For the past two weeks I’ve been frustratingly helpless as our website sat broken. A extremely high traffic spike shut down the site on the very day I left town for a week of speaking in Wisconsin. Wireless access was spotty and time was limited, so I didn’t have any opportunity to look into the problem until today.
We’re not certain if the spike was actual traffic (possible) or a malicious attack (also possible), but we’ve set some things in place to prevent this from happening again.
Nothing was lost, so everything should be back to normal here.
Thanks for all of the e-mails asking what was going on!
