Hello,

As you may have noticed, we were down since last night. The problem was because someone had hacked the site and was using it to mass mail spam emails. I have turned off most of the email features which should prevent this problem from happening again but it also means that some features will no longer work. Sorry about that but it is unavoidable.

Tom

Thank you for all you do... I had serious panic attacks last night when it said I was "forbidden" I thought either someone was mad at me or my husband found a way to keep me out!!!! Very Happy
