Apologies to all of you who were a bit frustrated when trying to access this site over the last few days. My hosting provider was hit with a DDOS (Distributed Denial of Service) attack which made for very intermittent service–particularly Tuesday and Wednesday. I understand that new measures have now been taken which should prevent a similar attack from disrupting things in the future.
While I am quite certain that this site itself was not the target of the DDOS, I was told that some of the specific malicious systems had been traced to Brazil, China and Russia.
Then, if that wasn’t enough, I had to monkey around the with the caching to the end that the site didn’t work properly until just a little bit ago.
All should now be well.
