Sometimes I hate the web

I've been getting text messages from friends this morning. That's usually a good thing, but today all of the messages are to tell me that the FLYER website is down.

Our tech. team (Liam) is working on it and our ISP (Houxou) has been informed, but it looks like we suffered a DOS (Denial of Service) attack overnight.

Why do hackers/whoever do that?

Civil war breaks out

It seems that GA has gone to war with itself. The issue is the IMCR and the work done on an accessible instrument rating by the FCL.008 committee.

Whatever the facts, and it is a complicated area, the personal attacks do none of us any good at all.
