Network Outage!

Network Outage! TidBITS Technical Editor Geoff Duncan has discovered a reliable method to block all spam: have your network service provider suddenly go dark. TidBITS services hosted at digital.forest are accessible, but everything at db.tidbits.com (including our article database, TidBITS Talk archive, and polls) will be offline until DNS updates propagate (hopefully by the time you read this). Even then, performance to db.tidbits.com services will be less than ideal, since my 56 Kbps frame relay Internet connection isn’t the speediest and is already heavily used to distribute TidBITS Talk and most of our translations of TidBITS. We’re working hard to avoid downtime, minimize performance degradation, and restore Geoff’s connectivity, so please try to limit mail to essential issues. [ACE]
