      Surfcaster's 2016 Reboot!   09/21/2016

      Howdy, folks. I know this is way overdue, and the damage is probably already done, but after weeks of working with the database I've finally wiped out all of the spam posts and topics. This was no easy task, considering there were three-quarters of a million bogus posts and nearly three hundred thousand bogus topics. Once a hacker/spammer network finds a vulnerability, they send out automated programs that basically destroy a database like this. Over the past couple weeks I've migrated all of the good data into a more current, secure platform with the hopes that we can somehow rebuild. New member registration is tightened way up, and a third-party spam monitoring service is in place. I've also invested in an awesome new gallery extension,  allowing members to create, manage, and share image galleries. Please give it a try, and let me know if there are any issues. I'm still testing and working out the bugs. Surfcaster's forums were once an amazing resource for everyone to enjoy, and we're hoping it can once again build back up. The main site (non-forums) is pretty banged up, but once the forums are complete my next task is to re-invent that as well. Spread the word. Hope to see a lot of you back! Cheers, Andrew

  1. thanks for wrecking my fukkkkkking computer. is my language too harsh? go fukk urselves.
  2. Thanks SurfRat....that is exactly the type of "lathed/ milled" grip i am talking about. the only diff is that the butt section is a heck of a lot longer and the rod in general is way bigger. thanks again....will keep you posted regarding my research results.... -old
  3. howdy strangers....speaking of vintage fishing tackle, I recently unearthed a rather antique baitcasting rod...hexagonal blank, one piece 12'+, 3 guides, and for the lack of a better description, the grip looks like lathed/milled rings fore and aft of the reel seat (nickel?)...it is etiher wood or split bamboo etc. It actually looks like the mahogany from a vintage Chris Craft. Old school. For sure, this piece of tackle is a showpiece and would look great hanging on a wall. It even had a Penn Peer No. 209 attached (the handle is an opalescent jade-ish type of thing). My question: any good resources for researching this rod? I have done the antique tackle search thing on google, but all I get is flyfishing info.... Thanks for any help ladies and gents. -old
  4. Have a good one Zippy.
  5. McFee tells me it was a trojan named "Exploit-WMF" with a file name of "xpladv748[1].wmf"... not a big threat i am told, but it had me digging into the bowels of my computer's files to find it and kill it. lesson to be learned: when installing SP2 for XP, make sure virus protection is squared away. also, if you didn't know it.....comcast customers are entitled to free mcafee virusscan stuff. i just learned of this fact about 24 hours ago. i have been trying to figure the problem since Friday night. I am a victim of it. boo hoo. What i want to know is this....Did this trojan originate from this site? thanks...later. http://us.mcafee.com/virusInfo/default.asp...&virus_k=137760
  6. just kidding about the bay...
  7. fooled me
  8. What do you do with a drunken sailor? What do you do with a drunken sailor? What do you do with a drunken sailor? Early in the morning.
  9. phew...you guys should have seen what was actually posted before i had a moment of clarity and exchanged it for the "testing one two" jibberish. for the record, zippy saw what i wrote...I just dropped off a million dollars at his house to never speak of it again...lol
  10. testing one two.
  11. Hypercrite. the majority of your posts dwell on how bad this site is...I went to Arby's once and thought it was disgusting...I never went back. Thank you for your time.
  12. When you officially withdraw and have your posts and avatar and all the bells and whistles removed, then you will have credibility. and for the love of the almighty striped bass, please don't try to fool us by eradicating your account and then rejoining. that would be in poor taste... Godspeed. :P
  13. How about a shitting contest then? :P
