    I've had trouble connecting to the site today, but I also had trouble with Twitter earlier, so I figured maybe it was more attacks.

    We don't seem to be affected yet but there are major DDOS attacks against the Internet core in the United States right now, particularly Los Angeles and several targets in New England. Ireland is being hit pretty hard too, for some reason, and the attacks against Ireland are coming from the United States. I had noticed an hour or so ago that I couldn't connect to Youtube and there are reports that other major sites have been inaccessible periodically, which is what a DDOS attack would do. In the event that you do have trouble connecting to the forum (or elsewhere) at some point, that would be the reason.
