      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".

two titles, same book!

4 posts in this topic

I have just purchased 2 books by the same author, British Research and Development Aircraft and British Prototypes by Ray Sturtivant, now here is the thing, I thought I was buying two different books seeing as they both have different titles and ISBN numbers. I was wrong , I have bought two identical books with different titles.

Am I loosing the plot because I just do not get it?

I have never come across this before so any explanation would help restore my sanity.

 

Thank you.

That often happens when the book is published by different publishers and/or in different markets. I'll bet that the publication dates and locations are different on your two copies.

I suspect that the first book is the 1990 original edition, whilst the second is the 1995 'Promotional Reprint Company' edition.  Buyer beware!
