Subj: Re: BBA WebsiteWe were hacked, and our agency takes security very seriously so it's taking a while to get authorization to go back online. All the data are safe (please reassure people); so while the policy seems strict, it's to ensure the protection of our long-term databases.REALLY hoping to get back up before the long 4th of July weekend... but cannot promise anything.

The troops are getting restive.I apologize for direct contacts from others in Florida -- I don't encourage it.If you answer only my [few? enquires] then we can train them gently. I have 5 listserves and a Facebook page where I can relay the word.I am also emailing this same message to your Webmaster, in case that bypasses you and saves you time. I hope he can say a little more than"We are working on bringing the server back online as soon as possible".Many Thanks,Rick
