Iím getting quite a few queries to the website that look like database injection. Iíve implemented a block.

Please let me know if you get caught by this block and werenít trying to abuse the service.

This is a fantastic site, Patrick. I use it all the time and recommend it constantly. It's without question the most comprehensive music pipe music index on the planet.

The tune index is invaluable and we are extremely lucky you let us use it! Thank You so much for your generosity. I use it a lot (though probably not as much as Jim McG!).

I've been trying to get on from work WiFi and getting blocked. Something to do with the amount of hits?

Anyway, I'll just wait until I (eventually) get home

People aren't blocked for any particular number of hits. Curiosities in search patterns do, like searches that look very automated and/or include characters that would never appear together. And there are a couple different mechanisms I use.

If you would, PM or some other way, send me your IP address. Also include whether or not you can actually see the search page and just not the results page, or you can't see either of them cause that'll help me figure out which category you're in.

You could be caught up in a bulk block. Like if you work for google, as I've completely blocked their IPs, at least those associated with web crawlers.

If you need help grabbing your IP real quick, just go here and it'll tell you your current one:

I should also say that if you do get blocked by my scripts, it tells you to email me so I can correct it.

Someone did once, and it helped me fix a coding error. I'm not perfect. He seemed a little bothered at the time. Never heard back from him after I fixed it. Indignant much?

I'm also not a business and I provide my website and its resources for free. I welcome people to help me make my site better; tell me when something is not working properly and I'll fix it. I'm not a web developer, just an enthusiast who has a few computer skills.

Appreciate it Patrick. Hate to see over 40 years worth of work get destroyed. I wonder why people do things like that. I'll be updating again soon.
