Arnold? Eric? Fred? Is that me? Hello? Anyone there? <fiddle>  :zap:

Sorry, I may be confusing me with someone else....

Today, _everything_ has gone wrong, I even managed to totally zap my laptop harddrive, which I didn't realise until I rebooted and it wouldn't come back up  :bugeye:

2 days work down the river  :Doh:

Hi Pete,

You're probably right, but for the time being, I am quite happy to take on the burden. Once the site has been stable for a while, we'll re-evaluate costs.

To give you some idea, the plan I'm looking at costs 210 for 5 years... that's about 81p a week... hardly worth dipping into anyone else's pocket for that little; plus knowing the generosity of the model engineering guys, I reckon we'd end up so far in surplus we'd have a big pile of cash washing around with nothing to do.... IMHO that's too big a risk to take with other people's money.

Fair enough mate but don't be afaid to ask if it gets dearer (as things seem to do) I see your point though the option is there.
Pete

oops..........oh no.........blast now I need to redo it

Not just you Jerry, me too.  Or maybe it's just us.

The server continues to prove troublesome.

I now have some webspace to move the site onto, going to give it a go next week.

Unfortunately, I was out all day hence the long downtime, it's back now.
Cheers!

Good luck with the move these things are never simple.

Honestly, this bl**dy server, if it was a physical machine I would take great pleasure in smashing it into a million pieces with a hammer (after moving the forum off it of course!)

Trying to fix it *again* now.
Cheers!

All.

The web host for MEM is under DDOS attack - currently all the Linux Shared Platform where MEM is hosted is down...  We'll just have to wait for them to sort it out  :coffee:.

Kind regards, Arnold
---------------
First Reported: Wednesday 25th February at 15:26

We are experiencing issues on our shared services due to a DDOS attack on our network.

The servers are running and all customer sites and VPS products are present and accessible however the attack may produce very slow response times. If you are experiencing this please refresh your page and try again.

Our engineers have been working on restoring service to full access since the issues first developed and should have this resolved soon.

We will keep this page posted with ongoing updates


Update 15:36
Our Linux Shared Platform is currently offline while we isolate the attack, so websites and FTP will be unavailable.

Other platforms and services are up and running, but will be experiencing slower speeds.

If any customers experience time-outs connecting to email, please do not reset your email passwords. The error will most likely be due to time-outs connecting to the mail platforms due to the attack, so wait until the all-clear before changing settings.

Next update will be no later than 16:00

Update 16:00

No Further update at this time, the situation is still in progress.

Next update will be no later than 16:30

Just a quick note...

MEM is currently down, as one of the websites co-existing on the server where it is hosted has been infected with a BotNet.
The issue has been reported to the hosting ISP, and we are waiting for them to sort things out.

Kind regards, Arnold

Problem resolved  :D

Jo, it's easy - just switch off the computer(s) and other mobile devices - then you can have as much time as you like with the new fella  :headbang:

Kind regards, Arnold
