To answer all the emails about what happened to our site – no, we weren’t hacked. Neither were we arrested! We are moving to a cheaper, better, faster (promo broucher say one) web host. A lot of time spent on emails back and forth with support on queries about the new web host. After that making sure we backup everything and migrate (very carefully!) our database from one host server to another.

We hope to get everything settled by this weekend so please bear with us!

Oh, and thank you all for the emails, especially the ones that offered to chip in for the server :)
