Some of you may be wondering what happened to Given To Wail. Some of you might be wondering which rumor to believe... did they pay their bill? Did they sell the site? Were they finally shut down? Did they just give up on it?
The answer to all of those questions is no. The server we are on was attacked and everything was lost last week. Fortunately, I've kept backups of all the pages, articles and tabs on the site. While that may seem like some bit of relief, trust me, it's not. Unfortunately, our database was lost and thus all of our forum information and some site info. Rebuilding will take some time as I plan on using this opportunity to move Given To Wail towards are more community based project. We're not going anywhere.
In fact, your help could probably be of service. The basic plan right now is the wiki route. Once things start getting set up and information reloaded, if you feel you can help out with content or graphics or info or anything, please feel free to contact me.
Don't worry, the first thing that will be brought back will be the tabs. Or the forum. Whichever comes easier. It'll just take some time so those of us working on it appreciate your patience. One last thing (a couple really) just to clear up some issues, no one at this site will get you in touch with Mike. Ever. No one at this site ever took donated money for Katrina victims and spent it.
So, thanks for your understanding and we'll be back soon.
