Alot of sites were loading slow yesterday, but I noticed that Computer Cops was especially slow. Now I know why.

It's still going on and it's worse for me today. I'm getting 404 errors at times. If I do connect, it takes awhile for the page to display.

I'm basically putting out a notice to everyone, that unless I can get some sort of serious funding to continue operating then these may be the final days of the sites being in operation. The bad guys are hitting us the only way they can... in the wallet. It'd break my heart to see this place go away because growth has gone far beyond the funding at hand.

Looks like they will be drinking champagne in some boardrooms.

Don't tell them, though they might win individual battles they will lose the war.

More and more warriors are joining up to fight these scum.
