We’re currently under a very large DDoS attack. This is why we have had limited to no connectivity all day today. We’re currently working on fighting this attack with every resource we have. We’ve blocked thousands of IP addresses and ranges, but they just keep coming. I can assure you that we are making progress, as you can see I was able to post in the blog.
I will keep everyone updated as things progress. We’re also under the GUARD thanks to ThePlanet which is able to mitigate a large portion of the attack.

If anyone would like a discount to cover the last few days of questionable connectivity, I understand and if you wish, can be applied to your account. I sincerely apologize for any inconveniences this may have caused you, but I assure you we had every resource available to rectify the situation.
