    You may want to check with some of your banking and credit card accounts to see if someone has tried to access them. Identity thief trick, they will try to break into a forum site in the hope that you use the same or similar password elsewhere.

    We're seeing this at some other forums. Each time I try to login I am forced to do the security procedure. Some bot makes repeated attempts to logging in. So far I am not aware of any security breeches. =^..^=

    If you'd like a serious answer to your request:
    1) demonstrate that you've read the manual
    2) demonstrate that you made some attempt to fix it.
    3) if you're going to ask about jams include the jam code.
    4) if you're going to ask about an error code include the error code.

    No problems with CTN hackers my way.

    I just let the hackers come and go. The @ssholes have updated the firmware on my broadband modem, removed my modem firewall software and locked me out of updating the modem firmware for ever... I use a software fireware though.

    I have to buy a new modem soon in anycase...

    All's fair in love and firm-wars....

    What if we could count the stars... , what number would you stop at...?"

    Same here. I googled the IP, it's part of the Tor network.

    Dear Hardcopy,

    the 91.109.247.173 is the public IP for United Kingdom, do you stay in UK?
    may be you a wrong time zone on your Router
    go to your web browser and search for "public ip"

    please tell let me know which ip address you have found.
    it should be at the starting lines of the search result page.
