Okay, it looks like we have 1300 guests visiting the site.

I have no idea why.

That is probably causing the slowdown as the server load is giving me warnings.

Edit - They are all coming from China I think.

Okay, which one of you were discussing the Hong Kong situation in the politics threads? Or who was the one that was dissing China? You’re to blame :lol:

What purpose do you think that tasking 1300 bots to the site would have achieved? Or legitimately do you think they were visiting? Can you tell what they were doing?

The online user section will show what guests are doing if they are in the forum section or on certain other pages, but last night basically none of them were doing that, which makes me think they were simply loading the site and staying on the frontpage, or were loading it in a manner which wasn't browsing, just hitting the site. Might have been an attempted DDOS attack, might have been a misaimed botnet, or someone scanning the site using some other method.

The notoriously bias football media in Sydney, have attempted to hack the site from various points in China. You know it

It's getting really bad actually. My dad was telling me he is getting 8 or 9 a day. It's got to the stage where he won't answer the phone.....he lets it go to voicemail. So much for the no junk call register.

i know what you mean at the end of the day its the scams i hate the most not because i am getting caught out but because i know others are getting caught out, i have counted at least 10 calls from telemarketers today even if the conversation is only for 10 seconds its exhausting with so many

Actually - I hope I don't invite more trouble by posting that I've made my kids watch "Waltzing the Dragon" on iview  for homework, and I'm currently devising a set of questions they will have to answer tomorrow.

 

PS If you didn't catch it,  "Waltzing the Dragon" was a great 2 part doco, which, in part, traced our very extensive history with Chinese immigrants. It contained some criticisms of modern China - but not of the people.

Need to invest in a phone with answering machine in-built, you can screen the calls as they come in. 9.99/10 they never leave a message & can always pick up if you hear the voice of an actual caller at the other end. Do it, works well :)

Hi WSF family, need some advice:

So as you may know from the refereeing thread, I help officiate some games during weekends. I enjoy it and have been doing it for I think five years now.

The last time I was involved in the grand finals was a few years ago and I remember refereeing an over 35s final and an All Age Ladies. That AAL game had one of the best goals I’d ever seen, so I have fond memories of that.

I’ve just had a look at the appointments for the grand finals coming up and I’ve been assigned a low division kids final - still full field, but definitely not a 90 minute game. 

On the one hand, I’m happy to once again be involved in grand final day because it is a lot of fun and I have good memories of it. On the other hand, as someone who’s been doing this for like five years, I was hoping for... more, I suppose.

For semis, I did referee some all age men’s matches. Like I didn’t have the best performance that weekend but I had the sniffles and I’ve done adult games all season.

I dunno. Just feel a bit disappointed. Thoughts?

 I don't know how things work in the referee world - but that aside, my first thought is, rather than worry/wonder why you didn't get what you expected/hoped for, you should just ask why you missed out and develop your view from there.

That’s good advice, thanks

What I’ll do is wait to see who my fellow referees are. How it basically works is we are assigned a set of three games, from lowest age group to highest. The referees basically cycle through: one referee does the first centre and then does two lines, etc. so everyone gets a turn doing the centre. Problem is I got the first and most junior game.

If I get there and the two others I’m assigned with are experienced and older referees then so be it. I have a feeling they are random first years and teenagers.
