We may be experiencing a DOS attack or two. We’re certainly experiencing technical difficulties yesterday and today that have at times taken the site down and even when it was up have sometimes made it virtually impossible for me to post.
Hosting Matters, however, denies that any DOS attack has occurred or is occurring, although a commenter did post several hundred comments here in the space of a few minutes last night, obviously intending to take down the site.
We will be dealing with this problem as soon as possible. Meanwhile, thanks for your patience. I apologize for the inconvenience.
