Occasionally we will have a technical problem accessing PDO - we've had very few of late, its actually become a lot better - then please find us on FaceBook on the PDO
 group page:
http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=76866292816&ref=ts


UPDATE!!
We now use a PDO page:
https://www.facebook.com/pages/PartnerDanceOnline/162136271522?ref=hl

There we can update you on efforts to get back online.

BTW if you do now have a FB account its a great way to find out more about our members.

So we had a classic failure - classic because it affected me too, I was just as locked out as you all.  Fortunately, the great guys at the hosting company were able to fix the database enough to let me in.

It happened about 2 am last night - and after that there were over 2,000 attempts to access the forum by 'guests' I guess these could be frustrated bots.

The post where it failed was from a 'content spammer' that traces to china form a computer that has had security issues, according to a brief look on the web.  The good news is that we are still keeping them out, a little winged but no damage that I can find.

It does put more of a pressure on us to upgrade the software to the latest versions - obviously we are going to see more incidious attempts to hack the site and we could easily loose it.  On those lines, I do periodic backups but some posts would inevitably be lost.

Still Smiley ing.
