Something like that. Lately the only real problems seem to come from spambots trying to leave comments on our blogs. They have been knocking the server offline every day for at least a week. We have been working with our hosting provider to figure out a way to disrupt the spambots' activity.

For the time being we have scheduled occasional "downtime" for the server, where you'll encounter connection errors for a few seconds. This is really just a temporary measure that we hope will keep the server running while we work out some better method of dealing with the problem.
