SIYE Time:7:05 on 4th July 2020

Concerning Fundraising
As many of you know, we recently held a fund raiser to help with SIYE's expenses. This was run by Steve. The money went to install a hardware based firewall which will prevent attacks that led to sporadic downtime over the Christmas season. Also, We have a larger and faster CPU with more memory and the ability to now handle the traffic of our users, seeing as we now have 7000+.
Hopefully this clears up some of the concerns the members of SIYE have about where their money went.

SIYE is one of the most responsible institutions with which I have ever interacted. Okay, I was in the military and all of those don't count. We have...are....and shall continue to accomplish fantastic things. That saying about the whole surpassing the sum of its parts especially applies to SIYE. We are a great team, and shall continue to be. When I am hit by that beer truck next week, I will go with a great deal of pride at having been associated with this bunch. Eric B.

Thank you for clearing that up. Although I didn't donate this time, I was curious as to how that was going over with recent developments. =) I'm glad things are working so well.

Do you have any (technical) details about the attack? Being immersed in the IT business I'm just curious as what's happening out there in the real world. Why would anyone want to attack SIYE? While I'm here - good site. I particularly appreciate the ability to print entire stories in one click.

Brad, PM me and I will explain the ISIT details of the security report, and what happened afterwards.

Is the installation of the firewall why the site has ceased running (hopefully temporarily)
