Random Pagan Verse:
In the Old Days, when there were many Witches, we were free and worshipped freely in the greatest temples;
but in these times, we must celebrate our sacred mysteries in secret. Therefore, none but the Witches are to see our mysteries;
no coven shall know the location of any other coven or who its members are, except the High Priest, the High Priestess and the Messenger;
and that there shall be no communication among the covens, except by the Messenger of the Gods or the Summoner. Only if it is safe may the
covens meet in some safe place for the Great Festivals; and while there, none shall give their true names or any information about their
coven or its members. This law is made for this reason:
No-one can tell our enemies what they do not themselves know.

Hackers Reportedly took BBC websites offline

BBC?s websites were unavailable early Thursday morning after they became victim of a cyberattack which knocked them offline.

The BBC reported that when visitors went to any of their sites they were met with an error message.



Initially the news organization called the problem a ?technical issue,? later though an account managed by the media corporation said that the problem was the result of a ?distributed denial of service? attack.

for the day was #BBC as people complained about the outage.

Those types of DDOS attacks swamp a website with so much more traffic than it is used that it actually disrupts the normal service and knocks it offline.

One of the most popular hashtags on social media sites for the day was #BBC as people complained about the outage.

By the afternoon, the company tweeted out a statement apologizing for the interruption and said that its sites were operating normally again.

CNN noted that BBC is one of the most frequently visited sites on the Internet and its T.V. stations have always been extremely popular in the U.K.
