Sorry for the downtime

As you can see, we were down for a bit. It would seem that we were hacked, and the hackers completely wiped out our database. Thankfully, being the smart people we are, we have a backup. It’s 6 days old, so there will be some stuff missing from the last few days…sorry about that, but at least we haven’t lost everything! In the meantime, Len (the server guy) and I will be looking into how they did it, and trying to keep it from happening again!
