By now lots of you regular folks know that this forum was hijacked.Did you learn any thing from this.
I always kinda trusted everyone and why would some one delibertly want to harm a inocent site .I always posted my pictures here and never kepted a backup at home.WHY-----I always thought they would be here--Plain and simple.Well guess what.I have no more of my trailer photos.
My lesson is now I will keep a backup on disk of anything important to me.

What did you learn?

Back up is always a good idea. I have a program that creates thumbnails, and keeps the location of all my photos. I used to put them on a CD, but now I can get more on a DVD.

I also intend to make a copy of the DVDs and put them in a safety deposit box.

That there are mean-for-nothing people in the world that have more time, than common sense on their hands.

Wonder what kind of jollies the person who hacked this site got out of the deal.

Hope a big case of heartburn........

You made a very valid point Ches. Backup anything that's important to YOU. Removable media is pretty dang cheap for those one and only copies of important pictures/documents.

Donna-

Only a big case of heartburn? Oh I wish more than that on them. At least a weeks worth of the terrible cramps and constant trots to the bathroom. In addition I hope their fingers cramp up so bad they can't pick their nose let alone use a keyboard for any purpose. Big oozing painful, infected sores on their butts that makes it impossible to sit down would be nice also and a cluster of warts on the end of thier nose and their mouth covered with cold sores that never go away just for starters.

As far as what I have learned well I have decieded it is time to learn how to do back-ups. This site has been so chucked full of priceless info (and I am sure it will get that way again soon) that was heartbreaking to lose. I really miss the burro link that was created. Thank goodness I did print out Burro door goes and how to repair it with step by step pictures. Now I just have to find it. I am sorry I did not get a chance to read all the old posts. When I had a few minutes I would always pull up some of the old posts and read through them. I must say I learned something new almost everytime I did that.

I am sure we are going to come back bigger, better and stronger this time. Amoung the many members there is just too much info to share and talk about.

Ellen I like your "revenge" much better than mine.


Did you mean this link: Burro Trailers

The only other links I can think of, went back to other pages on the forum...and right now those don't exist.

If you want the documentation from the Burro site, I'd suggest you grab it now....

I learned that I'm really addicted to this site and the people here (actually I already knew that).

I've been though several computer crashes over the years and I'm not good about backing things up. When it first happens it's very frustrating but I just rebuild. It's the same thing that will happen here, everyone still has the info it just needes to be rebuilt. Humans have amazing computers in their heads!

Donna-

Thanks but no that is not it. This was a bunch of different info/posts about the Burro trailers that was all put in one spot. On my favorites I put it as Losta Links 4 Burro. I am hoping that since it was a while ago that might come back at some point but the time Michael gets done.

Hey while I have you around I need you to send me your email address so I can email you the Amerigo info. Shannon still has the manual in her computer so I am just going to have her send them to you via email. Do you want Lil Big Foot and Burro Manuals and papers on how to put the Burro together also?

I have also been playing with my signature and want to know if it looks okay?

I wondered what happened to all the fabulous info on this site. I figgured someone archived it and I just didn't know where to look!
I've never been able to figure out those who get pleasure from trashing other people's hard work. They're a pretty pitiful excuse for a human.

I haven't thought of this in years, and it's not a very Christian thought, but there is an old "curse" that seems appropriate to wish on the hijacker, "May the fleas of a thousand camels infest your crotch".
Enough said!
I'm thankful I printed info that had future potential and it is in a file in "Nuestra Casita".

I learned that we have a bunch of great people who are members here, people who are interested in helping with the recovery, people for whom participation on this website means a great deal.



Of course, I suspected all that stuff already!

But the response from you folks was overwhelming... and I thank you for it!!

I was debating wether or not we could make a backup archive on cd or dvd to be able to keep at home, or in the trailer for reference when out enjoying it. In hindsight, I guess this was a good idea, I wish I had acted on it.

I have been installing and setting up networks in law and doctor offices for over ten years and I can't belive the the things people do with home computers. Your home PC IS NOT as SAFE as you think it is. I would not have a computer online with out a backup plan. But I do thank the people that do go online without one becouse I do make LOTS of money from them.

As my husband tells those who service his computer: "My idea of backing up my computer, is pushing my laptop away from me."

I learned that we lost nothing of importance and gained a valuable insight as to what a wonderful group of people play here.

This tells me that the person(s) who tried to destroy this site failed. Their feeble attempts equate to no more than a temper tantrum of a two year old and I am treating it the same way: Turning around, shutting the door behind me, and getting on with having a good time with all of you. They aren't worth the time nor the effort for me to even think about them, let alone let it bother me.

... besides, thanks to them, my Personal Messenger box is empty and I don't have to worry about cleaning it out now.

Pat and Arleen raise an issue re. computer security that's especially compelling right now. After this site was hijacked, we immediately went out and bought and installed an anti-spyware program, and use an anti-virus program that we keep up to date, but is this enough? I'm sure lots of us wonder what the computer experts among us would recommend to help us keep our computers safe.

There's three programs I run on my home computer beside anti-virus and fire wall.

Ad-Aware and SpyBot Search and Destroy. There are free versions of both. Strange as it may seem, Mircosoft recommends them or at least did a year ago.

Ad-Aware and SpyBot require updating and running every so often. You'll be amazed at how much stuff there is. I run about once a week and find lots of stuff.

At home I also WinPatrol. This one monitors the stuff running and checks what running everytime you reboot your computer. I just put it on so I don't know a whole lot about it yet. It's supposed to stop or at least let you know about stuff like the thing Sony is/was doing.

Hope this helps a bit.

Who do we address things to that we might want restored?

Some years back we did a mod to our Boler where we took out the bunks and added a two-person dinette that many have written asking details on how we did that. We have pictures around here and I'd be happy to send them along again to rebuild the site.

I just want to add my voice to those who trash an idiot who would do harm to such a nice group of people as those who populate this site. Let's hope there is a special thermostat in Hell for that clown! May he be granted 75 virgins in the after life but, before he can partake, he must face the members of fiberglassrv.com, all armed with knives for 15 minutes.

Ken, just go to the appropriate forum and start a new topic. As you know, you can only put in one picture per thread (or reply), but make as many as you need to get your information back up.

And thanks!

Are all the old posts gone? All the good references and histories "POOF". So many great updates by everyone.

I tried to review my old posts to start adding some new updates after a year of life challenges.


I did not save the information of my "framless restoration" digitally but have a written history which could be reposted if it would be of interest or helpful.

Thank you Michael and everyone for all your great help.

Thanks for the information re. computer security Byron. I'm not familiar with WinPatrol, but now I'll investigate and learn more about it - it might be a nice compliment to the programs we already have on our computer. I appreciate your advice!
