We're Back Online

Sorry about the downtime over the past 24 hours or so. Our server was attacked and some of the code was horribly vandalized.

As I was telling @quickshot, who, along with @fenwick, first noticed and reported the issue, that I am thankful that we implemented daily backups of the code base and data. Some files may still be problematic, so if anyone notices weird behavior on any pages, please post details.

    Kudos to Mitch also, who was kind enough to send me a note to ensure that I was aware of the issues. (Yup, I'm finally getting through my inbox after a solid 24 hours of cleaning the site code.)

    All I can say is that it takes a sick puppie to vandalize web sites. You would think they would take that knowledge and do some good with it.

    Well, we actually got hit again last night, but it didnt take the site down.

    Apparently it is typically grade-school kids doing it. Too much free time on their hands.

    I thought there were laws against hacking and fiddle fing with web sites. I'm sure the FCC has bigger fish to fry.

    If it's some kid he's lucky he didn't grow up in my generation. The wooden paddle with the holes in it sure put the fear of God in my heart but mostly just below the belt line on the back side and straight to my head and this was in grade school. In Jr. High we had to make our own in shop class. I even sanded, stained and put a finish coat of varnish on mine. It prolonged the inevitable.

    Me thinks it's one of your former spammers but I could be wrong.
