Hi Everyone,

The sites on the Sailing Forums Network server have been moving incredibly slowly over the last 24-48 hours. I have fully investigated our server and found no problem, however I did contact the data center where our machine is located and here is their response:

Hello, we are currently experiencing a ddos attack at the edge of our network. This is negatively affecting server by creating packet loss and high latency times. We understand this is affecting your business. We are working to have it solved as soon as possible. Thank you for your patience.
In the past the company has been very quick at fixing any troubles launched their way. Right now they are in a difficult situation as a group of ill intended hackers is attempting to take their network down. Please be patient and thank you for using the forum!
