It blows the HOJ back-up Vinc worked so hard to create has been lost because of this. It's still a total mystery to me as to how my account had that much data on it when I did nothing out of the ordinary last time I was on HOJ. I've been thinking it's possible I may have picked up a virus or some spyware, so later I'll do a scan and clean-up in the event of anything. But if that were the case, it could happen to anyone.

That sucks. Anyone want to manage a forum full time ? lol

I thought I'd let everyone know if I find out a status update on HOJ, I'll throw it up here since you guys blew up the other forum in two days.

I've been talking to someone who took care of hosting the website...

- They said they didn't keep a backup of the forum because it was too early, they usually save a backup once a month.

- I won't have to pay for the extra bandwidth since they were able to close it before any damage was made to their servers...

mine practically blew up though... but that's a different story

I'll keep trying to fix the issue but I really don't think I'm gonna be able to...

God I had no idea how much work that is... I already had a lot of respect for everyone running the board at HOJ... but now I have even more.

I don't think he did anything either. Is it possible we've been attacked by a rival forum or something? It almost looks like he was targeted because he's known for posting a lot in a short amount of time.

He might not have known, but I guess the servers exceeded bandwith all attributed to his username, so i'm not sure. Vince explained in the above posts

I didn't have time to check his IPs before the forum crashed... but he might have been hacked... that's definitely a possibility. I don't see how a single person could use 250GB of bandwidth in less than an hour. It's crazy...

I just don't see why someone would go to all that trouble if they did hack him that's really lame.

Adam threatened he was going to 'destroy our precious new HOJ' a few days ago, but whether he was kidding or whether he actually did, no idea.


Sucks though, the place was coming along nicely Sad

I dont' really know the whole deal w/ Adam, but doesn't hacking stuff require some brains?

Is he really smart enough to do it you think?

Well it's plausible, but i'm not sure how hacking works maybe anyone can do it. Well anyone desparate enough to learn I suppose. The whole thing is just weird. Maybe Vince can figure out some more details as to what really happened.

It's good you don't have to pay the fee, Vince. That would've been unfair for you to since we had no idea the board was going to blow up that soon.

I'm thinking it's possible my account got hacked (and in the event it did I'll have to change my password around a bit to make it much harder to decode) or maybe it was a bug in the server. Only two possibilities I can think of Neutral
