This site, as well as other sites connected with Wineskins (as well as many thousands of other sites using the same cloud server), is under attack from Ukraine and Chinese IP addresses making massive attempts to crack our passwords and turn OIJ into a zombie server for, I’m sure, nefarious purposes.
Fortunately, we are set up with excellent anti-hacker protection and none of the attacks have yet succeeded. Unfortunately, all these attacks are overwhelming the server. This means that, at times, your comments will not go through simply because there server cannot handle so many log in attempts at once.
The webmaster is working hard to block these attacks so that service to you is not interrupted. In the meantime, to avoid having to retype your comments, I recommend that you do what I’m learning to do.
1. Type in comment.
2. Highlight and copy the entire comment. (Ctrl-C on a Windows computer.)
3. Post the comment.
4. Reload the page to see whether comment went through.
5. If the comment failed to post, try again by pasting the copied comment (Ctrl-V on a Windows computer) into the comment box.
Keep trying until it goes through. In my experience, the second try usually works fine.
I’m sorry about all this. The Internet has become a dangerous place, and there are evil people who’d love to take over this site. Hopefully, we get this under control in short order.
