I honestly haven't left it run long enough to hear the noise...just the start of what sounds like some middle eastern music.  See?  Something GOOD about dial-up!

It'll be gone soon, i promise...and you'll get your avatar back, David...

If you look close enough in those 0's and 1's, there's a picture of the Turkish flag.  Hence the Middle Eastern music?

The whole thing is very creepy, if you ask me.  Why do people do this stuff?   Huh

Google the phrase "Turkish hackers," and see what comes up.  Don't people in Turkey have anything better to do?  Apparently they're in competition with the Bulgarians to see who can hack the most pages.

My nephew is looking into stealing the board back - he is tracking this guy all over the place, as well as checking out how to hack php boards.  I guess he's [the hacker, i mean] not making much effort to hide himself or his on-line identity or activities.

Why do people do this?  One answer would be that they don't have any control or power in their own lives, and this is a way for them to feel control and power. 

Another answer is that they're just assholes.

Maybe they're assholes who have no power or control in their own lives.

They should be playing outside like all bad little boys, playing God by burning ants with a magnifying glass.

This may be crazy, but I like the lay-out of this board a bit better. Sorry we had to lose so much material from the last board, though...We set sail again. Steady as she goes, straight ahead til morning.

While we're talking about Shut Down/Cabin Essence, I just wanted to let you all know that I'm trying a new chat on the site -it's php so I don't know what the hack risk is, but there is less to lose anyway on a chat. The previous script was working, but didn'tallow new people to register so I'm giving this a try..have a look at

Susan, have you and Chuck been to the PHPbb help forums? Apparently, there are worms out there that are designed to allow people to take control of your board if you are using an older version. That's most likely what happened to the Shut Down board. I'm not sure what happened to the other SS board, since it doesn't seem to have been overtly hacked or defaced, it's just running weird. There are instructions on the PHPbb forums on how to undo the worm problem. Start with this thread, if you haven't already: http://www.phpbb.com/phpBB/viewtopic.php?f=14&t=348139

Also, see these: http://www.geeklog.net/article.php/phpbb-worm
http://securityresponse.symantec.com/avcenter/venc/data/perl.santy.html
http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=phpbb+worm&btnG=Google+Search

Good luck, and sorry that this happened to you guys.

Hi Octave Doctor.  Yes, i've seen that...i don't think that's what happened to Shut Down.  There's a different message.  Regardless, i don't think any of the files are recoverable, so as soon as i've taken the email addresses i can get - my admin name was deleted, as was Andrew Gladwin's as moderator, so we can only see the ones that people decreed should be visible - as soon as i've got those, i'm deleting the files. 

Dave - thanks for that!  Kinda sad when we have to say [and i agree with you!] that we *always* miss it when it's gone...!!!

Never seen him mention those obscurities.


























Man this thread went off-topic really fast. And there was no real point to my last two posts in this thread. I'mma shut up now and go back to the albums thread.
