    As you've all noticed, something is bringing down TKF's server. :banghead: My hosting company has been working since early yesterday to resolve the issue. It's possible that we're under a DDoS attack, but we're not entirely sure. I still haven't received the "all clear" yet, and until then we should expect further down-times. Thanks for your patience! :cheers:

    Thanks for the note. I had tried to access TKF from different computers and couldn't. I was wondering if there was an issue. Hope it is not as severe as you think.

    We found that TKF was receiving large amounts of traffic from multiple IP addresses from China. Also, a Google bot was indexing the forum rather aggressively. The Chinese IP addresses have been blocked and I've "turned down" the number of times Google can access our server. I'll be monitoring the logs closely for the next several days.
