It was a disappointment because I had done a lot of research with some vintage folks and when the time came, experienced some unexpected surprises. For example, we found what appear to be California redwood shims between the Henschen axle brackets and the trailer frame that appear to have been factory installed. That was a pleasant surprise as I had anticipated having to compensate for the 1"rise on the new Dexter axle brackets which wasn't necessary.

Going on a tangent here (perhaps a cul-de-sac)....

I have similar trouble sometimes when I'm using my laptop. It's not a problem with the newly implemented software on this web site. Instead, it seems my fumble-fingers accidentally hit some series of keys and the screen just goes blank. For that reason I've started composing threads/posts/messages using a separate text editor and then copy & paste into my thread/post/message.

At the risk of stating the apparent -- [edit -- similar to the previous post's advice]

You can always compose a message in Word etc., and then copy and paste it into the forum, which will use a default font etc..

A drag to have to do this, but it would work. It also lets the author edit and correct things before posting, use spell-check, etc..

Another Plus to this approach is that you end up with your own document on your own computer, which can become the basis for further additional information, like an owner's manual of sorts . . .

So far BitDefender has not found anything bad actually running on my Mac, though it has pounced on some infected SPAM, for which I'm grateful. That's exactly the kind of thing I wanted, as it helps prevent infection via clicking on links or opening evil attachments. BitDefender also offers a "Traffic Light" extension for your browsers, which you should install along with BitDefender. That extension helps warn you if you visit a known bad site or one that's questionable.

BTW, I do *not* have a "blame PC's" or "blame Windows" mentality. With proper protection from attack, those tools are wonderfully helpful to have. In fact, I run Windows on my Mac (via Parallels) and on a laptop at home. Bottom line, I don't believe Mac is in any sense "safer" or "less vulnerable" than Windows. I choose not be complacent and use some form of protection from the bad guys on all my computers.

I can't speak to the details of the Cloudflare DDOS protection (because I don't know exactly how they're doing it), but I would guess that any difficulty with multiple posts is similar to the difficulty some have had with single posts. When the DDOS attack finally dies down, things should return to normal.

Everything seems back to usual, so I am assuming the DDoS attack is over - thanks Janet and the other mods for doing their best to keep us safe!

I do look forward to the day of Skynet and we can send a Terminator to pay a visit to the offending bastards. I'd like to see their faces as Arnold comes through the computer at them. glasses and all.

Any chance of getting their address, so we could all send them a bloody thank you very much card ourselves and swamp their bloody network.

Thanks to the site team and mods for all your work, hopefully no sensitive information was released.

Cheers
Tony

Skynet (and Borg) would be coming after us as well, unless you happen to be a machine, of course.

Best to let well enough alone. I'd rather disappear into the inky blackness of the Interweb than stick my head up and yell "Hey! Check out my IP address! Come and get me."

It's summer, the script kiddies have nothing better to do than run someone else's scripts to aggravate the adults. I feel sorry for them.

Is this better or worse than a burning sack of dog poop on the front porch?

Better than burning dog poop. Worse than having your trees festooned with toilet paper.

But "script kiddies" aren't necessarily kids. They're wannabe hackers without the talent to write their own code, so they use code that has been written by real hackers. Most are young, but could be up to about college-age.

If you experience lost posts, before you try to post, copy the post (on a Mac, first do command-A to select the whole post, then command-C to copy). Then if the post is lost, transfer the copy by command-V to insert it. No need to write in a word processing program that way.

Folks this is once again a necessity and we apologize for the slow downs. The check browser message is provided by a service the helps keep the forum online during a DDOS attack. Your individual systems are not in jeopardy but access to the forum is being slowed down by a malicious attempt to crash the server. Thanks for your understanding
