    Andre,

    Please post the comments about Frisco Archive photos directly on the Archive.

    Why don't you combine them Charlie, I go nutzzzzzz with these passwords. I don't think Hamass is a threat here.

    Andre does have a point. Perhaps we could all do with one less password, or is there a real risk here?

    Hamass, no. Chinese and Russian hackers, thousands of attempts are logged by our server every day. No joke.

    Charlie, that is sad. I wonder how many times a day they try to hack computers in the United States if they try nearly 34,000 on our website. It has to be in the high millions!!!

    And those hackers want every bit of information about us they can gather.

    Everything we do we do for a reason. There is no BS associated with this.

    We support you all the way Charlie. Keep up the great work. I would hate to see if a hacker deleted all of the photos and verbiage on our website, that would be tragic.

    This is in spite of these IP blocks that go back as far at 2014...

    Thanks Charlie. I know the RUSTBUCKET weathering forum I participate in got hacked last winter. It was a mess. They changed user names, entire posts etc.......

    All that is very good, but we still don't need two passwords. Can we not protect both with one password.

    Bill, as far as I know there is no reason that you can't change your password for the Forum and change the password for the Archive to one in the same password. You would still have to enter that password on the Archive, but at least you would have the same password for both.
