      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. That is very helpful - thank you!
  2. Not having been to the show before I am thinking about attending. Can anybody give me a sense of its size please? I've been to Telford and Hornchurch numerous times but as it's a 100 mile drive for me then it needs to be reasonable size to justify the travelling time and fuel. Many thanks in advance.
  3. Thanks for the information. Never been to the base but clearly it's somewhere I need to go!
  4. Very nice indeed! And such good weather too! Were these all taken from outside the wire or did you have base access?
  5. If I recall correctly weren't F16s bought by the Norwegians, Danes, Dutch and Belgians deep serviced (or was it just engines) centrally? Makes sense in terms of cost saving. Turkey's political instability is an area of concern though for such an important weapons system.
  6. That is a class piece of work and photography. Great job!
  7. Really very nice! Great scheme.
  8. My experience has been that Saturday is very busy whereas the one time I had no option but to go on the Sunday it was very quiet indeed and to be honest felt a bit flat in terms of atmosphere. That being said it's better for studying the displays. There is a real buzz on Saturday not least because people are keen to get the bargains under the club tables and from the traders.
  9. Brilliant! Lovely set of shots of aircraft and schemes we really don't see enough of. I really like the Hawk scheme; one of the best I've ever seen. Thanks very much for posting these.
  10. Love the colours on the Hawks! It looks pretty hazy there.
  11. Very nice to see some images of different helicopters in unusual schemes somewhere a long way away. Odd seeing an attack helicopter in virginal white! Thanks for sharing these.
  12. Gave up on Photobucket and as Flickr is new to me this post was very helpful indeed. Thanks v much!
  13. Cheers!
  14. I agree but presumably the airfield is closed at weekends which would mean bringing everybody in. ATC, ground crew, fire cover etc etc. and that means either overtime being paid for civilian staff or time off in lieu for service personnel. If anybody from Yeovilton is reading the thread perhaps they can offer a view.
  15. As much as I dislike Facebook I suppose it has its uses. Details of the Lynx's farewell tour this Friday.
