      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. Either. Although, never say never. There's a T-34/85 in the museum in Prague which is painted shocking pink!! John.
  2. I had AVG for some years, but last year I kept getting messages from them, trying to get me to upgrade and buy their product. Each time I said No Thanks, and then I noticed that my laptop had started to slow down considerably. I then got other messages from AVG telling me that they had detected that my laptop was running slower and if I used their product it could be fixed. After putting up with this for a few weeks, I contacted a friend who is a computer engineer, and he said that he'd run into this no end of times. It's AVG's way of trying to get you to buy their products. The solution was to junk AVG and install Microsoft's own antivirus Windows Defender. Not had any problems since. John.
  3. Thanks for that. I'd never considered doing it that way as I assumed that copying and pasting would have the same effect as uploading photos from you own computer. Obviously it's the text that's the problem as if you loose it, you've got to start all over again. Photos aren't a problem as they can just be uploaded from the hosting site. But once again, thanks. I'll give that a try. John.
  4. This is specifically aimed at the WIP topics. Is it possible to start a topic, or even do an update to it, but not finish it in one go. ie; is it possible to save what you've typed/uploaded and then come back to it later. For instance, you've spent a lot of time typing the text, uploaded photos and then before you can finish, something needs your attention elsewhere and you have to shut down and you have to start again. Sorry if I'm asking the "bl**ding obvious", but it has happened to me more than once. John.
  5. No seller feed back, only been a seller for one month and free postage. Gets better and better. But I think I'll pass. John.
  6. I believe that David Niven served in the HLI for a time. Apparently, he'd requested to serve in the Argyles or the Black Watch and jokingly wrote on his form "anything but the HLI". John.
  7. Splendid job all round Cesar. Now, what's next? John.
  8. What about Soviet use? John.
  9. Yeah, but we're still gonna need a bigger boat!
  10. You think you have problems. A few years ago, I bought a bunch of Formations resin Sherman parts from HLJ at a cost of around 30-40 euros. When they turned up, I got hammered with a 30 euro import charge and a 20 euro handling charge from the currier company, Cronos, who delivered them. When I complained to HLJ about it, they apologised saying that yes, they were aware of this problem, but that they had no control over who delivered their items in France. Needless to say, I never ordered from them again. John.
  11. You learned the techniques well. Great job. I was half way through scratch building one of these using Tamiya's Marder lll for the lower hull, when Tamiya went and announced this kit. Sod's Law! John.
  12. Nice one. It's amazing how stepping out of your comfort zone now and again can give you real enjoyment. John.
  13. Great job on the Mercedes truck. I remember seeing these when I was stationed in Germany in the 60's. In fact, I had brief encounter with one!!! This probably would have been more suited to being posted in the Vehicle Modelling (Non Military) section, but wherever you post it, it looks great. John.
  14. I don't think that I've ever seen a model of a Finnish T-55 before, but it's come out really well. I know through following your WIP, that you've put a lot of work into it. It's also been interesting to see the detail difference between the T-55 and the Tiran-5. Nice one. John.
  15. Another reason why I don't do social media...."It's all fake news folks"! John.
