PP Blog Experienced Outage

recommendedreading1The PP Blog experienced a partial service outage that lasted through all or parts of three days. The event appears to have begun sometime after 3:13 a.m. EDT Saturday, although a couple of readers have said they noticed problems earlier.

An engineer said this evening that Saturday’s event does not appear to have had a malicious cause. The PP Blog experienced DDoS attacks in 2010 and other malicious events in 2011.

Saturday’s event affected publishing. It also affected readers’ ability to call up certain pages, mostly in archives.

I am grateful for the notes I received, especially from those folks who were here in 2010 and 2011 and remembered the maliciousness directed at the Blog.

Thank you, Readers.

    Let’s hope you don’t face too many, Oz. To me, it feels as though the oxygen is sucked out of the room.

    Oz: Welcome back!

    Thanks, Oz.

  6. I could not access the site at all as it kept telling me that it was a database error and several times it told me that I was forbidden to access the page. Glad to see that you are back up and running.
