Why after the forum was hacked last week, I deleted all shortcuts etc, and then logged in through an old post, could I get in and noticed posting sfrom all week? :!:
I have been programming on computers since the ZX81.

I have been repairing computers since 1996.
Yet to some people I still know nothing...

Was wondering why the site was (and is yet) so 'quiet' the past week! Hope it was just a breach and no spawn of virus left behind!

Various pages are still down, I actually quite like Quorthon though.
The hacker celebrates is crimes on his facebook wall.
I reported it to Facebook and they don't do anything despite this clearly being against their community standards.
I have now left the Building :tongue8:
