The Latest From BostonBiker.org
News, Events, Updates
Seems over the last couple days, roughly 40,000 spam users from all over the world have attacked the database. As such I am aggressively cleaning out the user table…
This shouldn’t mean anything to you, unless of course I crush you under my iron heal of deletion by accident.
If you find yourself unable to log into your blog, contact me, and we will get it sorted out.
You will also notice the forum is gone, it was fun while it lasted but never really caught on. Maybe at some point it will come back, but for now its gone baby gone.

Does anyone use the forums anymore? If so I will keep them, if not, I think they might go during some new years cleaning I am going to be doing soon?
Make your case in the comments.

The old event system was well….old, so I am switching over to something a little more flexible. I am going to be fiddling with it a bit today, so don’t be surprised if things look a little strange for a while.

In the next few days I am going to be testing some optimization scripts. These are to hopefully improve the speed of the site, decrease down time, protect from spam, and in general make things zippy around here. However there are some possible side effects, you might be asked to fill out a CAPTCHA (those annoying type in the letter things) if the scripts think you are naughty. This is mostly likely because you are one of the following, a spammer, a malicious bot, or your computer is infected with some sort of malware you don’t know about. I apologize if this happens to you. I will be testing this script for a week or two to see if it actually helps with site speed, etc. If it does I am going to keep them, if not, they are out!
I appreciate your patience during this period. As always feel free to report any problems through the contact form, or in this comment thread.

A while ago I mentioned that I would be giving prizes to the first 20 people that tried out the forum. Well I am happy to report that the brave testers did a great job, gave some good feedback, and some good suggestions for future improvements, and because we didn’t quite get to 20, I have decided to give everyone who tested them out a prize.
So the winners are the following:
Thanks for your help!
