Hello,
it's one of those days. Some nice Algerian hackers decide to make your life easier in the name of Allah (seriously) and hack the website.
I took it temporarily down as the way they get in is already known, now we need to figure out a solution.
The shop went down for safety reasons as well, as said before though, all placed orders are on their way.
Thanks,
Morf

Thanks for the info Morf. They can go suck it as far as I am concerned, why don't they go hit GW or somebody big like WotC.

Good on you for resolving the problem so quickly. Here's hoping tomorrow is a better day.

Cheers,

Chris

Wow your having some tough luck! What's up with this?!?!?

Look at it this way. The terrorist are scared of our power. They recognize that a community, an International Community of gamers united could be the greatest threat to their oppresive regime! WE ARE SUPREME!!!


(ya ok I'm pulling it outta my butt but still) :P

My old 'favourites' link sent me to some kind of not found page. But a new online search shows the site up, but the store still off-line.

I mailed Maciej,, but no response yet. I hope that the problem can be resolved soon - it is the kind of headache that seems very unfair to a small busioness like Pulp Monsters.

Has anyone seen the WWW announced on places like TMP, TTGnews, etc? Just curious.

Sadly, the page is still mostly black on Chrome, Windows 7 64bit.

Hello,
yes, the site is up, we've traced it down.
The attacks were not targeted, rather random online violence from friends in Turkey and Algeria (my new holiday destinations!).
I am not bringing in the webstore yet, mostly out of the concern for your money's safety. But here is the good news: I will create an out of store ordering method for the time it takes to resolve the problem.

It will be up tomorrow.

As for the website and Chrome problem, this just hastens the site re-vamp I planned because of the book's relaunch. There is a couple of functionalities I plan to add, including a store locator, onsite distribution info, updated (and easier to update) H&V section and Pulp Monsters . com will become more of a gateway to not just Pulp City.
:twisted: Teaser. Well, you need to get the book in order to find out more!
