world. There were times, I lost my patience; I know you were hurt when I bared my teeth at you like the rest but little girl, I assure you my dear that it wasn't out of anger. My frustration lay in the fact that I could still see you bloom without your sun, even when you did not. Darling sister, I remember the day you lost your sun, watching you wilt and waste yourself as you pined for your sun. in your darkest moments, I'd see you holding your heart filled box tempted to throw it in the ocean. I would sit angry for I could still see your sun rise and set for all that he loved. I fumed over the fact that he failed to fight for the one that loved him the most. I wished at those times for a chance, a chance that would allow me to destroy him, show him the despair and misery he has grown in you. My body trembled with rage seeing his callousness, I will not lie, I was tempted to show you my displeasure, convince you that he was not worth your love or your forgiveness. But it isn't easy to pick sides... I can feel his pain at times, understand that he didn't mean to betray you on purpose. I know he still loves you and hopes that you'd find happiness. I can see that he is sorry about hurting you my dearest but he does not see what I see. He is saved from seeing you wilt, seeing your daily struggle despite your brave front and hollow smiles. You act as if a huge weight has been lifted off you but I see you numb. I see how bitter you have become after you lost faith in love. I can see your empty eyes, opening your mouth to speak only to shut yourself from the world... Seeing your shattered heart, I am tempted to glue it back for you so that you'd allow beauty back in your life, Release all those boxed emotions. But I stop myself knowing that this is your process, you take your time, my little babe, you know your heart best. I will fight for you when he didn't. Live for you even if he won't. No misery or suffering can drown you because I will rescue you each time. I know how hard your path back to happiness it, you have me through all your aches, fears and tears. I have been where you are, and as alone as I was, you will never be alone. I will be there by your side whether you still hold a torch for him or decide to move on. Until the day you need me no more, I will be your guiding light, your confidante and your loving sister.

  7. Unfortunately for everyone involved, the XBOX one has tremendous pressure put on its little shoulders. I've been reading about how many are not happy about the Xbox One's looks or the fact that they don't believe Microsoft's promises, promises about enhanced performance and functionality considering the "problematic" history of the predecessor "Xbox 360" The only way I can see Xbox one beating Playstation is through marketing. Considering how popular Play Station is, I am not sure how Xbox One will fare... Personally I wouldn't buy Xbox one unless I saw the console doing well in action
  8. So, did you ever go out and try your new chompers at a restaurant?
  9. Hey Starscream Good to see you here again mate Off topic, Stackoverflow lately seems to have 2 types of people in masses, the idiots & the entitled... I tried getting help only to be shunned by the "smart" people there... Don't get me wrong, some have been really helpful but mostly, if you pose a L1 question, you might get shafted >_> Coming to your question... I am probably going to be useless since I don't know what you are working with.. But I hope you have already referred to the guide given here :- https://www.owasp.org/index.php/XSS_%28Cross_Site_Scripting%29_Prevention_Cheat_Sheet http://forums.xisto.com/no_longer_exists/ http://joshduck.com/blog/2008/04/05/securing-your-php-code-xss/ If these are rehashed links, please ignore.. You could add more to this topic by sharing what you know about XSS
  10. Every day in the news, you hear of some species on the brink of extinction or a species that has been officially named "Extinct" (The Formosan Clouded Leopard was the latest to be added to the list). Every announcement leaves me asking the same question "How will our species end?" My personal belief is that our extinction could happen due to a severe modification in the current ecosystem / web of life. Every ecosystem depends on each component as every component in an ecosystem has a specific role in the sustenance of all species. Basically, for any ecosystem to work like a well oiled machine, all parts need to be intact. Extinction of species is uncontrollable since it has been proven that species go extinct with or without our intervention. However, we cannot deny upon Man's role in the extinction of a devastatingly large amount of flora (plants) & fauna (animals). Mankind according to me will end the same way every other species did, a negative change in the environment creating problems in living, food & procreation . Those who believe in Man living here forever are also welcome on the condition that you back it up with a proper reasoning.. Don't just add "Man will live forever because he is at the top of the food chain"
  11. An update : The script is still down but OpaQue has nearly finished it.. And if any one notices the forums being faster, blame it on magic
  12. The upgrades usually are invisible since they mainly update the back end and patch any security flaws.. But they also come with many new features in them, however any new feature included has to be configured by the admin. The main thing everyone must remember about the upgrades is that the code is often changed by the developer so OpaQue has to update his code according to the new one, this process takes time. A MyCent run was done recently so members might have received a little credit but the script is not yet in full motion so please stay seated and post as much as you can
  13. I never had children of my own for several reasons, but having had taken care of several nieces / nephews and cousins it is very easy to understand why Parents do what they do. From teen-hood to adulthood we make many decisions, accepting the consequences that come along with it. The bad decisions really stick to us and all we want is for no loved one to go through what we go through. Parents push their children either for their own gains & future or because they believe that a certain career will give their child the best in the world. Say, growing up in our time, we might see doctors and engineers make the most money while the younger generation sees the Internet industry earn more than medical professionals. It is really understandable, suppose your parent grew up as a simple clerk at a bank, he isn't going to win prizes or respect or admiration or even a raise. He goes through life underpaid and unappreciated, he sees the doctors , bank managers & PhD holders in the family get everything... So, he is determined to set things right through his kid... Make sure his child never goes through what he went through irregardless of whether the child is capable of achieving the parent's dream or not. Really sad if you think of it, humans are the only ones gifted with individuality and we waste it in the name of petty things. I don't plan on having children, but if I do end up taking care of children (I dream of one day opening a nursery school for tots) I would answer all their questions for them, the decision is for them to take but I would ensure they had no doubts or fear of the result. -- OFF TOPIC -- Many years ago, a little niece of mine found out that I smoke (I do not smoke or drink in front of younglings)... She really looks up to me so she attempted to get a nicotine habit of her own... Now, I did not want her parents involved since they would not understand her reasons and would react harshly (they are very overprotective and orthodox). I remember taking my niece out for a walk and explaining to her that I had no authority over her body but I did have a responsibility to keep her prepared about the consequences... The problems and limitations smoking brings.. I was very lucky to have such a smart niece She never picked up a cigarette after that day. My extended family has several little ones who are burdened with the fear of the future, their parents worry about how their children will survive in this terrible economy so I often see my siblings , nieces , nephews and grand children pushing their kids a lot hoping that they'll pick up multiple strengths thereby increasing their chances in the future. At the brink of my teenage years, my parents realized that I could not be pushed so they let me float my way, I doubt you have many parents like them, I could have been a garbage collector and they would still be proud of me.. As long as I am able to take care of myself and my own family, it does not matter since the rest will fall in place.

    Now What?

    Well, now that your website is back to normal and everyone seems to have received the notice.. I am closing this topic as it has been resolved
  15. The funny thing about teeth is that you can lose them because you have bad genes in your family , you forget to take care of them, you take care of them too well (too much hygiene can also ruin your teeth) OR you take every chance you get in having them knocked out. As a kid, I had a few kids fall on me, the front tooth chipped and a new one grew from underneath it, the two front teeth are now permanently crooked, not too bad but pretty noticeable. While in a fight with a fellow child, I almost had my teeth ripped out.. I was biting him and he yanked his arm away... While running with my dog in the yard, I slammed against a wooden plank... I look back and thank my teeth for not leaving me. As for the stitches bit, yeah, I can take them without anesthesia as long as the doctor allows it.. One of the patients in the clinic, a really bad mannered dog bit my hand, the dorsal side (top of your hand) had 3 holes in them... And we continued treatment, My colleagues thought I was made of nails & bricks until we went in for a routine dental check up.. I made a huge fuss going in and getting my teeth cleaned, I was happy to leave that chair... ICE CREAM!!! I love Ice Cream, I remember being rewarded very handsomely by my Aunt... After her new teeth were fitted in, she always had ice cream in her refrigerator, and every time I'd visit her, she'd give me at least 2... We'd sit in her patio reading ice cream reading books. One of the older gentleman in my family had an incident during dinner.. His dentures fell into his plate as the waiter was picking it up.. I was really young and was told by my mother that eating junk food always results in your teeth falling out... It did not help that my uncle told me that they were his "REAL" teeth.. I was scared of eating junk food for days before my uncle explained how dentures worked...
