Thank you for highlighting a point that I missed. DShield has been
serving the community well for years. I think a burp due to some growing
pains can be forgiven. ;-)

Paul Marsh also made a similar comment, that if help is needed let's
just chip in. I personally would be more than happy to contribute to
such an effort.

Johannes: What ever you need, just let us know (knowing of course that
some things are just easier to do yourself as they take longer to get
someone up to speed).
