Some of you may be wondering what happened to Given To Wail. Some of you might be wondering which rumor to believe... did they pay their bill? Did they sell the site? Were they finally shut down? Did they just give up on it?
The answer to all of those questions is no. The server we are on was attacked and everything was lost last week. Fortunately, I've kept backups of all the pages, articles and tabs on the site. While that may seem like some bit of relief, trust me, it's not. Unfortunately, our database was lost and thus all of our forum information and some site info. Rebuilding will take some time as I plan on using this opportunity to move Given To Wail towards are more community based project. We're not going anywhere.
In fact, your help could probably be of service. The basic plan right now is the wiki route. Once things start getting set up and information reloaded, if you feel you can help out with content or graphics or info or anything, please feel free to contact me.
Don't worry, the first thing that will be brought back will be the tabs. Or the forum. Whichever comes easier. It'll just take some time so those of us working on it appreciate your patience. One last thing (a couple really) just to clear up some issues, no one at this site will get you in touch with Mike. Ever. No one at this site ever took donated money for Katrina victims and spent it.
So, thanks for your understanding and we'll be back soon.

Whats that all about? did people email rick all the time asking him to put them in touch with mike? why would they think he could do that? mike doesnt haev anything to do with the site, unless ive missed something. just annoying fans or what?
I hadn't noticed, but we achieced our goal!
I think it just says that two sites happen to be down at the same time.
The forums are back online: http://www.giventowail.com/forum/
Awesome rick! Holy cow, do you have a camera watching me? Thanks for the answer, so quickly. Sucks that there's assholes out there who feel a need to mess with other's hard work. Trying not to come off as impatient, you rockzorz my sockzorz and we miss your site bad!!!
Keep up the good work.
I forgot my username and pw tho, its been "auto" for so long now. :(
There seems to be a registration problem right now so I'm looking into it. Hopefully I'll be able to fix it within the next few days. But until then, sorry for the delay.
Not really sure. Rick has probably contacted Mike a few times about content or to ask "is it OK for this to be the official Mike McCready page" but not to the extent of asking him to validate the tabs. But otherwise yeah, just annoying fans I guess.
