      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. I was thinking a 100 years but I could be and are probably wrong but councils can and do "re-use" plots but they do try to get into contact with relatives to see what they want to do, sure you can renew the plot but not certain.
  2. Crikey, was only recently Tony Blackburn took over his slot on Radio 2 much to his annoyance... Carry on playing the records fella....
  3. Does this include Parcel Force? I've had to go to a Post Office to collect several items, fortunate for me as closer than the sorting/delivery office so not complaining
  4. I like it!! And you say you're recovering?! You're doing a fine job so far
  5. Thanks, always time to look at a Britannia, as you say looking a bit sad, specially as it was the last Britannia to fly? Anyway would love to see it fly but don't think it will
  6. At the end of the day, which is costlier to operate? Easy answer that, trickier question - is the F-16 better value with the tasks it'll have to do compared to the F-15? Who isn't looking to cut costs nowadays and it's obvious what they want to do....
  7. Registered as a business but there doesn't seem to be any details on the id or the address as like all the other businesses I have dealed with on Fleabay had? Damn good deal if legit (got me tempted!) but with how the world is now I filter out all items to just the UK, even then there are many Chinese etc businesses registered here but that's better than nothing. Could be a introductory offer I suppose, a new name on Ebay trying to get a customer base going? Maybe? Hmmm
  8. In my opinion it hasn't got political, it's perfectly reasonable to expect service to be provided when the customer would like it to be served. On the other hand you have to accept that the people who give the service obviously have to be paid, and the more the unsocial the hours the more you'd have to pay to be served. For me working in retail I'm luckier than many now where I've got a contract so old I still have to be paid for Sundays and Bank Holidays and to an extent nights. New starters don't get any extra remuneration for Sundays and Bank Holidays so in effect they can be forced to work Boxing Day and get paid no extra. I work every other Saturday and a late night during the week with the odd Sundays and nights and nearly every Bank Holiday, most of this is contractual which I'd rather not do but I accept this to get the cash to pay the bills but I do object to split shifts, horrible things where it almost feels you don't get away from work
  9. Dunno about other retail workers but my shifts are bad enough now, I don't fancy working even worse hours........
  10. Makes a change with modern cars, don't forget to put the coolant back in Huh, joke on me, just see the "filled" bit, at first thought it said "fitted"
  11. Well for a small fee I can get hold of part of the Royal Family Oh, you mean the real Royal Family?! lol
  12. What cracks me up and annoys at the same time is the craze for the word "app" when it's been "program" for years, trendy names eh
  13. Using Opera here which is based on Chrome and have no problems.... maybe worth having a look to see if it's close enough to try
  14. Yup, Partridges in Hadleigh too. Can't justify it though unless going anyway as one bolt would cost a fortune when factoring fuel costs in!
  15. Uh huh, needed some bags for a Maytag which is a copy of the old Hoover Satellite which "hovers" and got them in at around same price as online, with it being less than 5 minutes walk away I'm ok for vacuum cleaner bits haha Only thing I can say is Suffolk hasn't got a huge population and Ipswich isn't that big either so maybe not enough demand to keep several suppliers going, but than again so many things nowadays are seen as disposable... As a example we haven't got any model shops here, or nearby really, no more real hardware shops so difficult to even get a single bolt etc, unless you're into charity shops or betting shops then I'm afraid Ipswich is a dead loss, don't think Suffolk as a whole fairs much better
