By: EngineeringMarch 8, 2007
We apologize for the difficulties you may have had in connecting to the site over the past 48 hours. was attacked repeatedly by a malicious technology called a "botnet." This means that the site was bombarded by data that overloaded our firewalls. We had to take the site down in order to protect it, and so we could make sure that every possible countermeasure was being taken.

We will do our best to keep the site up and running, and will keep you informed of new developments. Thank you for your patience and your understanding.
