Wow... umm.. merkursport?

Post by yottabit » Mon Feb 11, 2008 10:31 pm

I'm active in both this forum and merkursport (primarily this one though)

I just tried to go to merkursport and was greeted with a nice generic random domain name page, and when I hit "Why am I seeing this" I got an email prompt with

"Inquiring about the domain merkursport.com, with status: Expired"

Looks like someone dropped the ball on that one?? :?

looks like some script kiddies are playing around somewhere.

I was in the same boat as you mere seconds ago.

I'm sure it will be fixed up soon like.

It's screwed up. Main page works fine, any php request prompts an ad. :?

Actually, I don't have cookies. I was viewing from work, where I use the "clear all personal data" feature after every browser session. :)

I'm at home now and all is well with Merkursport. Looks like it's been fixed.
