While perusing the fora, I clicked on "List all topics" and got the following message
Invalid characters in your request indicate possible hack attempt. Timeand IP have been logged, board administration has been notified.

This happened twice or three times in quick succession, then everything went back to normal. What's going on?

Re: Denial will get you nowhere.
Yes it was me... That snippet of 6502 assembler I learnt all those years ago combined with a glass of Glenmorangie and a few random mouse clicks was all that was needed...

It was me!
I was in the middle of what was supposed to be a real short test (about 15 seconds) of some hack checking code when my son interrupted me, "Dad, I need directions," "Can't it wait," "No, I'm late already," "What's so important," "I'm going to the <something legitimately very important>," "Oh, okay."

Apologies, etc...
