    Me too and I'm embarrassed to say I tried to log into it at first. Then I realised it must have been a password stealer or something. There was a domain at the top called something like muckypaws.com

    Would any admins like to comment on this, it looks like your IIS server was owned.

    I just got a message saying that I was not authorized to view the page.

    Thought it was a bit strange. Like stringster I thought maybe security at work had blocked it. Glad to find that wasn't the case though - what else would I do with my lunchtimes! hehe

    Yeah but the worrying thing is the security dialogue had a domain that was nothing to do with this site, so I think their IIS server was compromised (the next page was an IIS server error page). So as a precaution I suggest you change your password if you tried to log in (either here or you thought it was your work proxy server and entered that).

  15. AMD own this site..

    It did look a little odd that the domain name had been redirected to their corporate site, especially when emails to them were bouncing due to a full inbox! i got all panicky about the potential lack of my daily AS.net fix, and started mailing round! (sorry guys! /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/blush.gif )

    Glad all is ok today!

    Spotted the AmD link-through too... had a bit of a browse... they're still more expensive then a lot of other people! Noticed they are now selling the AWE DTS's... I got mine for approx. £40 less than they are selling them and yes, I did get it in the UK /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smirk.gif

    Be careful there you'll go giving people the wrong idea... the forum is hosted by AmD nothing more. Was more than a bit of a surprise to me though, AmD is next to AS.net in my favorites so I thought I'd clicked on the wrong one at first!

    AMD is next to AS.net on my favourites too, so I thought I had also clicked on the wrong one. A few tries later and I was thinking oh no! what if AMD have pulled the plug on the server for good, I was about ready to jump off the roof.

    AmD own the domain name, and proved server space and bandwidth. Technically they own the site.

    But it's really ours......

    I'm not 100% about this (ownership of site as the registered address etc...) but as the Admins have said over and over again the site has no connection with AmD other than they helped out by hosting the site when things went pear-shaped a while back.

    You are correct it's the people that make this site what it is - which is good! /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/beerchug.gif

    One more time for those hard of understanding.

    Adam owns the site...
    Adam owns the server it's hosted on...(or at least did...unless he's moved it)
    Adam part owns AmD.

    Adam leaves the running of the site to the Admin and Mods...but we don't pay him anything for the hosting...
    We run it...for free, it costs the Admins and Mods nothing to host it as Adam does that for free.

    So AmD don't own the site...a part owner of AmD does....that is not the same as AmD owning it.

    Just a guess here, but i'd say they were working on the server for whatever reason, and it got late.

    Their main priority therefore was to get AmD's bread-and-butter site up and running...

    look for a new job that hasn't blocked a-s.net?

    or you could just find a proxy server to use... its impossible for them to ban pages then, only proxy software that performs dictionary scans on pages can then block sites (like symantec web security)...
