      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. Had problems on and off with the sloth since Sunday, both on my Mac at home and my iPad here at work! When I started browsing tonight, about an hour ago, trying to open any of the streams that I have saved, took 5+ minutes to open. Once opened, browsing is both quick and sloth like though not necessarily at the same time!
  2. Sympathetic to the last...
  3. Stunning though I'm not sure that I'd want to write the programming for the CNC machining, must have taken an age! Not that I'm that clever, in the first place...
  4. It's been discussed somewhere, very recently but buggered if I can remember where! (old age, grumble, moan, mutter ) It might have even been on here.... I believe it was the P-38J series, with the 'Droopsnoop' version also being trialled and I think I have a picture saved on my computer at home, which I'll paste here tomorrow, if no one else links to the article I'm thinking about, beforehand.
  5. Seconded, thirded and even fourthed....
  6. If you could bottle your skills, I'd like to buy some from you
  7. Its a bit like a school sports day, mustn't have anyone loosing and crying, everyone has to be a winner!
  8. I seem to remember that there was a plan to build a road over a CWGC site in either France or Belgium (the A23 or 24 seems to ring a bell) and I always thought that the land used for the burials, was given in perpetuity! Not sure if the road was ever built or is still planned but if the burials are not looked after by the CWGC, would it be worthwhile getting them involved?
  9. Nicely done plus the paint work is cracking
  10. Looks great, any idea about costs yet?
  11. Ahhh, watching Thunderbirds, building a Lego Fireflash, losing my temper because the tail kept failing off, gasping when one of the rescue trolleys loses control, tyres bursting, Virgin sweating, seems like only yesterday String? What string.... You'll be telling me next that nobody else walked like that
  12. Nice, particularly like the rigging
  13. Phew, thought it was just me
  14. We used to have an Old English Sheepdog and he would bark if an ant farted, somebody had the nerve to walk in front of the house, the postman delivered or somebody came downstairs. He used to sleep near our back door and some young snot decided to break into our garage and shed and cleared out the freezer and took all my power tools. Not a sound from the dog until an ant farted, somebody had the nerve to walk in front of the house, the postman delivered or somebody walked downstairs.
  15. Another vote against varifocals! With varifocals, the idea is that you move your head, rather than your eyes, to focus and having tried them for 3 months, I was not very good at keeping my eyes still and as such, I spent more time trying to find the focal point rather than being able to focus on what was in front of me! Not a good idea when you're driving for a living....
