Unplanned downtime

If you sat and glared at a blank page during the 90 minutes or so this site was down this afternoon (roughly 1:55 to 3:25 Central), well, for once it wasn't my fault. The server farm in L.A. went into full meltdown, and they're checking the logs to see if they can pick up a whiff of a Distributed Denial of Service attack.

Not that anyone would attack me, necessarily, but it doesn't take that much to bring down my site and the 50,000 others they host.
