Finally back up and running...

     Well... for the most part anyway. Powweb appears to give incredibly strict access to their log files so that the whole thing has gone from just being a few simple questions to a seven day ordeal that has escalated to the server administrators. I have no idea why the questions "Where did v6.txt actually run from?" and "what script actually downloaded and/or ran it?" seem to be proving damn near impossible questions to answer. From the experience I had running a server out of my basement for nearly six months before I couldn't handle the bandwidth issues, this should be stuff that's right out in the front of most log files. Especially if it was such a problem that it warranted shutting off my service. It seems like they might have even had stack traces or something similar that would have lots of information about the issue. But no, apparently no one ever needs to know these things. Their servers run flawlessly all the time, with no concerns for attacks. And when these problems come around they run around like chickens with their heads cut off.
     To be honest the service has been completely fantastic for me except for the last two weeks. I managed to move over to the new server without too much fuss, their scripts for transfering me were less then apt to deal with my hand scripted items, but I managed to smooth out most of the issues and I'm back up and running... albeit still under attack to some degree.
