I suspect it is supposed to be a cat.

I kind of liked the dancing cat. It's probably because I have fond memories of ascii art back in my old BBS days using my 9600 baud modem with my C64.

I wonder if Plomp has even noticed the forum got hacked yet. It's not like he's been posting much lately.

I hear he's running a "Christ, what an ass!" version of the forum and hasn't noticed any changes.

it's still down. :(

Even using the /forum line doesn't work so this isn't like the last time the forum got hacked where it was just the front page and the rest of the forum was still intact. I hope Plomp has the forum backed up some where because the hackers could have simply deleted everything except their own page script.

There's nothing worth keeping?

Oerdin

Have either of our local poly mods been contacted by Robert? I'm hoping for a hint about when the forums might reopen.

Funko
30-08-2013, 16:37:43
He wouldn't know how to contact me.

Don't you just go up on the roof of Reading City Hall and activate the Twatsignal?

Oerdin
30-08-2013, 17:08:03
Somebody should copy right the twatsignal. That's just too good not to do so.

i'm still astonished that there's no real way to get in touch with the plomp

Oerdin

Well, the dancing ASCII cat is gone but now the whole site seems to be down so I imagine Plomp is now hard at work attempting to fix the site. Or then again maybe he just said fuck it.

it would be a shame, yet appropriately ignominious end to apolyton.

In the far-distant past, Poly was once down for over a week. I think it was nearly 10 days in fact. Wonder if this will beat the record?

Oerdin
02-09-2013, 03:32:08
I'm willing to bet it will. If my memory serves the last time the site was hacked the front page was changed but if you used the /forums tag you could still get on the forums. This time it seems like the whole site is gone.

I'm sure there would be if anyone bothered to try to find one.

1 second on Google tells me he's on LinkedIn

Last time I looked over there Funko did something that made me laugh, but I can't remember what it was.

Funko

Last formal thing I did - they have this ridiculous "thanks" feature where you can thank someone for a post, but you only get like 1 or 2 "thanks" a day. Someone asked if they could "thanks" their own post, so I suggested they just register another login to thank their own posts with. :beer:

CGers wouldn't have needed to ask, or create extra AEs. :(

Lurker

Thank you for that post.

Just in case you forgot about how much of a fucktard I am.

Owww, poly is now getting a data base error which means Plomp has been trying to fix it.

Looks like we only lost three days! :)

Funko

That's not bad, I'm amazed it's even as much as weekly backups.

MOBIUS

Meh, don't think I posted anything meaningful during that time...:D

Funko
03-09-2013, 12:57:26
Same would be true if they'd lost 3 years

MOBIUS

You must be feeling generous today - I was expecting same would be true if they lost the whole thing...:funko:

Funko

I considered it but I thought 3 days, 3 years had a nicer balance to it.

Yeah, I think I might have done the same.
