FYI, site appears to be down.
As I (think I) have said before, it does drop for a short while occasionally. Fairly rarely, though January was kind of a nightmare for 'em and thair clients, getting DoS'd and all.
It's a cheap host too, so I personally don't mind short downtimes (server reboots and such). Do mind when it stretches to hours though. :I
So usually in these cases, just wait a bit and try again. It happens.
Not to mention, even if it IS down, there isn't much I can do about it!
Wait how do you detect if they are being used on a different site?
By the magic of referers
. If they appear outside of TWf, the file name blings up on a list. It also makes a proverbial checkmark to a file if it is has been referred from TWf. So, if a file is only showing up outside of the forum, I may do something about it. Simple!
Or for PMs...
That too would mark it as TWf usage, so it wouldn't even show the filename to me in that case. Also there would be no way for me to read your PM or anything either.
