News and Reviews for Saturday October 27th 2012


So, I woke up this morning to about 200 hacking attempts on this site, yeah the site emails me when someone tries to login. It doesn’t make me happy to see my inbox filled with those, it rather annoys me really. I just wish they would quit, I’d love to know what they want? I’d love to know why they want in? I guess it’s obvious right, they want to do bad things. I have Capthca enabled and I would love to know how they bypass it so I can fix it, but I haven’t been able to figure it out, anyone know? Oh well, read the news.
