Can't we employ Cody to stand beside the server with the electronic equivalent of a crowbar to bash any other idiots over the head if they try in future  :trout: :trout: :trout:

Ah, I see another fan of Monty Python.

I too would like to offer my congratulations on returning DC to operational status.  I know what its like to have something go completely belly up.  So to all y'all (sorry)  have a giant virtual cold one on me.

Cheers

d00d, u not 1337!

I thank you for assuring me that I am not merely a number, esp. this number...

1337
1337
 
Definition number 3 (3415 thumbs up, 1337 thumbs down) :

 n. 1. Nestled between 1336 and 1338, 1337 is commonly known as a number, or for the more advanced; an "integer"

2. Often misused to satisfy a lamen's ego, the self-proclaimed 1337 will misuse the title, pretending to hold Xtr3m H4x0r capabilties while in fact masturbating to preteen beastiality at 2:00 AM with baggy eyes; anonymously hassling n00b's with better things to do than kill their babies over mindrot such as Everquest and Warcraft. See also "colon debris" and "queefstain"
 


- but I guess the short version is that they were not really saying anything...  ;)

I join all others in condemming the attack and saying a big thank you to Mouser, gothic, and all others who got it back on its feet. And while I'm at it: a big thank you to all who run this site even when all is smooth.

I just figured it was residual shakes from withdrawal symptoms.  My twitch is slowly receding. :P

I am singing in the choir that praise our return to the site  :-*

And mouser its allowed to be angry on the attack itself, but not on you and your staffs handling of the incident...prof done, thanks!  :Thmbsup:
(said because you felt guilt in another thread....if that should carry truth, we better close down the net and give it to all those nasty human bugs out there >:( )

this has been a terrible and terrifying week for me given the unavailability of the forums. anyway, just absolutely delighted to see that Cody and his cohorts back at work. and i'd like to take this opportunity to wish a big thank you to mouser, gothic and rest of the maintenance team. :Thmbsup: :Thmbsup: :Thmbsup:

Great to have the site back online.  I missed it! 

Thanks to everyone responsible for the restoration and hardening of the server to help avoid future problems.   :up:

your link was fine EXCEPT it had a "u=####" part in it, which, as was surmised in replies, will only work for you (you are user id=####).  so you just remove the "u=####" stuff and it will work fine.

By the way there is also a shortcut way to link to donate to someone, as illustrated in your profile page for Donation Buttons, which shows you how to put a button on your website so people can donate to you.

It looks like this (for jazper): http://donationcoder.com/donate/195

[offtopic]I see, mouser. I think that all donation links should look like that. I got that one from jazper's profile where apparently my uid was attached to that link. [/offtopic]
