    Unfortunately, Some things are out of my control.

    I was able to access the FTP files and do the necessary changes we needed to keep the server stable and lag free. However.. as I finished up, I noticed several errors.

    The Server Host we use, has been feeling the effects of an area DoS Attack, which affected several mainframes in the Seattle area. The attack took control of some of their servers and was used in further attacks on someone else. They have been working to isolate the port address, but have so far, not found it. There was a server reboot that took place yesterday, but the server was immediately re-commandeered.

    Subsequently, our only course of action for the moment is to wait and allow Embercore to do their job as well as they can.

    Please, I discourage inquiring with Embercore, as they have a lot of people hitting them already. I am in contact with the owner, and I will dispense information the moment I have it.

    Everyones patience is greatly appreciated.

    Regards,
    CB

    There's only about 200,000 ports to check through, so it could be a while. Regardless. I've already decided if the situation doesn't resolve in a weeks time from the start of my notification, I'll begin negotiating with another host.

    Can't wait for the server to return, but I understand the issue. Hope it's resolved soon, I still need to venture through my huge cave.

    The server is not down. Everything is up and working much better.

    Please check the Main website page, or the server page, or the server update page. Unfortunately, I did not post it here. I will do it now, and add the link to the main page.
