About that Annoying Delay…

We apologize for that irritating five-second delay it takes to open up the Bacon’s Rebellion blog. We experienced some blackouts yesterday, which our Internet Service Provider (ISP) diagnosed as a possible Denial of Service attack. Apparently, the attack was directed at Bacon’s Rebellion and not other websites on the same server. We will remove this safeguard once we are confident the attack (or whatever problem it is) is over.

Several years ago, Bacon’s Rebellion experienced a devastating Denial of Service attack that knocked us out for several days. One of the things we have done with readers’ donations is subscribe to a more secure and more responsive (and more expensive) ISP. So, thanks to your generosity, Bacon’s Rebellion is still rebelling!

    Wow! There has been a cyber attack on Bacon’s Rebellion! We must be doing something right and getting under someone’s skin.

    It probably came from the editorial board of the Post for publishing things they don’t want published.
