Typepad

You may have noticed that it's been hard to connect to our blog for a couple of days now.  Unfortunately Typepad was undergoing a DDos attack by hackers, so our connection remained spotty for a while.  

So what's a DDos attack?  Here's a quote from TechCrunch.com that explains it well-

"Though Typepad has not yet publicly shared much information about its attackers, the typical scenario involves an attacker knocking the victim’s site offline using a flood of traffic, then refusing to stop the barrage until the victim company pays a small amount of “ransom.” The initial amount is usually fairly insignificant, but once the victim agrees, it tends to go up, as they’ve now confirmed themselves as an easy mark."

It appears fixed (for now), but hopefully things will be back up and running soon.  We apologize to everyone for any inconvenience this has caused!
