Whats wrong with Shoptalk?

Hi

Has Shoptalk been hacked again? If it has, it must be ricers.

Seems like they get picked on A LOT. Glad we stay under the radar for the most part.

What would be the allure of hacking shoptalk to a hacker?

Good question, but then I don't get hacking for the most part anyway.
If you had a political agenda... ok, I see that. If you were mad at the power company, or had some financial gain, I get that. Just crashing some random forum for a few days... that's just stoopid. I wish I had enough 'puter saavy to be able to even understand what its about... but I guess if I did, I would be creating and building with my knowledge, not wasting hours for zero purpose.

There are several folks on here with the skill level BUT, they only use their powers for good, not stupid, mindless shizzle like hacking.

Hi

It ruins my recreational computer activity. I always check, Aussieveedubbers.com, Germanlook, Superbeetles only and Shoptalk when ever I get online and of course Ebay.

Hi Barls

I saw that, it looks like it was down for repairs, so all the evil hacker thoughts were not true; at this time anyway.

Steve

Not really related to the STF downtime, but hope that someone can help me out here.... Aussieveedubbers has been mentioned in another post on this thread, so I would like to jump in and try make use of the opportunity

In the past, I could access this website. But now, for one reason or another, I cant access this website from three different machines, all running XP (one is a new install on top of it). Tried the latest Firefox and IE with no avail. I get to the home page, but as soon as I click on the forum link, I get the error "Error: UltimaBB is not installed, or is configured incorrectly. Click Here to install Ultima" . This is SO frustrating. I even tried to send an email via the contact link to ask the Mods for help, but no replies.... it has been weeks

I tried searching the web, but no apparent answers/fixes were available.....

Can anyone PLEASE help? Thanks!
