Kaminsky family is in "all hands on board" crisis mode this morning and we need your help! Greg's website was hacked last night and is out of commission. The hosting company said that denial of service messages came from thousands of IP addresses that kept changing and were targeting specifically Greg's website. Sounds like a major conspiracy theory stuff from a bad movie and it would be amusing if we didn't rely on Greg's site to generate half of our monthly budget! As of now, the hosting company has dropped Greg's website and he needs to find a new hosting company that specializes in handling malicious attacks. We welcome any suggestions you might have there. 
For now, we need to deal with the reality of the site being gone. While Greg is going to rebuild it, that will take time and money. Better security costs more! And some of Greg's subscribers are jumping ship which is totally understandable. After all, would you be paying a monthly fee if you could not even get to the website? 
Who knew that posting interviews with esoteric authors is such a dangerous business?! I certainly didn't think so! As I listen to the podcasts while Greg edits them, inevitably the message is about the human race awakening, spirituality playing a bigger role in our lives, and different ways of following a spiritual path. 
I would like to ask for your help in covering the website rebuilding costs for Greg. Better security means higher monthly costs and apparently each time there is an attack like this there is a one-time fee to deal with it. There is also a lost time and subscriber cost that makes me nervous. Did I mention this is how we pay our bills? Every little bit you can give will help us get over this unfortunate event, help Greg bring his site back, and put food on the table. Food is good! 
Thank you for your help!

I don't see an update from Greg here, so wanted to let everyone know that Greg has signed up with a new hosting company. Thanks to your support, he was able to pay for a year, which gave him a significant discount on the total price. He is now in the process of transferring the domain and getting Wordpress setup. Thank you all!

This has been an exercise of being way out of our comfort zones for both Greg and I, though for different reasons. The tremendous gratitude has forced Greg to step out of his usual introverted ways and interact with people he doesn't know "in real life". And I've been forced to acknowledge that my own relationship with abundance and money is not as warm and fluffy as I have believed. All of this has been a lesson and a blessing. Who knew that Greg's site getting hacked would lead to the support and sense of community that is absolutely priceless? I am grateful to that hacker that caused all this and what an unexpected turn of events this has been. Thank you all!

Thank you everyone so much! This has been an overwhelming day. I didn't expect such a tremendous response. I was just hoping to cheer Greg up a bit after a sleepless night. Thank you!

I'm absolutely floored by the tremendous generosity of all who've donated and all who've spread the word in response to our call for aid. Thank you!!! It appears as though there's going to be plenty of Tarot readings and more. I'll be in touch individually to schedule those. Thanks again! My wife and I are touched by your kindness :)
