OffG is back online currently running at around 80%

Tuesday night (BST) our infrastructure went on the fritz for reasons we’re still trying to figure out. After consultations with server managers and hours of debugging we now have the site back at about 80% functionality.

There are still some issues, and we still don’t know what happened. Maybe some type of perfect storm of minor issues combined t create a major issue. Or maybe there are other factors. We haven’t on this occasion seen any evidence of an attack and no malware has been located.

However we do note there were some odd goings-on with browser autofills just before this happened.

We’re hoping to be back to full power some time tomorrow (Friday). Meantime please share this.

Welcome back. I am glad you are up and running again. It was quite odd wading through the MSM papers without my daily dose of sanity and real perspective that you at Off G and majority of comments offer. Thanks all for all you do.

Thanks from all of us to all of you kind people sending us support and welcoming us back. It’s good to be amongst you all again!

Great to see you back. It will probably get a lot worse yet. I have no idea where you host your stuff, but you are obviously having an effect, and winning the argument. If you were crap, you would be ignored.

Well done and Thanks. I guess I should send you some money for Christmas.

Much relieved to have you back!

“we still don’t know what happened”

Assnage is in a bad state, he’s been effectively tortured. That’s one thing that we learnt.

Controlled Mass Media must pay the price for their silence.

A few days ago, a commenter predicted this website will disappear in 2 years.
Don’t you think, he’s very optimistic?

Maggie

No Formulas, not optimistic, just realistic. The establishment will NOT allow free speech, especially when it exposes all their dirty games.
And the controlled Media Presstitutes are already being paid handsomely for their silence, and are even given knighthoods depending on the influence they can bring to bare on the idiot proles. So I don’t see what other payment you think they will receive?

“A few days ago, a commenter predicted this website will disappear in 2 years.”

Only if we let it. Some time ago I offered to run a mirror but I have since come to realize that that just duplicates the centralization that facilitates attacks and that a better solution is to start with existing services such as Tor hidden services or Freenet, then develop a more sophisticated, granular approach combining useful bits of those existing methods with as-yet uninvented methods, like–say–a granular, dynamically distributed and retrieved, co-operatively donated, geographically-scattered, realtime-reconstructed RAID-like database, as when writing and reading a file to and from a highly fragmented, encrypted disk, in some sort of Distributed Assurance of Service (“DAoS”). As far as I’m aware, the amazing connectivity of the current WWW, with many of its pages being assembled from multiple, geographically discrete, client-and-server-coordinated sources, including realtime-auctioned advertisements, took a bit of ingenuity to get sorted, and there’s no reason to suppose that–short of the imminent ecogeddon–ingenuity has yet been mined out, (particularly in the context of survival)…

Thank goodness, and well done. In your absence I felt seriously alone in my thoughts. I live on my own and whilst my border collie is intelligent it’s not that fruitful to bounce thoughts off her! Glad to have my worldwide ‘extended family’ back!

What a beautifully profound comment, JudyJ: that any Border Collie can relate to, when listening up at a distance and understands full well, (when herding sheep), together … 😉

Hi Judy, There are other sites you can keep up to date with, and can comment on all of them.. I often leave the sound on the pertinent videos while I read and take part in Off Guardian..
Take a peek at these:
UK Column – https://www.ukcolumn.org/ukcolumn-news-archive
Ryan Dawson – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YeKm5QhEAwo (911) This lad hits the nail every time. He has had to move out and lives somewhere in Japan now but the agencies are hot on his tail…
Veterans Today – https://www.veteranstoday.com/2019/10/24/assange-extradition/
RT – https://www.rt.com/
Craig Murray – https://www.craigmurray.org.uk/
Jimmy Dore – primarily US news but totally perceptive when he covers UK- https://jimmydorecomedy.com/watch/
James Corbett – https://www.corbettreport.com/

Thanks, Maggie. I shall certainly venture to look at these other sites. I do already occasionally post comments on Craig Murray’s blog (but under a different ‘pen name’ – and, no, I’m not @SharpEars or the erstwhile @Charles Bostock!). But OffG is very much my favourite for various reasons.

“Ryan Dawson – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YeKm5QhEAwo (911)”

Hadn’t seen this guy before. I don’t think he’ll get very far. Not enough bullshit.

Maggie
Maggie

Really Rob? I thought that was what we were trying to eliminate on Off G.
Ryan has been investigating for twenty years and ALL his findings are INVALUABLE to those of us seeking the absolute truth.
He has been taken down too many times to even post here, but continues regardless.
Do yourself a favour and make it your goal to watch everything he posts.. Begin here:

It’s over two hours long but you can leave the sound running while you get on with other business if inclined?
It takes a lot of concentration to absorb everything Ryan says. I have watched/listened four times.
Everything he says can be cross referenced.
I thank him for every minute he has dedicated to bringing the truth to us. And the fact that he has been driven out of his home and country, but still refuses to stop.

Robbobbobin

“Really Rob? I thought that [bullshit] was what we were trying to eliminate on Off G.”

Try reading what I wrote again. I did not reference the Off-G.

“…he has been driven out of his home and country…”

For instance.

“…you can leave the sound running while you get on with other business if inclined?”

I am so inclined, but I can’t do it. When it comes to absorbing information I can’t multitask. “Podcasts” are useless for me–I have to keep stopping and replaying every few sentences even in single tasking mode. Lectures were hell. They’re why, before the days of personal audio recorders, I learned shorthand. Even transcripts take me longer, often far longer, to get through than (it seems) they do for others, but at least they’re quicker to digest than original audio or video. In the short 911 clip you referenced (which worked for me, incidentally) take–for instance–Mr Dawson’s quick passing reference to the planes having–on most trajectories through the buildings–to pass through only two walls rather than the many such obstacles that most people rabbit on about. Easy to miss that that’s probably a reference to the real estate marketing genius behind the then relatively unique multistory building method of sharing support only two ways, between an inner core and an external load-bearing wall, as distinct from the widely distributed load-bearing structures with simple facade-only external curtain walls that had hitherto been the norm. It’s a lot quicker to flick your eyes about a page (and chasing up any arising questions externally) than cueing up replays (especially with YouTube’s usual-for-Google still-clunky user interface).

“It takes a lot of concentration to absorb everything Ryan says.”

It takes a lot of concentration to absorb everything anyone says, particularly when you broaden the bandwidth with video. More so with personal presence. And all the normal resistances we humans have to absorbing, assessing, accommodating and integrating new (or “new”) information (or “information”) and viewpoints don’t help.

Rob, I sent you a Ryan Dawson link previously.
When attempting to pick it up again ‘after’ it stated it was inaccessible……

It might just be a run of the mill hardware or software fault, but you never can be too sure these days. Just look at what happened to the ever diligent DNC. Come to think of it, have you guys thought of hiring Crowdstrike?

Or Imran AWAN ?

Oh wait, he’s already in prison. Damn the Dems. sure do pick’em and some mothers

Yeah. I was forgetting about the Awan brothers. Didn’t they have a large cache of hard disk drives squirrelled away? Just the guys you need for a few spares.

Tim Jenkins

The Awan brothers are all out of spares, after their lift shaft depository was revealed & emptied, as plea bargain by Imran: but you could check with any democratic investigator of the Awan brothers, in case they are doing a car boot sale of left over, bleach-bitten servers that they don’t want the FBI to find, ‘Cash’ like, obviously … Imran is inside: Intel. guys pressured him to reveal the location of said cache, however, curiously, his brother is already dead, ‘officially’, after accelerating his Tesla into a tree, whereupon it caught fire: and just to be sure, lol, it caught fire again, after it was Extinguished & Delivered to the police compound, extinguished again, just to make sure all & any evidence was destroyed … except maybe teeth ? Don’ ask me. Best ask Imran, who’ll be out (amazingly), in 4 years time, but, best be quick coz’, you know… when the HillBilly Clinton Clan could still be exposed completely with what he had/has on them & many others, maybe, well, how should I say this … ?

Life expectancy, reduces … 😉 , bit like Epstein’s and many others.
Quick as a flash, be gone.

I reckon ole’ HillBilly could even have something on Judge Arbuthnot presiding over Assange or her lorded husband, after all the ole’ Epstein Vids. missing in action, including Bills? who knows, but one way or another, CIA/GCHQ & HRC & Senate & Congress, have been very very compromised the HillBilly Clan and Hollywood Horror Films can be made in real time live soon, with little or ground zero editing …
I’m a bit old for popcorn, but I’m gonna’ grab some nuts & . . .
best stock up. Crunchin’ times approachin’ 🙂

I hadn’t heard that about his brother. Just goes to show; I try and keep up with the ongoing procedural drama that is the FBI/CIA/DNC/GOP Game of Thrones and but it’s just not possible.

It does make wonder about Tesla. Barely a day goes by without one of them doing something fatally disastrous. Some ready made plausible deniability right there. No wonder the government kept handing them money.

Former IT aide Imran Awan received no jail time Tuesday after a federal judge said he had “suffered enough.”

Imran choked back tears, saying, “We want to thank the prosecution, the FBI and the Capitol Police,” while his lawyer submitted a letter referring to President Donald Trump, Sen. Chuck Grassley and other Republications as “deranged,” “pathetic” and “without a shred of decency.”

Crunch 🙂 you could have mentioned the juicy Dems. bits first and foremost their systems of background checks on Government Personnel. “Suffered enough”? Compared to Assange ? Sense the contempt, absurdity & double standards ? Maybe, Julian should make an urgent plea on behalf of his father’s legacy,
if Dad could just feign some illness …
Pass the soap. (Real dirty hands that ‘feed’ BS, quite clearly compromised …)

“Or Imran AWAN ?”

In this instance, “Crowdstrike” is a more directly relevant suggestion than “AWAN”.

Well done ‘guys’: better safe than sorry, in these times of not just fake news, moreover, FAKE EMAILS are an existential threat to every & any innocent person’s
‘Liberty’, quite literally ! Think about it, Fascism pure 100% ! With no recourse . . .

The Guilty Evil Intelligence (grounded in & interconnected physically to the parallel platforms run by our National Security States), is out of control and running very scared, like a cornered Rat, it will bite and is biting right now: and of course, it is no coincidence that Julian Assange was in court this week and OffG is one of the few places we could have found some UNCENSORED OBJECTIVITY, on this appalling, outrageous, disgusting, cowardly contravention of elementary Human Rights. Sickening UK JUDGES !

We are now playing ‘Catchup’, which was always the Deep State way & goal: and highly likely the reason why OffG has experienced such problems. So, just to catch up, whilst juggling the latest events elsewhere, let us not lose sight of what happened this week to JA, in court, and perhaps a certain magistrate needs to consider her position more professionally, in future >>> she should be challenged publicly, unquestionably, just like Arbuthnot who should have recused herself given hubby’s position as accused by JA & Wikileaks: we don’t need legal minds like either of them, in Future, nor that inherent systemic moral corruption, without any accountability >>> So, Let’s expose them & SACK THEM ! Forever barred from their so called profession: Justice prevails ! ? Or are Judges above the

Laws of Humanity ! ?

Enough is Enough: any judge whomsoever considers obeying orders, not the Law, should be HUNG !
Starting with Arbuthnot ! A traitor to her Profession & Nation, very clearly …

Even on Bail, Kim is prepared to stand up & speak out for Julian Assange !
So must we … CENSORSHIP is IMMORAL & SCIENTIFICALLY Dumb !
Let us expose quite simply why.

Thank God for that! Your absence scared the shit out of me there! And this statement got me thinking:

“We haven’t on this occasion seen any evidence of an attack …. However we do note there were some odd goings-on …”

Yes – it seems that the internet is undergoing such curious mutations that it might be getting more and more difficult to identify malarky.

“… it seems that the internet is undergoing such curious mutations that it might be getting more and more difficult to identify malarky.”

Have you ever talked to Microsoft’s parrot when something unexplained brings down your system and it’s 18.5 miles of unrelated-to-anything-with-half-a-brain code and you turm to them for “support”? It goes like this: “Squawk, squawk, have you tried re-installing Windows, sir?” And that’s only one shitty, unreliable software barf-bag. The Internet is millions of the fucking things in all sorts of different shapes and colours, all trying to “communicate” with each other at once.

George Mc

Sometimes I think the internet is like a vast pitch black cavern in which you can hear plenty of voices but never see anyone. So you never know who you are talking to. And a lot of people are good at giving a misleading impression of themselves e.g. by coming on like authoritative smartarses when a few comments later they seem to crack and I end up feeling guilty of causing distress to people who really couldn’t take it. Indeed sometimes I think I may be talking to kids. And I have even had suspicions that some people are not people at all but software. To riff on your Tower of Babel image, the internet sometimes looks like a nest of demons weaving illusions.
