9/2/12 Last week the CellStream Joomla site was hacked.  It was a horrendous experience, causing us many hours of work and the upgrade of our site to the Latest Joomla version. For about 24 hours we were even blacklisted on Google.  The hack was relatively benign (a redirect) but frustrating nonetheless.  We continue to work on the recovery and if there are broken links and so forth, please have patience with us.  Feel free to report anything you see that does not appear to be correct and we will work on it as swiftly as possible.  Thanks for everyone's patience.
