Web Site Announcements / FORUM SOFTWARE
« on: August 24, 2013, 08:23:45 AM »
Some of you may have noticed the new forum software this morning, its not quite ready yet as not all the messages copied over so we reverted back to this software.

As some of you may know we have been attacked a number of times over the past months from mainly Russian ip's what the Vulcan Bomber could possibly ever have done to upset Russia is a mystery  :roll:  but hey have a go every now and then.

During the last week Jane Thomas and I have had a constant battle against them and the spam, that has only been the visible part of the issue, they have also been using denial of service attacks, well last night they did a blinder and stopped all access to the web server, even we couldn't get on by our methods.

We have moved the whole web site to a new server that has much higher bandwidth and more security, this is already completed.

During the weekend we will be implementing the new forum software that has far greater security and better new user registration checking, it also offers loads of new toys and whistles (i know you all like them)

Anyway sorry for the downtime last night.

Sorry for the downtime

The server is being attacked from abroad with a denial of service attack

We are working to stop this.

It is a one time process.

To request membership of the Club Group, go to "User Control Panel" at the top of the screen, select Usergroups, then click on the select circle to the right of Club Membership and select join from the drop down list and then press submit.
