My webhost has been in the midst of a DDOS attack over the past couple of days. As said on their status blog, it seems that somebody doesn’t love independence, and I have to giggle and agree. Thanks to the wonder of shared hosting, this means that when the attackers tried to attack the site in question, many of the sites under the same IP address also get attacked. Early on the fourth and late this evening, that included this site and Wikiwrimo. At least I managed to make some progress on Wikiwrimo while it was up.
Meanwhile, the webhost knows what site is affected, and they’re working to solve the problem, but the attackers appear to be very vigilant, so if either site goes down over the next couple of days, don’t be surprised. I’m just an innocent bystander as far as I know.
