That negative balance looked desperate! So I chucked $7 in - £5.96 in old money! I may not post much but I do love this forum......thanks.

Oh, and btw - I won't worry myself about that 'not secure' message either......it's still up there, staring at me!

During summer we were seeing a lot of registrations from dodgy email accounts so we put in measures to reduce this as dealing with is was getting really tedious.
On behalf of Mottza and I, we'd like to thank you for giving us half an hour of our lives back every day. :lol: 8-)

icon_clap.gif Thank you everyone we are in the green! icon_clap.gif

And I believe I have discovered the bad bot that was causing the issue, I have banned it's IP range, we'll see what effects that has as I was still seeing spikes in server load.

Belatedly fronting up to the bar. Bloody hell! The pound doesn't buy many dollars these days! Worth every penny for a non facebooker!
I wake up every morning with a smile upon my face,
My natural exuberance spills out all over the place!
