  • Board Outage 8 Sept 2011

    As some may have noticed, the board had some problems today, in that it reverted to February 2010, losing posts since that date

    This appears to have been resolved and normal service has resumed.

    Please keep an eye out for announcements here in case there is more downtime.

    It seems that the site was under a heavy DOS attack that lasted several hours. In attempt to fight the attack the site was moved to another node, and several precautions were taken. Right now, all seems to be fine, but more investigation will be done. Source of the attack seems to be an IP address in Saudi Arabia.

    I strongly urge all active members (and admins) to change their password ASAP.
    Cheers,
