July 20, 2014 – 1:56 pm by Kelsey

For the past couple of hours we’ve been having issues with our DNS servers.  We just identified the source of the problem and should have it completely resolved in a few minutes.  As it turns out, this was a variance on the attacks that have caused us trouble in the past and was escaping the notice of our automated systems.  We’re sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused!
