The aforementioned have contributed financially to the continuing triumph of 4hv.org. They are deserving of my most heartfelt thanks.
Registration Backlog Processed
Just an update to let everyone know that the existing backlog of registrations has been processed. A handful of older registrations which had been caught by an errant spam filter have also been processed. Apologies for any delays.

For everyone's convenience, I've added some contact information to the menu on the left side of the site. Please don't hesitate to use it if you're experiencing any difficulty signing in or getting registered.

Site Back Up!
4hv.org is back up and running, after several hours of downtime due to a hardware failure. Apologies for the inconvenience. The problem now appears to be fully resolved, so there's no expectation of further downtime in the near future. Carry on!

Signature Decrypted!
Someone finally cracked the cipher in my signature:


All credit goes to kalenedrael, who recognized the WWII-era cipher. Excellent work!

Registration Email
Hello all,

As part of the new anti-spam procedures in place, I ask people who are registering to send me an email confirming that they're not robots and that they've read the rules. Here's the thing, though: if you're registering here, and you've read the site rules, I expect you to be able to string together a few coherent sentences. If English isn't your first language, that's fine -- I completely understand, and will take that into account. If, however, you can't be bothered to write a few coherent and spell-checked sentences, I am probably not going to activate your account.

I'm not asking for an essay. I'm not asking for a resume. I'm not even asking you to prove that you know anything about the topics discussed here. I'm just asking you to prove that you're capable of contributing to the discussion by writing legible, intelligent sentences.

Thanks for your time, and happy posting!

Note About Registrations
Just a reminder: please read the registration page carefully, as well as the page that comes up after you submit your registration. If you don't, your account won't be activated.

Registrations Re-enabled!
Hello all,

I've got some new spam-mitigation tools in place, so I've re-opened user registration. As always, use the Mod/Admin Contact Board if you spot a bot or spammer on the forum.

4hv.org Under Siege

Just a quick note to let everyone know that 4hv.org is currently under attack from a botnet. The botnet is spamming the forum incessantly, and so far IP bans have not been effective. The botnet has apparently been creating users for this purpose for the better part of a year, so I've had to go back and delete all accounts that appear to be inactive. Apologies if you're a lurker who has been caught up in this sweep.

Registrations will remain closed for the time being, until I can find a permanent solution to the spam problem. If you would like to be registered manually, please email forum at 4hv dot org. Include at least a few well written lines of text so that I know you're a real person.

Apologies for the inconvenience.

Registrations Temporarily Disabled

Registrations have been disabled temporarily while we deal with an ongoing spam issue. They will reopen as soon as the problem has been addressed. I would think it will be 2 days or so, tops.

WWT 2011
Well, I'm relaxing today after a long day at the 2011 Western Winter Teslathon. I just have to say -- what a great time! A huge thanks to Dr Spark and Dr Hankenstein for their monumental efforts in bringing the thon together. Another big thanks to the good folks at Tesla Universe, who provided a live feed for those who couldn't be there in person. Here's just a small taste of what went on:

The full album is here: https://picasaweb.google.com/105737103750710742362/WesternWinterTeslathon2011

Even more pictures over at Telsa Universe.

I also grabbed a number of videos:

The rest are here:

Now to start planning for 2012!
