    Threats are still being made against the host. The attack has stopped for now but they are continuing to demand money or they will attack again. It's highly possible the site will go down again today. If it does just keep trying to access the site and hopefully they will have it back up sooner than they did yesterday. It was down for over 7 hours. [banghead]

    Not sure of that yet all I know is that the FBI is involved but it seems that the attacker(s) are overseas.

    Today I'm having the site moved to a business server with the same host. There may be a small amount of downtime.
