I have been laying low for several days here. The site began suffering a distributed bot network attack in the middle of the week.
My site hosting service, Hostgator, immediately undertook protective measures to block the attack, but the extent of those protections made it even difficult for me to do much in the backend of the site: thus no posts.
The attack is now over and the Borg and its bots have moved on to another target.
Thanks for your patience and the regular irregular posts will now resume!
