    Email & Registration update

    Notification Emails - We're still working through an email blacklist issue, it seems to be clearing up but we're still a few days away from reliable notifications.

    Registration - New registrations are still closed, probably get that turned back on in a few days.

    Also, I don't think our server or database was "hacked", pretty sure the email activity that got us blacklisted originated somewhere else. We made some configuration changes to prevent this from happening in the future but they will take a few days to become effective.

    Thanks for your patience,
    Aneurysm

    Thanks for the update, and your care maintaining the site. =^..^=
    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.

    Re: Email & Registration update

    Thanks for the feedback Aneurysm. My only one concern was when site was down.
    Nevertheless you work towards right side.
    Never argue with an idiot. They will drag you down to their level and beat you with experience.

    Re. Hacked Emails from else where.
    I just had a software hack/bot go around my web browser locked down settings last night.
    The hack/ad-bot kill my IE browser and set up a hidden background Firefox browser window.
    The hidden browser basically trashes the unhidden/showing browser window with garbage form layout and ad-ware.
    I've been getting hidden process clash on my PC for about 3-4weeks the system has been slow to load.
    It sometimes take my firefox browser 6-7 mins to load up and display, and that is while using my 8 CPU lap top.
    The hackware overrides my network adapter settings even though I place a permanent fixed IP address into the network adapter.
    My WIFI is free for all and connects itself to my PC through my mobile phone on a totally unknown network connection.
    I have to turn off my WIFI else my wife and my phone battery runs down quickly.

    And so, my original point.
    If you are getting unsolicited email from my location, please advise me and I will spring clean my PC.
    It takes around 15-20mins to wipe over my laptop. I have the ISO image backup disc that I copy to my laptop at regular intervals. I do not wish for my PC to be used as part of a larger Domain distributive computer hacked network to attack other PC's.

    The old hack/bot-ware struggles with the on/off switch or backup copy, the hackers will never ever be able to get around that one.
    What if we could count the stars... , what number would you stop at...?"

    It's not you, it was something on our end.

    Re: Email & Registration update

    We're still working on our email issue but made some good progress today, hopefully we'll be back on track soon, more details after we actually get it fixed.

    The good news is, I'm learning a lot
    The bad news is, I'm learning a lot about things I had no desire to learn about

    Ouch, you know at certain age this can be slow and painful process. I'm having hard times myself when comes to learn things that're not interesting to me.
    Thank you for doing such a job.
