Crawl 17 Complete, but Server in Recovery


Our server has been up and down and all over the place, and we apologize to any users who had difficulty accessing our website. We took immediate action and have remedied the problem (to the best of our knowledge) and don’t foresee any further problems with a script that got out of control on our box.

Initially, we thought this was due to DDOS (Distributed Denial of Service Attack), so we purchased a new server to carry the database/MySQL load. This server is now up and feeding this and the sites.

Good news: looks like we’re back in business and things should even out over the coming days. Bad news: well, we may have purchased a database server we didn’t really need! 🙂 Oh well, growing pains!
