Sorry the site was so slow this morning

There was some company using Everest Connections for an ISP that was trying to download every page of every thread in every forum here - which in itself wouldn't be a problem...Google does it all the time...MSN does it...Yahoo does it. But these amateurs didn't bother to regulate their download at all - Google won't download more than 6 pages per second...these clowns were trying to get everything, all at once is seems icon25.gif

 

So now their entire network block is being dropped at the firewall. As far as they know, this website no longer exists HappyWave.gif

 

So I apologize, it took me a while to find out whom it was that was causing the problem - then to confirm that it wasn't a member here with an our of control web accelerator - but as soon as they were blocked, it only took about 15 minutes for everything to balance back out smile.gif
