    Just to let you know that this afternoon's lack of service was due to the entire host's company coming under a Denial of Service attack, during which time the servers were flooded with incoming requests. As a precaution our databases were taken offline to protect them from any vulnerability that could be exploited under such load.

    But we survived and i'm sure STB wasn't the target.
