At the bottom of the Board Index screen of the forum you will find the line:

Most users ever online was 333 on Wed Oct 05, 2016 7:21 pm

This is an extremely unusual and large number for this forum only ever normally seen in moments of high crisis and excitement, and not usually anywhere near this large. It might have been a spam or denial of service attack or someone who set up an automatic logon routine that looped ... I was just curious.

No out of the loop a little this week so not really here to address complaints and registrations let alone reported posts sorry.

Back on the ball at the weekend.

Half the number of the beast. Should we be worried?
Ah, but I was so much older then. I'm younger than that now.

I have made some configuration changes that hopefully will now reduce this rather silly effect.
