    COYR down and up

    Post by RRC on Wed Oct 26, 2016 2:53 am

    COYR, along with our website host Forumotion and its 14,000+
    other websites, was down for 5-6 hours yesterday.

    Forumotion technicians are working to sort out their problems
    but the websites may go down again while these are resolved.

    They have apologized but haven't explained why this happened.

    To err is human, for a giant cock up you need a computer LOL roll

    It would appear I got my timing right yesterday as I accessed the site without trouble.

    Many thanks for the heads up RRC.

    Yesterday's problems were caused by a "major attack that had technical repercussions."
    No data was lost and everything seems back to normal.

    It was a denial of service attack. This is when the server is deliberately targeted with
    more traffic than it can possibly cope with and it's all too common these days.

    The internet seems to provide an ideal playground for some very stupid and nasty people,
    who can stay anonymous and cause havoc on a wide scale. Progress, eh?

    My providers email service has been down for two weeks. They keep getting it up and then it goes down again. No mail since the 10th form that email account.
