    This weekend a stupid hacker wannabe found,
    on his favorite wannabe site, some cut and paste
    code that he could use to wipe out our forum.
    So now we have a new one. As you can see, it's
    still a bit "under construction". I don't know if I'll
    be able to import all of the old membership info,
    so you may just want to take a minute to sign up anew.
    Currently when you sign up you might get an error
    page, but disregard that. Despite the error page, it will
    send a confirmation link to the email address you entered.
    Click the link in the email you get to become a member
    of the new forum.

    This is one of three servers that I'm invloved with that
    were attacked this weekend. We are working with police
    in Romania, Russia, Poland, and the United States to get these
    little punks thrown in prison. I'm happy to report that we've already
    more or less identified the Romanian and with Romania's new hacking
    laws he could get up to 15 years. That's if he's lucky.
    The Rodney King beating is an everyday occurence in Romania
    so the cops there may just beat him senseless rather than bothering
    with the paperwork of arresting him.

    Hi, Ray (I hope!)
    I just upgraded myself to SuperFlyer, why not. I can't believe they did this...
    One note: As I shuffled back and forth from here to another site and back here again, the old hacker's message was up again, and instead of displaying the new Forum, I got the message instead!
    It's a possibility he's not gone... I've got the page saved, if it'll help any.

    That was probaly because I removed the redirection
    from the old URL to the new one for a minute while
    I was working on things. The twerp will probably try
    to find an exploit for this board too. Fine, that's just another
    criminal charge against him. We log everything.

    That's a damn shame that people have nothing better to do than ruin every body elses hard work!

    This is a great forum and I'm sure that it will come back around soon.

    I do hope they put those punks in prison, it will serve them right.

    Man, what a shame! There was a wealth of information on the old forum. Good news is, the information is still in the heads of the contribitors.

    Anything I can do to resurrect some old stuff of mine, just let me know.

    This is a great site and I look forward to checking in regularly. A terrific repository of knowledge.

    Keep the faith. This too shall pass.

    If these pieces of trash would use their talents for good rather than bad, just imagine...!

    Glad to see the forum back. I too was suffering from withdrawl. All that good info gone. What a shame.Hopefully it can be resurrected. I like the new look of the forum. Seems easier to read. Glad it's back.
    By the way, when I post it pops up an Apache error. The post goes through but the error pops up. You might end up with alot of double posts if not corrected. Hope this helps.

    And I was wondering why I was "Forbidden" from entering my favorite forum???

    Anyway, as to the hacker - Hang him, hang the bloody bastid, but not before we each partake in pummeling his miserable body with punishing blows!

    O.K., now I feel a bit better...
