Thanks to everyone who has emailed about the intermittently slow load times of the last couple of days. The CEO of our hosting service, Total Choice Hosting, posted yesterday that the company's servers are "currently experiencing a multi-gigabyte Denial of Service attack against our infrastructure." They think they have it under control now, but it could take a little while for things at LAO to get back to normal. We'll see how it is here in the morning. Thanks for your patience.
