Switching Owner Company – again

Hello all,
As some of you may be aware, I’m now living in Australia and have been for a few months. A few years ago, the company that owns DearDiary.Net (and OpenFiction) was renamed from Hamiko Ltd to Kabarty Ltd though it’s taken some time for parts of the site to be updated to reflect that. Probably there’s still some remnants of the old name left even now.

However, this time, the ownership is being transferred from Kabarty Ltd (a UK registered company) to Kabarty Pty Ltd (an Australian registred company). The only area this will really affect (apart from cosmetically on the site) is the Plus payments system, which will switch from showing Kabarty Ltd to showing Kabarty Pty Ltd. However, as they’re totally seperate PayPal accounts, it’s possible that something may go wrong.

I’ve tested a transaction myself and it went through OK and ‘Plussed’ my account. However, if you try to go Plus and it doesn’t automatically add your payment, or something else goes wrong, please visit The Support Pages and let me know.

It should be noted that the ownership of both Kabarty Ltd and Kabarty Pty Ltd is staying with Steve and Rose, nothing’s changing there. It’s just for ease of accounting (and I’m getting bored of doing returns for 2 companies!).

If you’ve any questions feel free to drop us a line!
Steve and Rose.

You've sent something to our server to which it objects

Or, you just get a 403, Forbidden error message…

Yeah, sorry. The server was recently compromised by some unscrupulous bots that exploit weaknesses in various scripts that are available on the internet. Usually phpBB, but the list is growing. I’ve therefore tightened up the security settings for the server, but it appears these settings are a little too tight in places.

If you see the ‘You have sent some data to our server to which it objects’ screen, please drop me a line and let me know what you were trying to send and to which diary you were trying to send it. I can then use that information to loosen the security settings again for the DearDiary site.

Sorry for the inconvenience. If you want someone to blame, blame the people who have nothing better to do but hijack other peoples computers for their own purposes. *sigh*
