Just a heads up for all our members. We have looked into this "Dangerous Website Issue" and are addressing the issue as I type this. Godaddy.com, who host's our forum, says the website has a virus, however, they don't know, what kind of virus. David is going to perform some site updates. Which we feel should take care of any issues you guys are having. So hang in there, and I will keep everyone posted. :biggrin:

I've downloaded the update... This takes a few hours to do so I'll read up on the update process and do it Saturday morning...

Just now I logged in and didnt get the warning. I am pretty sure I got the same deceptive sight warning on the bullet the other day.
Loggin in just now I did get a small warning...something like this is an unsecured sight. I have been getting the same warning for a few days at a dating websight I go on...so it may just be my computer.

If you don't look like the girl in your profile, you are buying the beer until you do....Classic line but way to go bro, you pissed off a smart chick and she crashed the site! LOL

Here's today's update...
The forum needs to be upgraded. In order to do the upgrade the hosting (GoDaddy) account needs to also be upgraded. This means I have to migrate ALL my sites (I have like 6 that are active) to a new server. So this morning I'm working on undoing the upgrade I started to get the forum live again. After getting that done I'll start migrating the sites to the new server 1 by one and then once I get VJB moved over there I'll again attempt the upgrade... Cool...?

The new server is live, I need to down load the site, then upload the site to the new server, hopefully this is all better in the next couple weeks... :happy2:

Am I the only one still getting it? In addition when I go to log in it gives me a little message that this sight isnt secure...or something along those lines.
I think I mentioned I got/get the same message on a dating websight I am on. I just now signed up on a blade making forum to ask a heat treating question and got the exact same message.
Just curious...isnt that big a deal...I just click ignore this warning.

No errors on my end other than the update downtime. Maybe you have an illness, um... I mean virus. Yeah, that's it.

The updates have not been done yet...
I don't believe there is a virus, I think it's just Google's new protocol that sees this site asking for info like your address, etc and thinks it's phishing...

The last few weeks have been a little hectic around here...
Flew my grandson and daughter down from CO fo his 4th birthday...
My great niece Mikella lost a 20 month battle with cancer at age 25, had to got to TX for this...

Hopefully this week I can get going on these upgrades again and get past this...
