    Dear members,

    DFI is back after a nearly day-long outage. It was a technical snag caused by a DDoS attack, and some troubles we had getting in touch with the hosting company to fix it, that made the downtime so long.

    Meanwhile our servers got some much needed rest, and we hope you enjoyed your break off DFI, too.

    Now, back to posting.

    Same message for me.

    Forbidden 403.

    I thought I was banned and since I have been a 'good boy', I was real concerned as to what was up.

    I even rang Yusuf since he knows much about the Forum and its working.

    I think there should be some alternate way to contact the Admins so that we can know what's up.

    I had given up the ghost.

    Antmony rang me up and he told me that he was able to access and so here I am.

    It is good to be back!

    Missed DFI for past 1 day. Glad its back. Need a way for the members to be able to contact the admins. Will soon create an e-mail ID where you can contact the DFI staff.

    OMG, i was pestering AV for the past 1 day about when the DFI will be back and he might have literally lost his cool to reply with in IM. :happy_2:

    Some rots have started their business to curb others, This is really ***^*&&%^& work. Lets give the invaders a p**s :emot159:

    Ray Sir, co Admins CAN'T BE BANNED!!! YIPEEE !!!
    Great to see DFI back. With me in mumbai and nothing much to do, missed DFI all the more. I guess a lot of people would have realised how addictive DFI is, if they didn't already.

    The idea of a mail id for staff is great but I think it cannot be in the open for all as the same aholes who DDOSed us will misuse it. At best we can have one for staff use only.
