Ladies,

I guess everything happens today doesn't it.

We have experienced a DDOS attack from Asia (Distributed Denial Of Service i.e. someone is making a ton of page requests per second in an effort to bring your site down), hence the downtime. We managed to isolate the offending IP addresses and block them but the attack is still going on but on a smaller scale.

We are working on getting this issue sorted out so please be a bit patient.

Thanks!

Who does a DDOS without a way to profit? :whyme: They need to kick rocks. Go play in banking traffic...:rolleyes:

Most DDOS attacks come from spite and boredom. It is unfortunate but it is what it is. Certain people get a kick out of bringing a site down.

Why the target was us, I really don't know... SMH
