What’s been going on

Today is the first day I’ve been able to access the site since Friday morning. One of the service people at WordPress explained the reason in an e-mail Friday night.
“As a result of a large denial of service attack directed at WordPress.com servers on Thursday, our upstream internet providers have implemented some filters to prevent malicious traffic from reaching our network. While we tried to make these blocks as specific as possible, it appears that your IP is one of the ones being blocked at the moment.”
Shikata ga nai, it can’t be helped, as the Japanese say. It’s back to business, and thanks for your patience.
