Hosting problems off and on

Unread post by Mike Gebert » Tue Aug 13, 2013 12:34 pm

Our hosting company says there seems to be some kind of denial of service attack going on, which could be aimed at us or someone else they host, or totally random. But we may be off and on for a while till they figure it out. Sorry!

The NitrateVille facebook page is your best bet for info when we're down.

Yes, we're back, at least for now. Again, watch Facebook for updates if something happens.

Glad your back! My computer gave me the message that I was "forbidden" to view this website! I went through withdrawl yesterday! Hope you guys can stay on.

Yeah, I saw two different notices -- the first said "Your account has been suspended" (which recently happened to another message board I post on), and then this morning came the more mundane "The site is temporarily unavailable. Please try again later." I've kept the Facebook page right next to the Nitrateville window, refreshing it every now and then to see what was happening. Thanks for keeping us informed, Mike!

I've just seen a long gray panel pop up at the right of the screen. In fact, it's popped up twice in the last five minutes, then disappeared. Is this related to the problems we were having earlier?
