I have received a couple of PM's from some members stating that there have been some troubles with the site. I just got word that the server-farm that hosts PreparedSociety.com was attacked by a DDoS-attack. For those who don't know what a DDoS is ... Denial-of-service attack - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Due to the attack, the server-farm was shut-down and a specialist was called in to fix the problems. The specialist will attempt to track-down the source of the DDoS-attack and will start legal-actions as soon as possible. In the meantime, as members of the site, you probably don't have any reason to worry about a cascade-effect and a personal DDoS attack .... just keep reading and posting as per normal.
