Hello Everyone,

Please bear with us while we deal with what has happened.

The site is definitely not back working fully yet. I expect to have it fully functional again shortly.

You should be able to log in now - and I am in there tweaking and messing with a lot of knobs & switches to bring it back up to full steam so please bear with me.


Gotta love hackers. Thanks for my present! It has been fun!

Just an update - will be down today while we update and install patches to keep this from happening again.

As of Wednesday, we're still down. Actually it is up but I am blocking all IP's except mine and the tech person. We're making it bulletproof as much as possible.

I've e-mailed Erik, but I don't get any response :-(

Guys, everyone, I am really sorry. The site got really peppered with hacker junk and it has been difficult to get it back up and running stable. I've received quite a bit of mail about this and I sincerely apologize for not being able to respond to each one. The site is up and about 80% fixed, all accounts intact, and running. I am just blocking traffic to it with the exception of myself and the tech person.

I am really sorry this happened and I expect to have the site up and running again, visible to the world by today or tomorrow. At this point I am paying out of pocket to make it happen.

Please remember how much you love when the new stickers and clothing comes out

Thanks Erik

I understand! I was just worried it would never be back, and it is an extremely valuable site!

I'll definately support the site any way I can.

I'm just kidding about the stickers and clothing. They are coming though.

I have a feeling that by 9PM tonight the site will be restored to its former glory and you can use it as normal.

Thanks very much for your patience. Everyone on here and CCFan has been very understanding. I can't say the same for some of the email I've received about the outage. It kind of takes a lot of restraint to remind someone that it is, has always been, and will always be a FREE site - and sometimes s**t happens and someone finds a vulnerability. I run the site out of my pocket. I don't pepper it with ads. When people send the angry email it is hard to respond in a really constructive way - so I don't respond to those :-)

The site is coming back. I am looking at it right now. Running like a champ. Just needs some final tweaks.

Thanks again,

We're back up. Mostly.

I need to make some slight visual tweaks to it over the next few days to get it looking exactly as it did, pre-hack. There are also a few modules that need to be tweaked... but the forums are up and thats the biggie.

And as always PayPal donations of any amount to erikjernberg [at] never get rejected :-)

Thanks for all of your patience and enjoy the site!
