Website problems- so sorry!

Hi to all Cpner's-

Our server went down for puzzling but solvable reasons. And, to all you early adopters of www.cpnhelp.org, no it wasn't me and flagyl!

Three cheers for our developer Kent for resolving the problem! He's in New Zealand, and the time difference can actually be helpful when problems happen in US time zone "after hours."

We have also been struggling with an onslaught of spam bots causing a lot of behind the scenes havoc. While our spam blockers have kept most spam out of the site, these bots were trying to register as site users at machine speed: multiple times per minute for 24 hours a day!
