The site is almost impossible to get onto, there is an impossibly long birthday list - are there that many forum members - all with this birthday?

Is the site under hacker attack?

It may be related to the birthday issue, where a lot of people did not want to give their real birthday for security reasons or whatever and chose January 1st.
Probably be OK again tomorrow.

I'm having the same trouble.
If I select "Forum" (which is where the URL I use normally takes me) the computer freezes up.

I'm on now only because Google gave me a URL to "Range".

More than likely it's SPAMMERS . Another forum i'm on just went through an attack of SPAMMERS that were a large group and they all refused to put in their birthdays but they left porno-images and links to other sale items and etc.... , Took nearly a week for the forum to banned them all cause some were coming back and re-registering in a different name also but it finally came to a halt . If you see anything suspicious report it as spam but you may look at the sponsors list and see who all is sponsors before you report as spam .

I got the b-day wishes too. It's a little slow but i get in with no problem with Chromium on Linux.

added: Oh, just noticed today's birthday list on the right on the home page.............................

added: I went and checked my profile, birthday was set to January 01, 0001. Of course I'm wondering if somebody found a way to hack the site by changing all the birthdays to the same date, and then use that to gain access if they use birthdays as a security challenge here? Don't think they do though. I changed mine to the correct birthday. I'm sure the admins are on it.

I got the birthday message - I was one year old today. Although it was my wife's birthday, not mine. Also having trouble with Firefox.

I see birthdays has been disabled from view.
I'm guessing that was the problem.
