    Hi all,

    I finally received a reply from our host in regards to all the downtime (500 Internal Server Error, Server Not Found...) that we've been having over the past few days. We were down for over 12 hours Tuesday night until Wednesday afternoon and intermittently thereafter.

    Our server was flooded with malicious attacks and also endured a hardware component failure. We've been moved to a faster server which will hopefully improve service, but the move itself was associated with slowdowns and downtime as well. Hopefully the upgrade will be able to cope with the DDoS attacks. Please feel free to report any problems you are having by replying to this thread!

    Sorry for the inconvenience and thank you for your patience!
