It's definitely more of a thing now - because you get all these kids who are 15 years old and too silly to know better and think it's funny to attack random websites...

Thanks for your observations guys.

I'm not quite sure why, but this forum and GPU72 have been seeing some very interesting (hostile) activities recently...

It's always interesting, in so many ways, having a "presence" on the Internet....

What's kind of fucked is if they took any time at all to read up about the project, they'd find much, much more damaging ways to cause harm than preventing access to the server.

That would take effort, though!

Thank [blip] for that!



P.S. I've been searching for an atheist equivalent for the turn of phrase "Thank God" to no avail for years. Does anyone know of one?

I like "Thank the almighty Atheismo" but it doesn't have the same ring as "Thank God"

Thank FSM! (Not exactly atheistic, but generally gets the point across.)

Although not atheist, I sometimes use "Thank the Universe".

I'm not atheist, but "thank goodness" sounds like a decent alternative. Or just throw in a cuss word to make it sound like you don't believe in God.

I'm an atheist, but still object to blasphemy (as avid readers of my posts will have noticed).
I particularly object to OMG.

PS I see that WTF is considered perfectly acceptable and common here, and I don't mean "What Trial Factoring" bit level.

Merry Christmas!

I hope Santa can get all that firepower you asked for down the chimney

Although of course it isn't really needed for TF
