Re: Upcoming server migration

I just had another crack at the emails, but I keep coming up against brick walls. I won't be able to get to it tomorrow either so hopefully will get to it over the weekend.

Re: Upcoming server migration

Seems to have gone successfully this time. Welcome to the new digs. This server is now based in the States, Seattle I think, so might be a bit faster for the top half of the world(?) I've also upgraded the forum version hence the slightly update skin. Let me know if you spot anything funny. I've sti...

Re: Request for help in a Quixotic quest against a useless Microsoft dialog

That's a good site. It's better than the incumbents like Rosetta Stone and Babbel at dealing with the challenges of rough - rather than exact - translation. Also seems to have a decent Dutch capability, which is really hard to find. Hartelijk bedankt!

Server hacked - spam spewed forth

One of the other sites I run on this server has been hacked (second time). I've deleted the website now, but a lot of damage has been done to the IP address's reputation and a lot of email owners - such as Gmail - won't be touching my server with a ten foot pole. I've just fished something out of th...
