Why The Recent Problems With The BBO Site?
Visitors to the Big Brother Online site may have experienced
difficulties logging-on over the past week, so we'd just like
to try and explain why?
Firstly, as you may have read in the national newspapers
recently, online traffic in relation to Big Brother has been
intense this year and our servers were struggling under the
sheer amount of fans trying to use the site.
However, in addition to this problem our site suffered a
malicious attack, which was frankly rather puzzling to the
staff here at BBO.
Although we don't condone that kind of activity in any way,
we appreciate that some people may wish to be malicious towards
'corporate' businesses such as the Channel 4 BB site.
But why bother with a little independent fan site like ours
- what kudos is there in that? Perhaps someone didn't realise
that we're nothing to do with C4 or Endemol? (we're not).
Whatever, we'll be looking to keep control of the situation
over the coming weeks by working with our new web host Entanet,
Technology partner Webscreen Technology and, if necessary,
the official authorities (aka the bizzies!)
So, thanks for bearing with us and a huge Thank You to the
companies mentioned above, for their considerable help in
moving and upgrading our hardware/hosting etc.
If you, or any of your friends are still having problems
visiting the site using certain ISP's, please let us know.
