Technical Difficulties

I think Mee.nu is under DDOS attack. 

Verizon, my service provider, has been intermittently being rather diffident in quality, speed and bandwidth for a few days. Local storms may be to blame. 

On a completely different note, it is good to learn where great minds got their inspiration.

1 It was indeed some sort of attack.  Not the usual sort of amplification attack that uses up 4000% of your bandwidth, but we were getting flooded with requests for invalid URLs from datacenters all over the world.  Had to block thousands of IP addresses to get it to stop.

2 So my week thus far has been:

Main server comes back on line after two weeks of downtime. Run backups and do software updates. All ready to switch back to main server! Main server goes down again.
Place order for new server.
New server arrives! Backup server gets overrun with ants. Main server comes back again. Fend off ants with one hand while moving sites to main server with the other. Profit?

4 "My own comment form eats my line breaks."

It's been doing that for a long time.  It seems to eat one break--if you put in one more than you want, it works.
