Oh the Pain - Site content Loss

Having a lot of problems this morning, lost 10 days worth of content, someone wants a piece of the fishwrecked action.
If you could please post up your photos and forum topics again from the last week, Sean, Danny, Steves/Honsu, Andy, Big John that would be really appreciated. I will put the links to the videos up and any discussion that you think is pertinent.
If you have been a new member in the last week and a half, PLEASE SIGN UP AGAIN. Fishyink, Jamman and the guys, you haven't been deleted, its just that the backup wasn't done often enough.

Amazing how much stuff goes on this site in 9 days. I have setup the recipes and cooking forum, but of course, none of the recipes are there. If you guys could post them again that would be great.

I have the backup system set to every 2 days now. This won't be a problem again!

I was wondering what had happened. Thought I was in a version of the twilight zone for a minute.

These spammers are good, they just caused the CPU to overload meaning I had to call my U.S hosting service to sort it out. They can try but they wont beat me. I've got too much love to let this site die the way they want it too.

If you could post up your latest pics again guys that would be great. Please make sure that they are resized to under 200kb as to not put too much pressure on the CPU whilst these noobs try their crap.

Cheers,
Adam

good to see that you've got it under control Adam. Looks like you're going to have to split the latest content again?

Cancer

Wed, 2006-11-29 14:39

Those spammers are a cancer on our society. We should get a scalpel and cut a centimeter of their skin off for every spam mail they send, just like they do with real skin cancers....I should know, I am now sporting a 1 inch scar on my face from a skin cancer that was cut out today.

My pics and a new vid will be up again later tonight if I get a chance, actually it might have to be tomorrow night as I am going out tonight. (I'm looking a bit like frankenstein though at the moment so it should be fun)

Test results back next week so wish me luck!!!!

Cheers

Andy Mac

Hope all is ok Andy! Makes my little concern with my website nothing in comparison.

Yeh Jay, will have to get the image/forum thing sorted again. Hopefully won't be too difficult, just one of those things really.

I did have his email address, but it went with the loss of stuff. Trust me Fishyink I lost a lot more than you! Just very lucky that I was able to get the site up again otherwise it would have been like getting wiped from the planet for me! Im just so glad that you guys are still here because I would be devastated otherwise.

Thanks guys...

Wed, 2006-11-29 22:28

I certainly appreciate all your thoughts and well wishes.

First question I asked the doc as he was stitching me up was, "can I still go fishing?"

The answer was "yes", so I felt some immediate relief.

Lets hope I'll feel even more relief when he tells me the results next week.

As Pete B said its a bit of a wake up call. I might have to rescue the fluro shirt and matching arafat hat to get some more sun protection in future. At least Street will be happy with that.

And Adam you must keep the biggest wide brimmed hat available for me as I think the old baseball caps have done their dash for me after this episode.

Now back on point..... what do I need to load up again? Is the other vid still there behind the scenes or should I load it from here in the next couple of days. I don;t think you want too many vids up at one time so I will hold off a couple more days then slot it in.

Cheers

Andy Mac

Took much pain and swearing

Thu, 2006-11-30 13:35

Took much pain and swearing at the computer yesterday. One of the major things they do is run a script against the hosting server making heaps of comments, spamming their cpu, which causes the site to slow to almost impossible speeds and at times exceed the amount of cpu the hosting site allows each domain to have, causing load errors. I'm investigating ways to get around it, but for the moment will just have to bear with it.
Considering the growth of this site and the amount of hits its no real suprise that they are coming. Its just how to fend them off, but don't worry I'm onto it!

Thanks to you guys for coming back and putting up photos which were deleted and new content, very much appreciated.

Now that I have to approve accounts before they are activated I have managed to weed out the culprits who want to do this stuff. They have tried to create a few new accounts this week which I have been able to delete before they get onto the site. If you see email accounts from the address @mail.nov.ru make sure you delete them and dont respond.

Cheers,
Adam
