It's working again.

Hmm, only half. I agree with Curtis. :angry:

It is painfully slow. We're on another server now since HostGator didn't like how much traffic we have. We're looking into other dedicated server options now.

This situation continues to be a big mess. Something has caused our resource usage to go through the roof. The web team is trying to see if we've been subjected to a brute force attack, maybe some kind of DDoS. We're also looking into a new dedicated server. Sorry for all the disruption guys!

In spite of the glitches that happen too regularly I enjoy using this site and find it easier to use than some of the other knife sites and like all things it could be better but considering that i imagine compared to other sites that are larger and perhaps get some income through advertising or paid subscriptions from trade users it runs remarkable well . I suppose you could look in the future to take a small charge for subscribed agents but I think that will have to wait a little or until the full blown pro model has gone global.

I don't know if it's related, but it seems the "guest" count gets pretty high, especially for a forum as specific as this one...

Most forums I visit seem to be in the hundreds at any time,,, this one is in the thousands. Even after coming back on after being totally offline yesterday,,, I happened to catch it right when it came back, and it showed over 500 people. Don't know what it is actually counting,,, just always struck me as weird.

Leo mentioned the same thing to me this weekend. That's why we're wondering about a brute force attack or something fishy in the code for the forum.
