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.

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".
