Forum in troubles!
« on: Nov 11th, 2004, 1:53pm »
For the past few weeks, this forum was under heavy attack from the bloody MSNbot, a beta version of Microsofts new MSNsearch crawler.
I have now taken counter measures: MSNbot is banned.
Maybe the forum will no longer be listed on MSNsearch now.
I don't worry much about that fact, as everyone with an IQ above 50 should be aware that Microsoft is not a company to trust on.
Shame on you, Mr. Gates!
The second problem is the topic notification service ("notify of replies")
There seems to be a serious bug in it, as a few days ago, all topic notification subscriptions were lost.
The board notification ("notify of new posts") and the mailinglist is not affected.
You may renew your subscriptions (if any) but unless the bug is fixed, they may disappear again.
I plan to update the forum software, but this may take a few weeks.....
