Bringing up the local regional summits ( http://www.sotawatch.org/summits.php?region=130 ), previous Activations column is all zeroes. Link is definitely broken with the database.

Don’t worry Ricky, it’s just Andy’s sense of humour. You’ll get him back one of these days… follow my example - I try to wind him up at every opportunity - the problem is that he knows I don’t mean it. :wink:

Having a major sense of humour failure thanks to spam bot hosted on Amazon EC2 which is hammering the database. Well it was, tomorrow the logs will be either bot free or my email inbox will be full of complaints that nobody can login.

In reply to MM0FMF:

Ah fully understood… a complete pain in the backside that you can do nothing about. I’m currently miffed by a similar issue which has me stopping work several times a day to answer the home phone (who’d work from home?). If it isn’t a call about a government grant for loft insulation or a home security system which is now mandatory as I live in a crime hot spot (who says?), it’s a gentleman who keeps phoning telling me that I have an urgent security problem with my computer which needs sorting. Whatever happened to the good old TPS? Presumably there is an equally ineffective equivalent system policing the net.

In reply to G4OIG:

Well that looks quite an effective fix. If robots that spider your web site wont read /robots.txt and follow it then a bit a code in the relevant Page_Load() functions chops them off at their knees.

A bit more polishing in that bot swatting function and we’ll get some of our wasted bandwidth back.
