Denial of Service Attack
the main popmonkey server (which hosts most of your websites and all your mail) was attacked by a DOS (Denial of Service) attack from a machine in croatia (as far as I can tell). The DOS had serious effects on the service, causing complete outtage of services on the 25th, and extremely slow performance of the mail server on the 26th. this is the first time in the two years since the server was implemented that service was so miserable. the security hole which allowed the DOS to succeed has been plugged. we thank you for your support.
