Re: OVT Tool becoming super slow these days?

Yeah. They react to hammerings by increasing the delay time before they send back an answer. Which probably makes things worse.

Pretty bizarre way of doing it. I don't think they temporarily block by IP # like they used to.

Yeah, now we know who's hammering it. #$#@%!!

They know that blocking ip is useless, with all those proxies. Guess they should implement image password instead.

Good God man! Don't suggest things like that! They might catch on!

Re: OVT Tool becoming super slow these days?

In case some of you haven't twigged what the problem is, Overture is being overloaded by data miners. Unable to evaluate domains by testing the traffic, they are scripting Overture instead. Don't worry things will improve when IE 7 is released, as they revert back to more conventional methods. Mind you at that point there won't be much use for it, because most of what is left will have gone.

Re: OVT Tool becoming super slow these days?

Does anyone here use DRT to query Overture?

It works for normal domains but gives gibberish for IDNs.

Shame, because multiple proxies all working at once means very fast Overture queries.
