    Default Forum Downtime

    Hi guys,

    The forum has been up and down the past few days due to us getting DDoS attacks. So I've enabled a few security features and one of them is the 5 second annoying page you see every 5 minutes or so (I'll relax that once I've enabled a few other things).

    I apologise on behalf of the script kiddie and / or pleb doing this. He will soon run out of botnet cash as his mummy will put a stop to his pocket money before too long.

    Things will be back to normal early next week.

    Thanks for understanding.
