We are currently down due to a harsh DoS attack,
I'll be enabling protections shortly so should
be back online at the main link, however it is
likely to be slow.

I have enabled our persistent mirror link temporarily.
I will keep this running for at least the next
24 hours, main link should be back online within
the next 3-4 hours.

Don’t believe comments above me who are spreading FUD about Dread. Simply butthurt that they can’t shipost on Dread or LE trying to sow fear. It’s all a game of coconut shells regardless, just play everything safe.
