forum was down
« on: December 03, 2017, 09:57:34 PM »

On Dec-01 or so i sent out that notification of a new topic to get more members to come and vote on the contest.
When i did that it sent 1000 emails in less than 15 seconds, hosting firewall i guess nuked the whole Group domain folder somehow.

Support has added my IP address (or hosting address of the forum server) to the whitelist so i can send notifications.
Granted, it will be a cold day in hell before i ever send another topic announcement.

I am sorry for the inconvenience. Been dragging my ass around here trying to figure everything out. Once again, Sir Osis has saved the day.

Thank you Sir Osis.

I thought it was strange getting a email to vote for the cab contest.

Yeah Randy and I wracked our Brains as to what had happened.
First we thought we had been hacked.
Thankfully it wasn't a hack job.  Instead it was Server security going stupid.
Sir Osis can do things that Randy and I just don't know how to do.  He is amazing.

All the thanks goes right to sir osis, he found the backup on the server i couldn't locate.  I couldn't even find the area the forum is installed. I know where it is now,  but regardless,  sir osis will have control in the server. even if it takes a couple days to receive my messages.
