Just like with Bobby Ewing a few decades back with the TV show Dallas.
I may be right.  I may be wrong.  But there is a lot of gray area in-between.

Because I know you all were completely lost without me, I'd like to announce that I will be frequenting the forum again.  I just couldn't handle/get used to the other one.

I hope that our old issues can be resolved.

apparently a bunch of teens decided to mob the server, i heard they used twitter and facebook to organize it.
KC Region is all part of the same animal regardless of state and county lines.
Think on the Regional scale.

Someone took advantage of the fact that our webhost doesn't support such advanced features as "disabling FTP."

Honestly, I don't think it was a person. I think it was a bot that just spiders around, exploiting weak security configs. I've changed the password to a very long, nonsensical string of text. According to our esteemed web host, that's all I can do.

What kind of monthly transfer does the rag see, and how big is the db? I have a dual dual-core Opteron with 1.5Tb that will be going in a rack in the not-terribly-distant future.

The DB is about 1GB in size, uncompressed. I'd need to look at the traffic numbers though.

I still have hosting for other stuff I'd be happy to let the site use again...for some reason I thought Bahua despised dreamhost though.
