Over the weekend we made a few updates, restarted a server or two and banged on a few other bits and pieces around here. Those changes, combined with the passing of the initial tsunami of traffic, have left the site running much better.
From what we can tell, things should be pretty much back to normal. If you are still having problems, please let us know with a comment here or by sending and email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We’re still working to improve the speed of the site and we will continue to upgrade our systems to try to avoid something like this happening again.
We’d like to apologize again for the issues we ran into last week and thank you for your patience as we worked through them.
