    Well I just double posted on the "Free up space / missing hard drive space" thread. I hit "post quick reply" and got a "database error - wait 19 seconds to post" message. So I did tried it again and got the same messages. I refreshed the page and found I had double posted. Beware - there still be issues here!

    We're still under attack. We will notify our contact but I suspect we won't be able to get it fixed until tomorrow.

    I'm getting emails about posts that I then cannot get to. I've gotten two emails about two posts here, one from lclev and one from vansmith, both in response to post 210 from me, but when I click the link, I'm taken to page 14 and cannot get past that point. I've also tried just opening the thread and still can't get past post 210, page 14. I'm posting this to see if it will post. I was getting the same error as Lisa before, about a database error and wait 19 seconds to post again.

    If you guys get that 'database error' message just ignore and click on 'Leave Page' and your message will post. Clicking 'Save' again causes the duplicates.triplicates et al!
    Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!

    I have all sorts of problems posting here, primarily database errors causing duplication and i notice we have a lot of new posts with no replies, are we under attack from?? We have had a few bogus posts lately.

    Sorry duplication again. I refreshed the page after Data Base error and ended up posting twice, lets see how edit works.

    In post number 212, chscag says that the site is still under attack and that a solution is unlikely before tomorrow. Quite apart from the frustrations experience by we members, there have apparently been bogus postings, and who knows what other skulduggery.

    Perhaps we should all be careful in our use of the Forums. I'm not a prophet of doom, merely suggesting caution.

    I hope my remarks are not misunderstood or seen as an intrusion.

    If things are taking a while, please try to refrain from hitting submit more than once. I'm guessing that frustrations with speed are causing many of the duplicates (not a judgment - I don't sometimes have patience with slow network speeds) and given that a DDoS will inevitably slow a site down, I'm sure that this is the cause.

    Yes, the database is getting (or was) hammered. I'm hoping that this subsides soon.

    As Harry mentioned above. If you make a post...get a database error…and don't see your post...don't hit submit, reply, etc a 2nd or 3rd time. The reply will show up in the thread after the first submission…and…after the thread is refreshed (or backed out of & re-entered).
