New on here but does anybody know what is up with kiteforum. Is the site just down, or is it gone for good?

sadly there are a lot of lowlives on the internet who just live for exploiting security holes, some because they just like to have another person suffer, and some because they think they have a personal vendetta against microsoft, the internet can be a pretty hostile place, a place where our most inner and evil thoughts can come to light without society holding them in check.

Toby gave me another update on Saturday. Kitebeaches.com should be
back online Monday. All the new content going into Kiteforum.com is
demanding more time to complete and will require some days longer. I
think Toby has been planning some major changes for quite a while now.
The hacking and messing with the site have given him as good as
reason as any to make the modifications now.

In the meantime, you have this very nice site here full of useful information. It is a great resource.

Thanks Rick. We've just updated everything to the latest version with security updates so hopefully the bored kids in the world won't see fit to come around here with their malicious intents. :roll:
