      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. Yes, it was the first Matchbox kit. http://www.matchboxkits.org/product_info.php?cPath=27_34_42&products_id=431 Chris
  2. The first version of this song I ever heard was by fellow Nova Scotian John Allan Cameron, back in the 70's. Chris
  3. Deepest condolences, Tom. Loosing your Mum is a rough experience. It's been over 15 years since my Mum passed and it still gets me once in a while. Chris
  4. Oh yeah! I forgot about that one. It's easy-peasy. Chris
  5. Welcome from the other ex-colony, far to your northeast. Chris
  6. You need to use a photo hosting site. Photobucket, Flickr and GOOGLE Photo are a few of the options out there. Chris
  7. Can't help you with GOOGLE, but in regards to Photobucket ad pop-ups, I just coughed up the $20.00 CDN ( $14.99 ) per year and went pop-up free. Works smoother than snot on a doorknob now. Chris
  8. Thanks! Chris
  9. My first Airfix kit was the 1/72 Mosquito, in 1968. Chris
  10. Has it ever been determined if the Blenheim photos are original colour photos or colourized B&W images? Chris
  11. Sometime way back in the early 70's, I discovered a bagged Mustang at the local department store. I didn't have enough money on me at that time, so I did the proper thing and tried to hide the kit at the back of the shelf, behind some other kits, until I could get my allowance the next weekend. Alas, on my return to the store the next Friday night, the kit was gone. I never ever came upon another one. Chris
  12. Gladiator with reflector sights: http://www.iwm.org.uk/collections/item/object/205208712 http://www.iwm.org.uk/collections/item/object/205211927 Wow! It's hard to find good period photo's of Gladiator cockpits that show the gunsight. Chris
  13. Just move a ways north. We're the next best thing to British that's close by. Move to Sarnia, Ontario. You could still drive back to Chicago for the weekend. Chris
