This morning, my host was hit by a DDoS attack which knocked hundreds of sites off line including mine. Once that issue was resolved I found that my site couldn't connect to the database due to the database being corrupted.
After many database backups and MySQL restarts, the host was finally able to get us back online around 8 PM tonight.
If you are a member of our small community, your passwords should still work. The only residual effect is the comments are lost for this morning and yesterday. Thanks for your patience!
