Severe Server Outage
DQS offline for a month
My server had a total hardware meltdown - the site was down for about a month. I'm still putting the pieces together. Quotes are not yet being mailed out daily and a few things may still be broken.
Thanks for everybody's patience. Service will resume soon.

Some service interruptions
The server for DQS has moved, and with it I myself. The apartment relocation was accompanied by some scrambling to maintain internet connectivity. Meanwhile, at times quotation lovers were left stranded. I apologize.
