    Rough Couple Days!

    OK some explaining and a heads up.

    Yesterday we were down most of the day due to our host having an update go horribly wrong and affect a large number of their servers.
    This morning we were down for a couple hours due to our host having a major network outage due to a DDOS (distributed denial of service) attack.
    In both cases there wasn't anything we could do except wait for them to resolve the problems.

    Heads up:
    They also have scheduled a maintenance period tonight at 11PM EST to beef up their defenses against DDOS attacks. It's not clear how long it will take or whether it will cause another outage, but don't be surprised or panic if it does.

    Also:
    For anyone who doesn't know, there's a "Beginner Bikers" group on Facebook. http://www.facebook.com/#!/groups/92102946216/
    If we're down and know anything about what is happening, one of us will usually post something in there.


    My apologies for the recent frustration.

    Tom

    No big deal.

    Stuff happens.

    Did one of the tubes get plugged up?

    It was a moth in one of the relays.

    Thanks.
    I had a week or two of minor inconveniences really.

    Appreciate the sentiment though.
