    OK, so I don't think anyone posted this yet, but it looks like spelchek.com (it'a a website that gives free spell checks, and that a lot of forums use as the default spell check option) has been hacked. The "United Arab Hackers" now claim to own the site, wtf? Jihad online?

    Forgive me if I'm being naive, but why would anyone want to hijack a spell checking site?

    Unless my memory is playing tricks on me our site was hacked by a group out of Turkey in 2006. We were back up and running within a couple of days.

    Hooray, Rob_E!
