Under attack


By Tim Redmond

Well, my friends, once again it's election day, and once again, our site is under attack. It looks like a serious, well-orchestrated effort aimed at shutting us down just when readers look to us the most for ballot recommendations.

The attack started around 10 last night, and continues to this minute. Fortunately, we were well prepared this time, and with our IT director, Joe Pennant, our web designer, John Adams at eline.com, and our host, Ronnie Enriquez at Infraswitch, all doing heroic work, we're still up and running.

We have backup plans, so we should be available all day no matter what. But if the site goes down briefly, don't panic -- just check back a few minutes later.
