    Well done, Admin!

    For killing off the cow - and returning us to Rockets.
    November 2015. For a whole series of reasons - I am retiring from Forum Life. I've been testing my resolve to live without using them - and feel better for it. Yes I will miss the contact I have with folk around the world - but my life is changing - and I am moving on. Certain forum members have my email address and I will see emails - but I will not be returning to the forum and will not attend PM's. Stay well all.

    Thanks Chris.

    As you (plural) will know, we were taken down last night (UK time) by our hosting site, Fatcow.

    The reason they gave was that they found infected files, so took us offline for our own good, then tried to sell us a service to remedy the problem.

    Marcus looked into the files they quoted, which, as I understand it, were the ones he removed himself after we were hacked many, many months ago, and the files they quoted no longer existed.

    It seems that someone at their end did some sort of archival scan and reacted to a problem that no longer existed.

    No warning, no nothing, just bam, offline.

    I reacted to their 'help' desk with abuse, sarcasm and threats, Marcus' reaction was cerebral and techie.

    I've no idea which reaction did the trick, although I suspect it was Marcus', but they put us back on line a short time ago with no apology whatsoever.

    Bastards.

    My grateful thanks to all members for your collective patience.

    Well done the 2 of you.

    I thought the site was taken down by the NSA, because of all the Political bull

    I'd love to, but I imagine it would give Marcus a shed load of work, which wouldn't be fair.

    Thanks to all y'all for getting us back online again. I really appreciate your work and this forum, or should that be these fora? Either way, well done.

    Patience hell! Half the board went scurrying over to the .net sight like lemmings headed over a cliff.

    Glad y'all got it sorted so fast. Good job


    Can we kill the cow, and fire up the pit?
