Exclamation Four Thirds User - currently being operated on!

FTU's bowels are being operated on at the moment!

So please don't be too concerned at all sorts of worrying errors if you try to visit the site.

We know all about it.

I hope to report a return to some kind of normality after the successful implementation of upgrades soon!

Ian

Re: Four Thirds User - currently being operated on!

Some good news - the forum at FTU is now back up and as you will see it's all-new.

Basically it's still a work in progress and there may well be interruptions and bugs to fix in the coming days but we're now making progress!

Work on FTU will eventually be applied to this site and the forum at dpnow.com.

TapaTalk has been re-enabled though of course, the forum is no smartphone and tablet friendly all by itself.

Correct Henry. It seems to have suffered a hacker attack. No doubt all will be well again eventually. We live in hopes

Re: Four Thirds User - currently being operated on!

OK - looking at this - thanks for the heads-up.

Ian

PS We have just updated a lot of the server OS for FTU, so I will be very disappointed if it's malware; more likely to be a config problem.

Re: Four Thirds User - currently being operated on!

It's in the process of being resolved - an embarrassing double-whammy; the domain expired yesterday but I didn't see any reminders, plus, the credit card on the account had also expired! D'oh!

It should be back a soon - though DNS server propagation can vary.

Much apologies,

Ian

It's been featuring pornographic video games most of the day, in vivid detail, so the current offerings being displayed, re- the domain expiry, are probably an improvement

Re: Four Thirds User - currently being operated on!

I can see FTU on my phone over BT Mobile data now but not yet on the virgin land line ISP connection, but it's getting there
