Note on site performance

Since very early this morning, our web host has been battling a denial-of-service (DoS) attack of “extreme size.”

Our site is not a target of this DoS. It seems to have been targeted at two unrelated client sites that cover the same topic (nothing to do with Apple).

There is no problem with our dedicated server performance (for once: we do need and are working on more resources as evidenced recently). wink We’re just caught up in the issue along with every other site sharing the same web host.

Our web host has called in extra assistance to pour through information gathered and to keep ahead of any recurrence of the DoS today. Performance should improve sporadically throughout the day.

Please keep in mind that in order to post new articles, we need access to the server, too. At times, it’s almost as frustrating as Windows. We’re doing our best to try to get through to the server to post new articles.

Thank you for your patience.

  1. Please keep in mind that in order to post new articles, we need access to the server, too. At times, it’s almost as frustrating as Windows. We’re doing our best to try to get through to the server to post new articles.

    It’s of course all Microsoft’s fault for their lousy software that allows the DoS by WinBotnets.

    Since the host MDN uses is on Linux, makes me think the bad guys don’t like Linux.

    Just speculating….
