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".

I know this idea has been discussed , but did anyone ever post such a thread? I got a shipment from Caswell Canada today , ordered on monday last week and arriving on my island paradise on Friday! I'll delve into that later today. Here are the contents of Caswell's Cobalt Plating Kit , which I felt was a good way to get into plating and will fit my needs , I think. : Nice and tidy , well packaged. I would like to start by asking if any members here have heard of , or tried , an old model RR trick. The trick is thus: The part , some solder and an amount of Cream of Tartar is placed in a pan with some water and boiled. For how long I dont know , but the solder through some chemical/physical/chemical/witchcraft is 'plated ' onto the part. Anyone tried this? Please feel free to add your experiences' and info here. Thank you ,Steve
