    Not sure what it took, or how many had their hands involved with it, but having the site back up is truly appreciated.

    Thank you.

    Well said, NEM!

    It's a great relief to see the site back -- I can only imagine how much aggravation and hard work it has meant for Ian. Just in time for the Predict the Score contest ...

    I'm glad PatsFans is back online as well NEM, but I recall NO ONE that called Ian anything that was offensive.

    would you care to enlighten me?

    who is not a PatriotsPlanet regular, just so we are clear, right?

    because saying "certain posters at the other place" could be construed as PP regulars which may be misleading to people here reading this, right?

    just so we are clear

    Even if Ian's dog peed on the server, we still owe him thanks. Now if this was some sort of cat issue, I have a beef. Unless it was handled (Glock 17) swiftly.

    thanks for clearing that up NEM because we wouldn't want it being said definitively that some PatriotsPlanet REGULAR member said derogatory things about the PatsFans Site Owner Ian over there.

    that might send a completely different message to the members here as to what PatriotsPlanet might stand for other than your own opinion of it as stated above, which is a completely different matter.

    just so we are clear

    I appreciate the efforts to get the site back, but I also note that this site seems to be using the same webhost as it was before. In other words, either the attackers gave up for now or the webhost got their act together to filter them out. So based on what Ian has said about moving to a new site this weekend, I expect a little more downtime if indeed the site is moved to a host which can better choke off DOS attacks.

    Thank you, Ian!!! I posted on the Planet yesterday that I felt like a crack addict needing a fix, they were very gracious there but this is the best site for pats fans, bar none!!!

    Thanks, Ian, for getting the site back up. I'm sure it was a very aggravating few days there.

    I have one more big thing I need to finish that will likely keep me up late again tonight. Hopefully this will be the final time, and we'll never have this issue again.

    Whoever did this BTW targeted PatsFans.com in particular (we're on a server with many other sites, businesses, etc.), so apparently we're not too popular with someone.
