It looked like a denial of service attack to me.

There's too damned many ports open on the site and it makes an attractive target.


Someone should check the record logs to see if this repeatedly happens on long weekends. Seems to me it does and whoever does the attack knows that Trev will not be around to fix it right away.

Ahhh!

His close family members are on the suspect list!

This concerns, not so much a problem, as an observation. I find it fascinating so I'd like to share.

In the past I've discussed with others what I call the CKA Censor Gnome. He mostly hangs out on the news page but I've heard others claim to have noticed him elsewhere.

Things just disappear - for me it's on the news page. There doesn't appear to be an explanation so I blame gnomes.

I've been told I have the wrong mythological being though. Apparently disappearing stories on the news page are a result of some unsourceable glitch in the software. Must be gremlins then, some suggest.

Another fascinating thing though is that for over a year it was like Gnomey just packed up and left his residence under the CKA bridge. Recently though he appears to have returned.

And he has a new bag of tricks. Things don't necessarily just permantly disappear now. They might just temporarily vanish during the day and reappear around midnight.

A more unreasonable individual might blame mods but I apply reason and can't come to that conclusion.

Today I notice two stories I posted last night on 2 canadian sports stars, golfer Brooke Henderson and footballer Alphonso Davies have vanished. I can't believe a moderator of a Canadian forum would be offended by those so I can only come to one rational conclusion.

It's a gnome.

I don't believe in gnomes... Farfadets would be my guess.

So many problems with the news entry thing, I don't even try it anymore. I just use New Topic and format it the way I feel

I get that too. Usually in topics that I created. Sometimes I'm green, usually not.

That's when I want to scream "HULK SMASH!"

Anybody else have problems getting on today. I got the normal SQL error when it's down but when I went to https://down.com/ it said it was down for just me and the site was full. WTF?
