Site is back up!

Monday, May 26th, 2008

Hi Everyone-
Many you may have noticed our site was down for several days this past week. Sincere apologies to all, apparently our site’s WordPress directory got hit with a pretty nasty virus that shut the whole thing down. We were forced to reinstall and upgrade our WordPress back-end and migrate the whole site over, so it took us a bit. Thanks for your patience and welcome back!
