      We 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.

      Hi Mark --
      Could you please give us a brief update? 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,
