Post subject:  Why the site appeared down for part of yesterday

The network infrastructure in the facility in which the server that hosts this forum lives was under a heavy DOS attack with varying attack vectors for a long time. It's so serious that they had this to say:

Because the attackers were changing their methods and watching how their attacks were responded to, we are not at liberty to elaborate on the nature of the security precautions taken.

I guess a few engineers over there didn't get much sleep last night! :-/

Sorry for any inconvenience caused, there was little that could be done about it, though, our server was up the entire time and has been up for the last 50 days solid.
