      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. Pure sex, that shape......
  2. Don't forget to re-shape the front of the tailfin, one of the howling inaccuracies I've learned from here.
  3. Fantastic modelling!
  4. I take my tea "Julie Andrews"... (white nun) Mrs Hovis takes hers "Whoopi Goldberg".........
  5. I don't think you could make tea that's too strong with just one teabag, unless you were drinking out of an egg cup.
  6. Let the Brits play with it for a while and we'll get it working one way or another!
  7. If somebody can't do their job right, I think it's right that you let the company know, I suspect they are a small business and need to keep the customer base they have built up. It's in their best interests.
  8. Oo-er....
  9. Another masterclass. *pulls up seat and opens bag of crisps...
  10. Sgt Hovis 2390(BRA) Sqn Great being a cadet in NI during the troubles, it meant we hardly ever wore uniform in public. It also meant we used Queen's University Air Squadron's Bulldogs while most cadets at the time were still in Chippies. Being close to the City Airport meant we got to fly a lot, we used to get phone calls on Wednesday lunchtimes sometimes asking if we could get some cadets together as some squadron had cancelled, we were a school squadron and as I always hung around the Sqn Ldr's physics classroom for lunch..... Also got a lot of shooting, we had a very good shooting coach attached to our Sqn, she was a chemistry teacher, but she also won a bronze medal in the 82 NZ commonwealth games and was a Greenfinch in the Army. She got us to Bisley all the time, and sometimes arranged special "treats" for us like an evening firing a selection of pistols, etc. Great days, I miss them. p.s. 3 camps to Leuchars during the change over from Tooms to Tonkas, camps in Linton-on-Ouse, Church Fenton, Cosford and Laarbruch just a month after the first Gulf War, so plenty of pink tonkas and I got to sit in Mig Eater!! Plenty of weekends at Aldergrove, and flights in Pumas, Wessexes, Chinook and a VC10.
  11. Douggie had to learn how to sit on the throne properly though.....
  12. There is however a young pretender to the throne, goes by the name of Dougal......
  13. Thanks Dave, the throne has already been filled, although they haven't earned the jeans yet. We have 10 other furry family members plus 3 blow-ins who seem to be settling in with us, so Molly has become the new "Cat Elder". She'll be getting her stripes in a ceremony sometime next week.
  14. We lost a very old friend today, Mrs Hovis says she got him in 1995 and he was a fully grown cat then so I reckon he was at least 24! RIP Splodge
  15. Joking aside, I think we need to consider the weight some of these proposals would be in 1/24 scale, and whether it could support itself.
