    Let's just say that we're getting a large number of unwanted guests right now, I couldn't possibly say when, but things will return to normal ASAP.

    A lot of people are having issues getting in, I see around 20 people less now. [​IMG]

    Make sure to register your nick, since you need that now. [​IMG]

    Oh, and JD was trying to hack the main channel, that's how this whole thing started.
