For me too. It's provider's problem IMO.

IIRC privalov has mentioned this in the forum, irritating it is, but I'm afraid there is nothing one can do about it :/

:mad: The same thing is happening to hutch's forum. Could it be related? :eek:

Following Privalov advice, it is a problem related to MySQL, so it is possible that is related.

are they on the same server?

Doesn't apear so (different IP and different "providers"), but they have the same DNS servers.
source: ww.nic.com (http://www.nic.com/cgi-bin/wp.cgi -- whois)

Maybe it's some worm or bug roaming the servers?

I know hutch's db is not local to his site server, so it could be that privalov hosts the site at one location but uses a database on hutch's share? :/
