Jake and I BOTH experienced weirdness with the forum today. It was down for most of the day with a weird error message. Then it got replaced with a ww.syspage.com page, I had this forum as my homepage. I set it back, but I kept getting this page that siad my computer was being followed or scanned.
I don't know about all the funny things, but actually the problems weren't bandwidth related.
The forum just broke itself and unfortunately, it can't fix itself, so unless I'm at the helm, the forum will remain broken until I fix it. Fortunately, fixing it was quick and painless...at least the second time it broke.
It was MySQL database errors, not the first time that's happened, but to my knowledge, there's no way to prevent the forum from breaking itself. At least it occurs infrequently and is easily repaired.
Sorry for the downtime. I don't know about the syspage.com thing - that sounds like a different website set itself as your homepage when you were browsing somewhere else.
We might be going down for bandwidth sometime this week, but I'll try to keep an eye on that.
Marej, just to let you know the syspage.com page that you were getting is what is called a homepage hijacker and it will cause your system to do all kinds of weird stuff. But Adaware is a good free tool to get rid of stuff like that so good choice there. But i would say it probably had no relationship to this websight you usually get those from websites that try and get you to download all kinds of free stuff. Just an FYI!
