lol. phil I recomend holding your hand out and seeing if you can keep its steady before posting. simply way to make sure you don't post when your high on caffine. (I tend to overdue my coke intake now and then)

On an interesting note, of all possible sites for hackers to observe the AKA(American Killifish Association) had there website hacked recently(solved now Smile ). Maybe some kind of hacker gang terrorizing aquarium related sites.... Laughing :

Surprised A rampage?! Unfortunately, this is no longer in the hands of the Yellow llama's (some funding issues, darn tax), so information on who's upto all this mischief has become hard to come by. However, I have a sneaking suspicion that it may be the COG group (that is Collection Of Geeks) just trying to prove that they really don't have a life, incase anyone was thinking otherwise Confused .

Those pills are taking their time.......

trill I don't think sugar pills are going to help your situation. maybe some large animal tranquilizers.

Today I made a quick and dirty fix until we fully address this issue. Based on recent information that a vulnerability existed in the "viewtopic.php" module of the phpBB2 script, I just went and replaced this module from version 2.0.4 with the one from 2.0.11 and everything seems to be in order.

I know the computer geeks will be outraged at this sloppy work, but at least I tested it before on a dummy board Wink

In any case, let me know if you notice anything strange or different while you're viewing topics...I couldn't see any difference.

Maybe said computer-cyborg-person mix (according to Trill) was so upset by the fact that his website wasn't as cool as all the aquarium sites. His plan is prolly once all the aquarium sites have been hacked and destroyed, people will have nowhere to go but to his website.

Byez!

P.S. Don't worry, Trill. The FADAH (the Federation for the Annihilation and Destruction of Aquarium Haters) already put a plan in motion to destroy this terroristic group of aquarium hating psycho-maniacs. Your suspicion about the COG was correct, however we believe it was one of their smaller affiliate cells, the LANs (Lonely Anti-fish Nerds) who actually put this horrid hack into action.

*kcshh* Up to "aquamarine attack" on mauve code with a level blue follow up *kcshh*
