SurvivalBlog

You've probably noticed that SurvialBlog has been unavailable for a couple of days.  I've been able to get in touch with the proprietor, James Wesley Rawles, and he sent me the following:

Please help spread the word to mitigate the latest ping flood attack on SurvivalBlog's main server. Folks can use this temporary site:  http://64.92.111.122. (You'll note that we've temporarily omitted all graphics, to minimize the bandwidth needed. Going "thin" makes ping flood attacks less successful.)

Apparently, someone out there on the Intertubz has gotten their panties in a wad over something he's said or not said and is orchestrating an attack on the site.  For the time being, use the link above to get to a stripped-down SurvivalBlog.

Edit, 7/8/2013 1900:  It seems that SurvivalBlog is back up at it's normal address.
