Our data center (SoftLayer) is experiencing a DDoS attack of their DNS server cluster. As we host our DNS with them, some people have had issues accessing this site. We've added some additional third party name servers, and any issues should soon be resolved as they propagate to a DNS server near you. :)

I had a few errors the other night with OpenDNS reporting that Geeks to Go was not accessible. That must have been this problem.

I sure love OpenDNS. :)

OpenDNS users should consider enabling SmartCache. :)
