Site Outage...

Site Outage... news post from TweakTown's online news computing and technology content pages

Alright everyone, this is Thomas the guy who is working behind the scenes to bring new features to Tweaktown like the casemod gallery and maybe some other goodies. Anyways, The server wasn't down. In actuality our host, who is owned by a major ISP where I live, had been the unlucky target of DDOS attack from within their own network. It brought down quite a few sites for a while. Everything is dandy now. Don't worry. It's unlikely that it will happen again as it is a felony to attack companies and whoever is held responsible will probably be looking at jail time...
