Anyone trying to access this blog in the past three days would have received a 404 message (I know, a 404 page was probably a modest improvement over what’s going on over here lately anyway). The good folks over at DreamHost disabled this blog because it was the source of high load on one of their servers; turns out a DDoS attack was hitting assorted pages in the archives.
Anyway, it’s back, and I’ve turned on more aggressive page caching and have started autobanning spam IPs. I’d like to say this shows that I’m moving up in the Internet world (the bots love me enough to start fighting over my blog!), but no, it doesn’t.
Coming “soon”: by popular demand, beer reviews! Sure I’ve done this elsewhere, but my reviews there don’t auto-import into Facebook, either.
