Hi everyone

I am not actually a member of this forum, but Admin asked me to log in from time to time during his absence* this week and keep an eye on things.

He's just phoned to ask me to apologise on his behalf for the interruptions to service that you've been experiencing today. He's on his way home at the moment and hopes to be able to post a fuller explanation later this evening.

Simon (posting as Ford)

*that was the theory, anyway.

3. Get the cat looked after
4. Pay the leccy bill!
5. Remember passport.
6. Set lights on timer.......

Still checking things out, but I think this was some kind of attack.

We are getting slimed by the online pharmacies big time

Once again my apologies

Still not sure on nature of attack, but have added more defenses.

It is not that, and looking at what is going on now, as the attack is ongoing by way of the spammers, the process is actually a lot more manual that I would have guessed.

They will gain no benefit, so I am surprised at the persistance
