Why the site has been flakey lately ...


Recommended Posts


It seems that the server on which this community runs has been under attack lately in distributed denial of service fashion. The attacks have been intermittent but effective and hard to compensate for. The result has been random times where the site is simply not available to people - there are so many spurious page requests that the legitimate ones are crowded out. Of course, we are working hard to minimize the impact of these attacks, but this sort of attack is really hard to defend against. Please just keep this in mind if you suddenly find that the community is down. It's not a personal attack on you and we have not decided to block you from entering here - it's just a bunch of antisocial hackers with bot-nets doing what they do and making life more difficult for the rest of us.
