    Default Today's forum outage.

    Sorry.

    I guess I upset a Chinese spammer when I blocked his 200 account requests. A denial of service attack soon followed.

    We're back.

    You must be really hurting his bottom line... I haven't seen a spam bot posting on this forum for months now...

    That outage sucked. I actually got work done. Now the productivity bar has been set to an unreasonably high level

    no apology necessary from the person who actually brings us this site in the first place and keeps it running to boot...

    thanks on both accounts.

    Yes, major kudos for all the efforts to keep this forum going. While I sometimes miss the insider deals on handbags and rhino pills that used to be shared on here , it takes major commitment to keep the forum so well running. Thanks.

    Well, if people really want Rhino pills, I have some. Please ignore the scratched out Cold-FX label.



    Sorry again for the outage. I hope to soon have this site upgraded, but that will take a server move and a few other things.

    The good thing is that the new protocols have only snared one real user so far. The only reason I know is that I got a nasty two word, all caps reply that rhymed with a name akin to a logistics company that hauls sheep - Truck Ewe.

    I think the anti-spam tool did me a favour on that one!
