I'm sort of thinking. the springs forward, bounces like rubber., cartoon fashion.
The the prop then, at speed, rolls in from right to left and quickly slows down in final position...... too much?

I can send jpg if that's any use...

I tried a few times this morning to access the site but all I got was a page saying ACCOUNT SUSPENDED now OK what was that all about? Was it my account or the whole site suspended by the web hosts?

Sorry about the disruption today but after some heated discussions we do seem to be getting somewhere this time.

Country to some of you naysayers out there, it actually turns out, it's not my fault... it's yours!

As Mayhem is quite popular, the site is very attractive to @#%{&]@[@d's who want to break in and floor the Forum with crap!!! This is overloading the server to the point were it can't cope any more, gives up and falls over, which then send alarm bells to the Hosting company and their response is just switch everything off, without telling me!

I have to leave the forum off-line for now as I'm in correspondence with the Hosting company to see what can be done.

Thanks for your patience everyone.
 Regards,
  Martin

I'm finding a hell of a surge in chinese state hackers trying to get onto Trawlerphotos , when the Yanks complained publicly about them 3 months ago they went offline ( spam accounts went down to 10-12 a day ) now they're back in full swing I'm seeing up to 120 spam accounts set up per day. I block spammers by IP address , Email and just started blocking the random character names they use which is slowing them down a lot.

They took Trawlerphotos down 3 times last year for a few days at a time then took the site completely off line needing 6 weeks of work by the guys in Denmark to get it back up and running , personally I'd love a huge meteorite to slam into their office buildings and shut them down for good !!!!!

Martin,
 
Not my area of expertise however would not a host be aware of DOS attacks.
Wikie, quite rightly says how it all can occur but not what preventative measures are available to the host.
 
Or doesn't the host care/able and leaves it up to you, the customer.
 
Do you know if we have our "own" dedicated server or do we share a server.
 
Get the impression that these 'attacks', for want of a word, seem to occur around the same time frame.
 
Also, it seems to be affecting the membership, in that, some members are not posting as often and some seem to be 'missing'.
 
Ah the joys of being in demand  O0 O0 and most popular kid on the block. :-)) :-)) %% %%
