    Oh I'm sure that just like any act of this kind, they're just attaching themselves to an issue, but the IPs caught in the logs do resolve to Syria. While they could be spoofed, and I may not know enough to know I'm spoofed, that's pretty damned crazy. Anonymous apparently hacked them back and released their IDs as well. All good fun, I suppose. We'd only ever have a maximum loss of a week in any case as I do backups, even if something catastrophic happened. And this is one of the reasons why I hosted the forum on a paid server (as is the rF Web site, etc) rather than anything in-house.

    Tablets and phones SHOULD load the mobile layout, which is quite nice on them. You can preview it by switching from Web to Mobile at the bottom left of the screen on your PC

    Tapatalk isn't working for me since the downtime, getting the message 'Failed to connect to forum, please check with the forum administrator if this problem persists'.

    Anyway, good job Tim with damage limitation and keeping things going :D

    Also, i really liked the blue theme, is there any way we can customise the colour scheme?

    If I could choose, i'd have dark background with white text like I have on other forums(some by default, some by choice).

    Though I run f.lux so the white doesn't bother me anyway. Without it it's very harsh on the eyes. Try it http://justgetflux.com/ It's especially good for night use before going to bed, I use it most of the time anyway. It might seem a bit strange at first but you get used to it and should notice a difference for the better.

    I think germs get mutated in different countries. My daughter brings stuff home, and passes it to me. Immune system of a child over here in the USA.

    I got this mail from notebook forum (which apparently I'm a member of? lol) about their hack:

    Don't know if they have uncovered something you havent Tim, but might be worth forcing a password reset, or should we not be worried?

    In the logs you could see exactly what they did, both in the server logs and the forum logs. They could have deleted stuff and didn't. You can reset if you feel like it, but bear in-mind the forum is not connected to anything else.

    If you know the owners, tell them to check NOTICES in the forum cp. Mine was different to how other vBs were affected that I read about, so I had to find it.
