As of Today March 10,I have been forced to close the registration process.
Yesterday, Five registrations were made by one person and we have some information about a potential Hack to close SPC down.
we are not taking this lightly. So for the foreseeable future the registration process is disabled.
We are taking this measure to protect SPC & its members from a potential situation of data loss.
I have made sufficient backups and we have the ability to restore the entire site if anything goes down.

We are very sorry to have to announce this.

That's very sad to hear. Why would someone attack a harmless forum like SPC? I've seen other forums I've been a member of hacked in the past just because. Some people.

if not ,good catch there Andy.

It's behaviour like this that'll ruin forum and internet activity for us all.

Glad I registered just in time.
Sad but true. Some people hack forum sites just for fun and some for their own gain.
Thank you Andy for continously monitoring and more power to SPC!

Cheers!
Gene

Hi M1CRO! Not sure if my PM went through, but below is what I tried to send. It's still in outbox for some reason. I can't see any send button even though I have sent someone else a PM before. If it is stuck can someone PM M1CRO for me please? :mrgreen: Just in case he doesn't read this message!

Don't know if you have noticed this or if my timing is spot on. Haha! Just that I don't usually look in the Announcments section. But I noticed the birthdays today & three users had all turned 41. I thought this was a bit odd so I look at theirs profiles & they're all the same, with no posts at all. All joined on 22nd January 2011 & actual age should make them 101yrs old! Could be harmless, I don't know, just thought you might want to check this out. Anyway, the user names are OeLkf95, UeEcm08 & YeZlq10
Cheers!
Brae

Glad that I registered on time. Unfortunately there are people (i don't know if they deserve to be considered people) who have nothing useful to do and one of the few things they learn in life, is how to make other people's life complicated. So sad about the news and thank you for taking care of the forum.

Regards,
José Antonio
