2005-12-19 - Website Outage

I would like to apologize to everyone for the outage this weekend, I was out of town when the server went down and was not able to request a ticket to be rebooted from my service provider until late last night.

The website has needed a reboot a couple of times in the last few months, this has been caused by server flooding by archive bots, spam bots and other such bots that request 5 pages a second. So i will be spending some of my holidays putting in some stricter rules on the website to block all archivers and spam bots (as best I can anyway)

Once again sorry for the outage.
