One thing I love about this site is when we come together and learn about events like this live and provide our own commentary. You all look at different sources and post them here for us all to see.
I remember being alerted to the 9/11 attack on the twin towers, and because I was on the site at the time, I was able to see the second plane hit the towers live. A terrible thing to have seen, but I doubt there'll be a larger event in my lifetime.
This is why I've spent the last hour removing individual posts and removing the racist stuff. What's left I hope is an account of the event itself, and not opinionated stuff that may or may not have been said in the heat of the moment.
Spare a thought for me as I had to use thread mode. Quite useful in these instances.
Oh, here's the thread. I've locked it now but please flag up by hitting the abuse button and I'll remove it.
Morning all. At midnight on Sunday we switched over to a much more powerful server. A move which took less than 7 minutes which I'm quite proud of (thanks Mark for your help).
The move was necessary because I've just flicked a switch meaning our web address is now https://www.twtd.co.uk and not http://www.twtd.co.uk. All communication with our server and your browsers is now done via SSL which means everything is encrypted.
One of the reasons for doing this is that Google prefers secure sites, and is better for you too so your passwords are doubly encrypted when you post them to our server when you log in. We were going to do this later in the summer but I was reliably informed that these rogue ad redirects were a cause of us not on an SSL server.
So please let me know if you see anything wobbly going forward. Regarding the server, not er, anything else. No photos of jellies or NSFW images, thanks.
I'd like to hear if you received any redirects also. That's a work in progress and top of my to-do list to stop that from happening and we've put significant resource into this.
