Apologies if users found the forum slow yesterday. Initially assumed to be a server issue, it was discovered to be a DoS attack from Singapore.
They were locked out about 7pm last night (11/05) with a group IP block, at which point the forum returned to normal.

Unfortunately tonight we appear to have also had multiple access attempts from a known malicious bot source in Amsterdam. Again it's blocked.
We hope they all enjoy playing nicely out on the porch in the cold  snow

Let's hope silly season is over...
