I wanted to pop in quickly and thank each and everyone of you for all the support you offered to us during last week's Denial of Service attack against Bilerico Project. I literally got hundreds of e-mails, Twitters, and Facebook messages from readers. Some offered technical know-how, others just sent messages of support and a few of you even offered to "attack them back" on our behalf. (We politely declined, but the offer was sweet nonetheless!)

I was honestly surprised by the outpouring of support. The Advocate had news of Bilerico's attack as the top story on their website this weekend. Sirius OutQ did a news segment on it. Several of you posted to your own blogs about it.

Thanks to all of you for everything you did for us. We love all of you and we're thankful for such a great group of Projectors. Everything is back up to normal; we lost no data. And we gained several new friends that aren't just readers anymore.
