Still not working for me either. Hopefully the owners of the site are trying to fix the problem, that really sucks for everyone who has babies listed.

He estimates the site to be back up Tuesday Nov. 6th.
His email:
The server is currently under DDoS attack (ie, someone is flooding the server with hundreds of thousands of fake requests thereby overloading the server and not allowing genuine user requests to be processed). No data has been stolen or lost, nor has the server been hacked.
My data center says the ETA to get the new DDoS security blocking equipment in and configured is Tuesday Nov 6th. At that time, which can’t come soon enough, hopefully things will return to normal.
No idea on who is doing this or why. Best guess is that it is a disgruntled competitor of one of my businesses (MusicStack, Bear Pile or Reborns) doesn’t want to see me succeed and/or thinks they can get ahead by bringing us down.
Thanks for your patience during this very upsetting time.
Dave
He added this additional info:
What is a DDoS Attack?
A distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attack is a malicious attempt to disrupt normal traffic of a targeted server, service or network by overwhelming the target or its surrounding infrastructure with a flood of Internet traffic. DDoS attacks achieve effectiveness by utilizing multiple compromised computer systems as sources of attack traffic. Exploited machines can include computers and other networked resources such as IoT devices. From a high level, a DDoS attack is like a traffic jam clogging up with highway, preventing regular traffic from arriving at its desired destination.
How does a DDoS attack work?
A DDoS attack requires an attacker to gain control of a network of online machines in order to carry out an attack. Computers and other machines (such as IoT devices) are infected with malware, turning each one into a bot (or zombie). The attacker then has remote control over the group of bots, which is called a botnet.
Once a botnet has been established, the attacker is able to direct the machines by sending updated instructions to each bot via a method of remote control. When the IP address of a victim is targeted by the botnet, each bot will respond by sending requests to the target, potentially causing the targeted server or network to overflow capacity, resulting in a denial-of-service to normal traffic. Because each bot is a legitimate Internet device, separating the attack traffic from normal traffic can be difficult.
Dave said ALL LOST DAYS WILL BE CREDITED.
He thanks us all, for our understanding.

Thanks for that , Shannon!
Poor Dave - I know it’s not the first time he’s had to deal with this sort of thing :(
