Earlier today, (Aug, 13, 2009 @ approx 15:00 CST), my account seemed to either have been hacked, or there was something weird going on at the forums. I was entering a message, and when I went to send it, I was logged out by the machine, and I couldn't log back in. I changed the password, and now things appear to be back to normal. Even that was a chore.

I was wondering if anyone else had experienced this.

Blessed be!
Pappy

That was it. Whew! I thought someone was screwing with my head...or my machinery. Well, at least I have a new password.

Blessed be!

Got hit yesterday too. I've had to change my password (hence reactivate my account) to be able even to log on again.

I had this happen again a day or so ago. Since I more or less knew what was up, I did other things until the forums got better. They did...luckily.

Blessed be!
