If you tried to get to the site in the morning through mid-afternoon, you probably had a very rough time of it. NC was under a DDoS attack. It took us a bit longer to restore normal service than it should have, not due to any sophistication of the attack, but that it took both our webhost and our WordPress person to sort out the response, and the WordPress person was initially tied up (webhosts are on quick trigger responses, software support people generally not, so this is no fault of our WordPress person, merely bad luck with timing).
So apologies for the inconvenience. I hope you will read yesterday’s fare as well as today’s offerings.
