Forum restored

After some very heavy load produced by misbehave BOT crawlers, we have had to shut down the forum intermittently during the past few days. As of now we have implemented several protective measures including DoS attack protection, session number limitation and updating the php software to version 7.2 (although the CRC supports the latest 7.3 the forum software does not yet). As of now The forum software is now operational again, we continue monitoring the forum and keep hopeful the taken measures will suffice. We are sorry for the inconveniences caused by the interruptions (Juan Miguel Artigas Azas)
