    Question

    I checked my e-mail yesterday, but didn't see anything unusual (I didn't open any e-mails up, either, just in case). But then when I went to come here, I got that stupid hacker message...grrrrrrr!!! Could just going to my e-mail page caused it?

    Caused what? I am a bit confused as to what you mean.

    If you are concerned that some virus or something came through your email or by logging into the forum, no they were ( I think - some young men/women) who were just being totally annoying and probably trying to freak everyone out, as it appears to have on Bhuz.

    Anatoliy & Salome I am sure have solved the issues of how they managed to hack into the site.

    If it is something else that worries you regarding email/logging into forum, can you explain , or maybe someone else will know what you mean

    Sorry to be so dense

    Oh dear, basically two days without the forums, how did I survive
    Well, at least life is never boring on these boards...
    I am so glad they left everything in place though.

That covers the license for the software, domain name, monthly hosting etc. Which we are certainly happy to pay! We were wondering though if any of the members would be up for donating a bit toward this additional 120 expense. Let us know your thoughts.
    Salome,

    How many people use this forum? I bet if you set up a paypal account for forum expenses you will easily make $120, maybe even the whole $700. This is truly a service you provide and I for one would gladly donate $10-$20 once in a while to help keep it going.

    Salome, wasn't it possible, not so long ago, to donate via PayPal? In any case, I'm ready to make a small contribution!

    Bad hackers... bad bad bad

I contacted the VBulletin team (we run our forum on their software) - hope the hole will be found and fixed before those losers come back again. It looks like after they hacked the forum they sent e-mails to all our members. Sorry about that.
    I know - I was really shocked when I logged in. Good job with fixing it!
