    Hello guys,

    In the next few hours ( 24 to 48 hours) you may experience some problems while trying to browse MalwareTips.com.... The reason? We've literally killed our hosting company servers with our traffic so now we're getting a well deserved upgrade!
    As always, we 'blame' you and your awesome posts for this traffic so don't complain about it! :cool:

    Please try to be patience while this process is completing and we're sorry for any issues that you may experience.

    Umbra, what exactly have you been trying to "infect"?
    I was trying to send you a message before maintenance, then again. Looks like destiny doesn't want you to receive the message. In that case, I will save it for another time.

    Now on topic: One word: YAY!

    How do you like this: So popular that the servers crash.
    I'm glad that MT is getting an upgrade because we are getting more popular with guests finding us, YouTube reviewers, and friends in real life are referring people. We don't just help people increase their protection we are a community.

    PS. Umbra your one of the top three people with the most posts here. Jack is the winner!

    Yes, I did. Plus it's about the rep/kudos not the post count. ;)

    Correction, it's about sharing your knowledge and helping others, not post count,
    Reputation or any other meaningless numbers.
