Dear all,

just to avoid any rumour spreading, because I know some of you worry when something's not running the "usual way".

Just to let everybody know, and I know who's reading this might be a tad more than "just" interested: YES I've installed a brand new security system - and for good reasons. Believe it or not, this site is under constant attack - I've had 100 security alerts for this day alone.

So you can imagine that it is indeed necessary to protect it the best I can. IF this means that you'll get problems visiting this site I have to take this "disadvantage" for some to have the benefit of security for the majority of visitors and I hope for your understanding in this matter.

The log-in won't be affected, once you are hit by problems they are more of the "I cannot access the site at all" kind please don't hesitate to contact me. I will install an error page with my e-mail contact so if it happens to you, just gimme a sign and I shall do my best to get you back on-line with www.nathanielparker.com . Cannot say if I'll manage it that minute, but I promise to help you ASAP.

In the meantime enjoy and have fun here!

Cheers!

Hi Jessika,

I had problems yesterday getting on, but figured it was because I had been on 2 hours with a tech in India trying to install a new printer, and he changed my UAC settings.

I kept getting a box that said only "admin". I just closed it out and got in anyway, but it happened every time I went to any place, i.e., home, forum, but I persisted and it was ok.

No prob at all today.

Thanks for the warning info.

Hugs.

Pat

Don't worry Pat,

Greetings

yeah,

that admin dialogue thing must have been gone by this early morning - it was a part of the hardening process for the website. Sorry again to have bothered you with that. Anything else you might run into, please let me know.

Cheers!
