Intermittent hosting issues

My apologies if you’ve tried accessing the site and seen error messages, timeouts, slow responses, or other similar issues over the last week or so.
My hosting provider has a rather clever setup that allows for extremely high performance while minimizing resource use. This has generally worked well, but they recently had some issues with their routing hardware that implements this cleverness as well as some moderate attacks against customers.
Although things are stable for now, they’re looking at replacing nearly-overloaded components with higher-capacity models, implementing better monitoring and responses so they can alleviate attacks and detect problems sooner, and otherwise be able to improve things going forward. There may be some instability in the immediate future, but things should improve.
Sorry about the trouble.
