I'd like to hear more details on that, especially wwwboard. because my home ISP uses it and there's one failure after another. It's very popular, serving about 5 counties, but the admin insists on using it and says he'll never change. I'd like to set him straight in a friendly way.
And get this--with the paltry 5 mb of space my ISP offers with each account (which I really don't use) when I'm logged into FTP, I can navigate out of my directory, into the main users directory, and beyond, all the way to the /home root directory. Can you believe that? (smalltown ISP for you)
I wouldn't give a rat's ass, except that's my main email account, and wouldn't want a DOS to disable my internet account. I emailed support recently, saying they have a major security hole and should fix it 'cause some bright kid could get in there and mess things up, and a couple days later the wwwboard went down due to what the admin said was "bad html" in a message (who knows what he meant)
OK, enough rambling...
