Just FYI for anyone who had problems reaching the site Saturday - the server was overloaded thanks to a spambot that was hammering away (like a DDOS). I've blocked it now.

As I run my own forums, I can commiserate, Bug. It's been so bad I've had to remove open registration, and force you to prove you're not a bot by finding my email (or that picture of it) and convince me personally that you're a human, and not a troll at that. Kinda cuts down the member numbers, but at least they're all real and high quality.

Seems like a lot of this is going around of late...
