    Thumbs up xjTalk.com

    The board is currently being run at a reduced bandwidth capacity. As things build (more people get on) I will adjust the bandwidth accordingly.

    If you notice pictures are slow to load, or the board is just unbearablly slow send me a private message and I'll adjust it.

    Thanks for visiting, and I hope you make xjTalk.com your new Jeep XJ home.

    I'm finding the site is off line a lot and sometimes stalls for a time.

    We have had several DDos (Denial of service attacks). I have put things in place to limit how effective these attacks are. This includes a custom written program that takes defensive actions to basically put the server in protect mode.

    While the server is in protect mode you will not be able to access the system. Hopefully that only lasts about 5 minutes, or less.

    My hopes are that eventually the attacks will stop. Please keep in mind that is the server isn't available, or very slow it is because of these attacks and not anything we really have any control over.

    Very large sites defend from these attacks by having very high bandwidth connections to the Internet. We are just a small poor Jeep site.

    Thanks for the heads up Tony. That sort of thing annoys me (the attackers), but we can but just plug on.

    I can fully understand those reasonings for the minor interruptions in services.. can't blame you for wanting to block attacks.. Nothing annoys me more than have a site that I enjoy being attacked, especially when the attackers are working on completelying messing up or bringing the site down for whatever reasons.. We used to have folks always trying to hack the other site I was a member of the staff on.. once we started having round the clock staff coverage.. we were able to keep up with IP's that were similar or close to each other around the times the attacks were going on.. and were eventually able to narrow down the general area the attacks were coming from.. and then blocked those IP's.. it was complete stupidity that is for sure.. I know what kind of work goes into keeping a site running smoothly.. and you and the staff are doing a great job Tony!!

    I can't get to it either. I don't usually access the site with Tapatalk. I'll keep looking into it.

    I have found tapatalk to be very unreliable. I usually have to wait until I can get to my computer. When it does work it is way too slow. I would not recommend it to anyone who had other ways to access the site..
    Hey bubba get your hand off my ass,

    Some days it is just not worth it to gnaw through the leather restraints.
