Site problems

Postby pete » Wed May 23, 2012 4:31 pm

Folks we've been experiencing attacks today from a multiple IP source.

I suspect it is a non welcome bot from a web searching facility - these are not from Google but from idiot companies trying to gather web info using non permitted site searching bots which effectively perform a DoS attack on the server by making 1000's of requests per minute.


Our programmer & I have been working on it and most of the problem has been repaired.

Please accept apologies for the problems which will be cured within the next 12 hours from this posting.
Think global. It's the world we live in
