Post here to shower the ImageMagick developers with praise or discuss how you could have done a better job if you developed ImageMagick. Or talk about how Photoshop is better than ImageMagick. Even complain about how no one answered your postings in the Users forum. Venting and musings welcomed here.

I have found the forum very bad today - takes a long time to load, timeouts sql errors. This is on two different PC's so I do not think it is me; anyone else having problems?

I think it is a denial of service attack. I have already notified magick about the issue.

I've been getting many "SQL: too many connection" messages, so it could be a DOS attack. Bloomin' net-vandals.

The server is really busy and we get a lot of request on the server. Not sure why that is happening though.

+1, the sign up confirmation page was unavailable for a while.

Probably an alien robot attack as you say.

How can I live in a world where that sentence is meaningful?
