      Ongoing DDoS Attack causing Forum Slowness   26/04/17

      In case you have missed the announcement, the reason that the forum has been slow at times since the minor version update the other day is due to a Denial of Service attack, brute force attack on our email, and judging by the lag with our FTP response, that too.  If you're feeling like you're experiencing a glitch in the Matrix, you're not wrong.  This is the same MO as the attack in September 2016 that occurred when we transitioned to the new version 4 of the software.  We're currently working with US and UK cyber-crime departments, who specialise in this sort of thing, and we're hopeful that we'll be able to track them down this time by using the accumulated evidence already held.    We are pretty certain that it's a continuation of the same attack last year, only at a reduced intensity to deter people from using the site "because it's terribly slow", rather than taking it down completely, and we're also sure of the motivations of those responsible.  Spite.   Please bear with us in the interim, and wish us luck in dealing with these.... "people".

  1. Isn't the handling fee about £8? To be honest, I think that's a big handling fee!
  2. PC, sadly no, although it would have been a splendidly Victorian name - Entwistle Hughes!
  3. When my wife and I were doing the same, we settled on my choice of Sally for our daughter. To this day my wife refuses to believe I chose that name from a song title in the Tommy album. (Sally Simpson). There are no points for guessing what I was going to suggest we name a boy .........
  4. I'm a little concerned about the fact that you took a honeymoon while reading Fighter Pilot. Looking at a Damn fine model, clearly you weren't too distracted !
  5. Vince, I can't agree more. I shall dunk a couple later in my coffee. I find Ginger Nuts a satisfying dunk, too, but I don't dunk rich tea. Nor do I dunk chocolate biscuits, there are standards.
  6. This Aeroplane/Lancaster issue is also available in Sainsbury, no obvious indication that it is a promotion with Sainsbury.
  7. Fiction; End of watch by Stephen King. Next up will be Canada by Richard Ford. Non fiction; Only in it for the Money by Clinton Heylin. Next up will be Behind the Black Door by Richard Aldritch.
  8. Martian, you said "Next up I need to prime some more interior parts and I have to begin making wiring looms. We will then see if my grand idea for making a more realistic loom is pants or not! " looking at the wiring loom behind the model, you need a bigger model.
  9. Why am I not surprised?
  10. I'd like to second Leonl, excellent show again, excellent Victoria sponge and some very nice models on display.
  11. Ced, you're welcome! Good to meet up with yourself and Leonl, I confess I was impressed by how politely you took my ramblings !
  12. Leonl, good to meet you and your son as well.
  13. My goodness, that Sierra just fits in like a dream, doesn't it!
