Has pets.ca been down all day? I've been trying to get on since 8:00 this morning with no luck.

Yes, I have been having trouble for about 2 hours now. Sure miss it when it's down! Just hit and miss. I was in, then it went down again, and now I am back in! Keep trying.

As many of you have noticed our site went down for a bit over the past couple of days. Basically hackers tried to knock down our server and thousands of others. We are spending all of our efforts to further protect our system however even larger sites like Ebay have had similar experiences in the past. We were just surprised that someone targeted Pets.ca - let's face it we're a great bunch of benevelent pet lovers that aim to help and never harm others.

All of our information is 100% safe and backed up so thank goodness nothing was lost.

We are setting up an emergency protocol should this ever happen again.

We will be setting up some type of communication system so that we can provide you with information even if the site has a technical issue.
For now though please RECORD THIS EMAIL ADDRESS so that we can all keep in touch and answer each other's questions when the site is down. Please use this email address ONLY if Pets.ca is down.
pets.ca@gmail.com

We'll be posting more information in the days to come.

Thanks for your understanding and patience.

I thought it was just me too... I felt so left out!
I'm glad it's back up and running.
Does anyone else see the wrong time that posts were made?
Chico's post before mine says today at 10:30pm... it's only 4:30 now... I wonder if it has anything to do with the site being down.

Well I was going through withdrawl at my desk this morning especially knowing there were pm's waiting and I could not read them. Plus I don't get online on the weekend so I was way over due for my fix. Thanks for getting us up and running again Marko. Hi my name is Robin and I am a pet.ca addict..........

I thought it was me when I tried to get on at 3a this morning from home.
Then, I couldn't get on from work so I figured it was Pet's server.
Then, I finally just got on and realized there were a lot of posts so I thought it was me again.
Now, I see this post and . . it wasn't me.
And yes, the times are all screwed up for me too.

Anyone else notice that the last user logged on before the board went down was in the forum about BSLs, and went by the name of "Lying Fiberal"?

:D

I actually thought after all the abuse the fiberals have taken they shut us down after they actually had someone read it to them adn explain it all in simplified english

I actually thought one of my co-workers blocked the site. They always tease me about spending to much time looking at puppy porn.

I thought we were having more computer problems, AGAIN! Glad it's not that. But not so happy to hear that it was hijackers either. I am so happy that I am able to post things now.

My feelings were hurt.


I'm over it.


The time thing is messing with my already overworked brain cells though, can we have a check on that?
