Because the site is hosted in New Orleans, it went down several days after Hurricane Katrina devastated that city. The company had managed to keep it up for a few days, but it eventually came down. Backup hosting was arranged with Dreamhost for a temporary frontpage. According to Lowtax, the site "will be back again within this week". The webmasters are trying to move its servers to a permanent hosting facility in Kansas City, Missouri. The site is "semi-functional" and Lowtax was offering to give some merchandise to anyone who gives more than 10 USD to the Red Cross Hurricane Relief PayPal link on the website. Unfortunately, after raising 20,000 USD in less than a day, Paypal froze the account because they had received "more than one report of suspicious behavior" from Lowtax's "buyers". Lowtax has expressed fury that PayPal has now taken away all of the money, confusion at who his "buyers" were, and frustration at the fact that PayPal has made it impossible for him to fix the problem. At last update, Lowtax had requested that PayPal refund all the money raised through the site, asking instead that people donate to the Red Cross directly.
