Hey Everyone!

Since the meeting we had, I have had a horrible time with hackers messing up the site. My personal belief is that the host is primarily to blame.

A little more Technical information:
The host told me that I was being hacked through what is knows as a MySQL Injection attack. If you tried to visit the site shortly after, you would have seen a simple page - no programing at all. After that the site was taken over a few more times. This basically inferred that the site was not being taken over as the host had initially said. Later I had an issue where the site was redirecting the user to a different site. The Host then told me that it was a simple DNS issue. This means that someone from within the hosting company was at fault.

That hosting company is Gazzin - Worst hosting company ever. I have now switched to HostGator.Com. The servers are located out of Texas. I see this as a temporary place where I can work on the site, the users can use it, and hopefully I can make the site more useful soon.

I want to apologize to everyone that this has taken so long. I hope that I can now have some extra time to work on the site. If you find any errors, please just ignore them for now as I have a lot of plans and things will be changing and all errors will be fixed when I get to them.
