    Notice to potential new members.

    As the internet advances things are getting harder and harder to do safely. Thus if your reading this and are using a VPN your not going to get an account. I try often to screen applicants and allow as many as I think are legitimate and are not here to harm the site. Many applicants of late are from countries that are reputed to be untrustworthy and yet others just plain are a risk and get punted.

    So if you are legitimate and cannot get an account, send me, Marc, Elkhound or Gateholio a PM and we will check things out.

    With malware, spyware, and data tracking/mining trends in online spaces it is increasingly recommended for personal security to use a VPN at all times when online. Seems a little anachronistic to resist that.

    Thanks Steelco. That explains why I'm blocked at my office (we have a VPN) but not at home. No big deal, no need to fix it. Appreciate the explanation.

    Ditto

    was wondering why, when travelling and using a VPN, that I could not connect

    all good, no need to change

    thanks again for providing this great venue

    I appreciate it immensely

    No argument here. But as I (we) still need to manually approve or disapprove memberships this is the best your going to get for now. The sites owner has the last call on software updates!

    All emails go to me. I work a 40 hour week sometimes 72 hour weeks, have a family, Pets, chores etc. I'm not on the computer 24 hours per day and the Moderators and Admins do a great job helping me keep this website up and running.

    Obviously someone actioned your request or you wouldn't be on here posting.

    Regards,

    Marc.
