This week aquahobby.net went down. After requesting assistance from the hosting support, they found that just about every configuration file had been deleted, and they had to start a completely new account for me. Only minor parts of the site were affected...nothing really serious. Thank goodness it was aquahobby.net and not .com! Shocked

Marc0s was employed by us, the Yellow llamas, to carry out the secret mission code named "best aquarium site ever". Unfortunately, Marc0s was just too good for the job, and created the perfect site. Because of this, small groups of jealous cyborg hackers (people who spend so long on the PC their fingers have moulded into the keyboard giving complete control) spend hours of their time trying to discover what makes the site so amazing. Fortunately for us, they haven't yet developed the brain power to realise that .net is not as important as .com. Well done Marc0s, the Yellow llamas are pleased with your progress, keep up the good work Very Happy .
