    I thought it odd that it crashed almost right when Obama's speech began Wednesday. The conspiracy theorist in me thinks the attack on NWFA was part of a coordinated attack on other gun related websites.

    Started getting a warning when I attempted to log on that there was malware on the site. Then it was down,, I'm sure glad it's back up. Thanks Joe!

    The timing sure was "convenient". Sketchy, hope there's a good explanation from Joe soon, if he and his family are ok...

    Which other site? Curious of its local/regional, if the attack(s) were NW specific or just gun specific (or coincidental).

    I think the site got hacked a few days ago. I got warnings on my browser about it. The next day the site went down. See the screen shots that I captured below.

    Seattleguns.net was up. NWFA was probably pretty isolated. Glad it's back up and running!

    I got a warning of possible DoS and then it went to "down for maintenance" within 20 minutes. "Maintenance" for several days, however, bothered me.

    I think Al Gore sold the Internet with his 'Currents' channel to Al jazeer.

    did Aynonomas get through.. Anyways Happy to see everyone again! I was not able to participate in today's rallies but i heard that there was an awesome turn out! I was acaully going through my orientation at Tri County Gun club. Got there an hour early to make sure i was not turned away. They ended up turning away more that 150 people this am. They are only doing one, maybe 2 more before they start wait listing. next one is the third Saturday of Feb, I have been going there for years as a guest of my fathers and i have to say that it is a awesome place.

    Ok, here's my personal opinion based on practical expertise, unless:
    1. NWFA is a lot bigger from a data & capacity point of view than what it appears to be, or ...
    2. Maintenance was being done manually rather than being automated, or ...
    3. The maintenance team is not big enough for the website
    I find a routine maintenance downtime of 3 days a little suspicious.

    it was a malware situation combined with a routine maintenance as per the notifications I received . still, a little suspect at any measure.

    glad it's back up. the classified setup here is vastly superior to other sites .

    What the heck are you talking about??? Global warming was not George Bush's fault, it was Al Gore's.

    Everything ELSE was Bush's fault.
