In the past 2 weeks this WordPress blog has been subject to a Brute Force Hack Attack. There have been several hundred attempts to ‘log in’ into the Dashboard but, due to our stringent security measures all attempts have been foiled.


EVERY login attempt on this site is logged so we know who you are and where you come from. We have each and every IP address of each and every attempt. Every FAILED login attempt is automatically blocked by our system and reported to the administrators of the site. You may as well give up – this site only allows logins from designated IP addresses and if you aren’t on the list of designated IP’s YOU WON’T GET IN!!!

So please give up NOW – you are just filling our inboxes with failed attempts and, quite frankly I have better things to do than keep deleting ‘failed login’ mails. Go play somewhere else!!!
