Hello again, all!

Wow, three updates in the same night. This may be the last one unless we come up with anything else, but things are stable again, quicker than first anticipated. We have taken steps to provide an additional layer of security to prevent any problems immediately following, though such are not anticipated now that the initial hit is over with.

Dragoneer has even very helpful in providing his experience to help smooth things along as well as aiding us in our investigation. We've been able to log several distinct IPs of the most likely origins of the attack on our servers (due to highest activity) and recorded in our logs: ... sesup1.png

There are others, but I would rather not spam your window. I've passed these IPs to some friends to look up..see if we can't track 'em down. More importantly, we're back and running, no muss, no fuss. It's probably better that this was an attack hitting us towards the tail end of peak hours when our servers were coming down from full capacity and not as loaded. Well, we're all pretty much taking this as validation that we're growing as a community and, apparently, doing *something* right here. We'll keep at it, especially with your continued solicitation of our TF2 and L4D servers. Have fun all, and thanks for your time!
