404 - File Not Found on GeorgiaDragRacing.com
We are sorry, but the file you are looking for is not available at that URL. We have undergone some dramatic changes at GeorgiaDragRacing.com in the not-too-distant past and that may be the reason. Please have patience while we pick up the pieces and clean up the dust.
We are saddened to have to announce that we are forced to make some big changes to GeorgiaDragRacing.com. These events were out of our control.
For months, we've been fighting intrusions by malicious hackers who have been stealing bandwidth, loading disallowed software, and attacking other computers from our server.
David decided that we want to do everything in our power to be good Internet citizens who don't cause any trouble. While we can't do anything about the attacks we've been suffering, we could make one last attempt to close as many cracks in the security as possible.
To that end, we decided to kill all scripts that are running on this site. We've had PERL scripts powering the bookstore, photo album, and news. They've been deleted. A series of PHP scripts powered the forum. They've been deleted.
This may have a major impact on the usability of the site as we work diligently to find and squash any problems that result from this major change that affects just about every page on the site.
Fortunately, no actual functionality will be lost, but there will be changes in how we'll present them, and they won't all be hosted locally on this domain.
New Location for Photo Album
The Photo Album has been reborn in a rather different format. All the photos are restored and available. This will not fix any broken links, but that is unavoidable. At least, now you can link to the photos and/or the albums, again.
New Photos to be Displayed on ImageStation.com
David will resume loading photos to his account at ImageStation.com. I don't know when, or if, he'll be able to move the photos that were originally hosted here onto that server. It may be that only future photos will be uploaded there. David's available time and energy may make the decision for him.
New Location for News
We will no longer post news updates on the News page. From now on, David will upload them to the new Georgia Drag Racing News blog at gdrn.blogspot.com.
Bookstore Has Been Redesigned
The Bookstore will be a major challenge since most pages on the site interact with the program that was powering it. I'll be replacing all links with new links that are not subject to attack by hackers.
The Forum is Gone
The forum is dead and won't be reactivated. I've replaced the forum index page so that it invites you go join our mailing list hosted by Yahoo, or to read the postings on the website they provide for the list. You do not have to subscribe to the list to read the postings on the website.
David's Drag Racing Memorabilia Auction Moved
Although David hasn't recently been auctioning any drag racing memorabilia, we would still like for you to know that he's had to change his eBay account and here's the new location for his drag racing memorabilia auctions on eBay.
We appreciate your patience and support
David and I both deeply regret having to make this decision and implement these steps in a last attempt to keep our account with an excellent host. They have been more than patient and have worked diligently with us for far longer than they normally would. For this, we thank them. Hopefully, these steps will stop the hackers and we'll have a home here for a long time.
However, if you come to GeorgiaDragRacing.com one of these days and find that it has disappeared, don't give up on us. If we are forced to move, I'll arrange for a new server and rebuild the site as quickly as I can.
We ask for your understanding and patience as we make this somewhat difficult transition. Hopefully, I'll have the dust cleared away in a few weeks and David will be able to continue bringing you the news and pictures that you've come to expect here at GeorgiaDragRacing.com
We appreciate every single one of you who finds something of interest at this site and we hope to provide continuing coverage of news, events, people, and other items of interest related to Drag Racing in Georgia.
Thank you for being one of our valued visitors. Please come back.
All the best,
