Site Outage today was created by Gary
Sorry about the brief outage today, it was beyond my control and down to the hosting company. Some wannabee "hacker" managed to change the default page on the folders so I had to copy the backed up file back, only took about 5 minutes to fix all the sites once I worked out what they'd done. There was no actual intrusion and thankfully no malicious code injected so your data/email addresses weren't compromised. I've put a ticked in to the hosting company to find the culprits and inject them with something more painful, if it happens again can someone who knows me give me a call on the Cell (not in the middle of the night though ;) )
Cheers

What kind of site fixer upper person won't get out of bed at 3am just to fix things so I can post something while it fleetingly shoots through my wee brain ?

My wife calls me a curmudgeon. I haven't looked it up but I assume it means "fun loving and free spirited" or some such twaddle. I inform and perform over at www.militarymodels.co.nz and stick my oar in here as well. My passion is WWII 1/35 armour but I'm coming around to liking the odd 1/32 thing...

Probably the same type that has to wait for his wife to come home and fix it. :-) :p
I'm annoyed as I really can't see the mentality behind this kind of shit, if they are bored then maybe they should go find another camel to fcuk. :angry:

Yeah but those sort usually get a coffee, banana cake and a foot rub to calm their furrowed little brows to make up for their suffering.

Some people just don't have developed brains. Actually I believe it's 99% of the population but then I could just be old and grumpy.

Yeah, I could think of several things that would give me a greater sense of well-being than sending some virus or the like through the net to someone :evil:

Break the rats fingers. See how fast he can type using a stick in his mouth...

It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

Its beyond me why people bother. It achieves nothing, though it does perhaps reveal who has the biggest dick..... on their head

Cover their hands in dog poop and then break their fingers with a hammer, works for me.
In some respects it was better that it was everyone at the hosting company, they are one of the biggest hosts and they are quick to react, also means I don't have to change anything as it wasn't at a site level.
