Hi All,

A quick update on why the forum has been inaccessible over the past 24 hours. Apparently, we have experienced a DDoS attack. A distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attack is a malicious attempt to disrupt the normal traffic of a targeted server, service or network by overwhelming the target or its surrounding infrastructure with a flood of Internet traffic.

This forum and the German forum have been impacted. The Gardner will have more informed info (I am simply recounting what he told me yesterday). Apologies for the inconvenience.

The attack is currently continuing at a manageable rate for the ISP. However, this means that we may experience further outages over the weekend.
