Hi guys,
For the last four days the P2W site has been under a Distributed Denial Of Service Attack (DDoS)
Basically this is some smart-arse sending thousands of connections from multiple sources to our server in an attempt to overload it.
It's the equivalent of ringing your land-line and hanging up when you answer.
The attack will cause no damage, but access to the site may be very slow and emails may not get through due to the high network traffic.

I am not sure why someone would bother launching such an attack on our piddling little server, but I have taken steps to ensure it goes away soon.

If anyone has been trying unsuccessfully to contact us, please do so by PM here.

regards
Owen Dare
