We are sorry to announce that the uiGarden webzine site has been the victim
of a malicious hacker/ or hackers and have to be suspended. We are currently
redeveloping the whole site so the site is temporarily closed.

While the site is under reconstruction previous articles as zip files to be
downloaded from our temporary index page: http://www.uigarden.net. -

Our forums are working properly. You can still access our
<http://bahamas.eshockhost.com/%7Euigarden/forums-e/> English forum and
<http://bahamas.eshockhost.com/%7Euigarden/forums-c/> Chinese forums.

We can only offer our apologies for any inconvenience caused by this and put
the blame on the hacker/hackers. We will be seeking legal redress and try
our utmost best to expose the attacker. We urge our friends and colleagues
to help us make a concerted effort to catch the culprit. It is not a light
charge and hacking is an criminal offence if prosecuted and found guilty in
some countries.

We appreciate very much your patience and sincerely hope you do come back
again after a few weeks.
-----------------

I know that some people in the list go to the site very often and this is
the only way that I can tell them what happened when they found their
bookmarks didn't work.

Hope you agree! Thank you!

Christina

I am so sorry to hear of the evil destruction of your site. I trust you will
come out of this with an even better site than before. It's unfortunate that
we have created a collective mindset that destroying the achievements of
others is a legitimate way to compete.
