The site is slow to inaccessible right now (1:21 PM EST) -- ftp and load averages are at "critical" on the server. I'll update when it's back to normal.
OK, immediate update: HTTP and MYSQL are also down.
3rd update: well, this is fast -- now just ftp is at critical status.
Final update, 1:27 pm EST: okay, everything back to normal!

There's been a DoS attack on one of Hostmatters servers which shut down several major blogs (like Instapundit) earlier today. I thought Spleenville and Timblair.net escaped the effects, but apparently not. I can't bring the main hosting site up either -- the Emergency Forums are open though. It may be that sites are being rerouted and that's why my site and the other blogs here are down.
