I read what they have, and I think it'd be easy for anyone wanting to rip Mt. Redmond a new one to do so.

I still find it nuts that the consumer user group has become the enterprise test team.

Totally agree.

In the SWI topic Gal said, It had to have been a botnet. Pretty sure of that. "

Yes, and when the coffee shops providing wireless in Europe opened, the Ddos started, every-single-day.

Gal and Metallica also said, "it changed my life"

It did, for many. Not sure if one could ever explain that, you had to be there I guess.

I remember the first time I joined IRC.  Aaron took me by the hand, so to speak, and helped me through it.  Then Maddoktor2 led me to one of the other IRC rooms, most likely one where therock247uk was Admin since he seemed to live in IRC at the time.

As I recall, you had a first person seat watching the DDoS.
Corrine, when I joined IRC Crow had to explain why no-one could read my posts in "white" haha

I was about to respond to:
Seeing as how Niecarrah is enjoying our trip down memory lane, I'll include an event that those of us who have been around for a while certainly remember -- the DDoS of 2004.  The disastrous DDoS of 2004 - History of the Forum - SpywareInfo Forum

It was certainly an historic event in our history.

Many of us had enrolled in the TomCoyote Classroom of 2013 which was opened by cnm along with others from SWI. Gal!

Gal explained it well in the link you provided:

While many security sites were being brought down, helpers and developers gathered in Mike's IRC channel for information. It was literally standing room only, the place was packed and anyone who was late had to wait for someone to leave before they could enter.

I don't know what it was about my being a noob, (perhaps light comic relief) but Mike took an interest in me and during a Ddos on SWI he took me into SWI under cloak to see how awful it was.

Slooooooow as molasses.

By the time site owners learned how to batten down the hatches a'b stuck, the landscape was about to change.

<snip> so Merijn could add it to CWShredder. (I came up with that name btw)

I didn't know that, what a neat part of the history!

Sure, now you mention Flrman1!  For the life of me yesterday, I could not remember his name.  Fortunately, DonnaB came to the rescue. 

Tom Coyote's famous beef brisket recipe!  I went looking for it in 2007 when you mentioned it in a thread at LS.  At the time, it hadn't occurred to me to check the Internet Archive when I discovered Tom's link from Tashi's post,  "Quick Coyote Chatroom RibSauce" - What the Tech was missing.

I remember Flrman1... and Coyote's recipes, good ol' Texan stuff.

Tom taught me and Dorthy a lot, he'd have us in ACP daily tracking everything we did. I remember when she thought she'd nuked a forum. Talk about freak out. lol

Ow yeah. I wonder what became of Suzi?
We message each other a few times a year to keep in touch.  :)

It was Janie who nominated me for the MVP award.
Me too! Twice because the first time my 10k + posts were lost when N-I went kaput.

Janie and I had so much fun at one Summit we were at.

I remember there was a particular nasty 10-12 years ago, known as a peper.a trojan infection.

I was in the Tom Coyote Classroom and FAL helped us with peper. In those early classroom days we were set free on live users.   :thud:
Mosaic helped me via PM with a .bat, we hadn't got to that stage in our training.

Think it was about then I thought if I survive this I'm becoming an Admin.   :laughing:

The good guys quickly developed some tools. HijackThis was a vital tool.  If memory serves, Mosaic had a script. I think Option^Explicit developed KillBox about that time. Aaron was working on it for urizen. 

It was all live in Mike Healan's IRC channel, #privacy. Many developers were there doing fixes on the fly. Remember Magnus?
Option^Explicit  would tease this noob, if he saw me at a site he'd send a PM, EMERGENCY!!!!

Good times.

Congrats Corrine!   :D

It might be best to download the definitions manually, transfer to media storage and upload to the other PC.

Hope that helps.
