Server Upgrade

Recently has been experiencing a lot of lag due to higher traffic combined with a slew of Distributed Denial of Service attacks. This is why many visitors have been experiencing long wait times when loading the site, or sometimes even complete inability to load a page. However, we have spent the last two weeks hardening the server security and eliminating hacker threats, so the DDoS attacks shouldn't come back anymore.

As for the lag from traffic, we will be adding a second dedicated server to the existing one for the site, so we can distribute the resources and workload between two computers instead of one. Hopefully, this will be seamless as possible with no downtime, but you MAY experience occasional lag in the next week or two while we perform this upgrade.

Thanks for everyone's patience and loyalty to
