Gord wrote an excellent rant today in his blog and you should go see it. I understand exactly what he's saying and a few folks came to mind while I was there. Sad but true.
JBP-JSS-Tripler: back up and running. Update:
(^_^) JBP & JSS-Tripler - DDoS Attack Aftermath!
Welcome to all our new members!
During the past 24 hours our servers were subjected to a devastating DDOS (Distributed Denial of Service) attack.
Fortunately, today we were able to implement "DDOS protection" to nullify the current attack and also to protect against future attacks.
So we're back in business! You should now be able to access the JBP, JSS-Tripler and JSS sites for business as usual, although for some of you, propogation maybe still need to happen - this can take another 24 hours possibly.
Meanwhile, the 2% earnings will NOT be paid tomorrow. We'll resume the daily 2% earnings 24 hours later, just as to be expected.
Also, because of the servers being down we're unable to pay tonight's withdrawals. We'll also resume paying withdrawals as soon as we can, most probably tomorrow also.
As described in the previous update, this downtime is no reason for panic. Last August we had a "business time-out" for over a month while we did a Restart and moved to offshore servers. After
that we came back in full force!
Working for our wealth and success,
Compound150: I see Dave has been toying with the idea to do something similar as JBP with regards to offering a Free (or two free) DP's to new members. Of course just like JBP, this would be a loan and would be deducted out of your account balance after a certain period of time.
Well, I think it's a great idea and should help to bring in new members who want to dip a toe in the water before jumping in.
I'll keep you updated.
aDailyCash: the 3% daily continues and today, I can't decide whether to cash out or buy more. I normally switch back-n-forth but last time, I did both on the same day. So I need to give it more thought. In any case, it's running great!
Mint.bz: I'm so silly sometimes. Requested a cash out yesterday via AP but never entered my AP email in the "preferences" section. Duh! Admin Chris was nice enough to send an email to let me know what the hold up was.
So don't get stuck like I did. Check under Main Menu, Preferences, and add your pay processor info before asking for a payment.
PS, just got Paid. Thanks Chris.
Now I gotta get back to working on my tax return :(
