    I'm going thru tuning issues right now. GN may be offline/online here and there while I make adjustments. May slow down also.. etc.

    Glad to read this. The site has been very slow to load and at least I know why.

    Thank you for your continuing maintenance on this site!!!

    Looks like I had an influx of Chinese hackers. So I blocked a huge segment of China from the server.

    That explains why I got 8 unintelligible foreign language messages in the inbox the other day....

    I didn't open any, but I don't know how to delete them.

    We were not hacked, it was more like an attempt for a denial of service attack. So I went thru logs and watched realtime to see where the traffic was coming from. Alot of China. So, block all of China.

    Several days ago, I tried to post a reply to 1-Pat's question here - https://www.gunsnet.net/showthread.p...er-this-please
    Tonight, I tried to PM 1-Pat. Didn't get the "Leave Page" box but DID get the "Forbidden" malarkey.

    I also haven't been able to upload a picture from my computer to the Random Photo thread for 2-3 months.
