For the past several days, this blog has been a target of a DDOS attack (Distributed Denial-of-Service) which put the site to a crawl.
According to our data center, the DDOS attack was targeted to this domain alone (not the main server IP) so this is obviously a targeted attack at us. We don’t have any idea to the attacker but we have tried a lot of ways to mitigate this.
As a result, you may have experienced the site to load very slowly or completely unviewable.
To those who still cannot access the blog at the moment, I suggest subscribing to the RSS Email blast here (it’s hosted separately by Feedburner and is not affected by the attack).
