Blogs temporarily down for repair

The Quoderat and Land and Hold Short blogs are temporarily down for repair. Please accept my apologies for any inconvenience.

Someone was trying to attack my database through WordPress, resulting in loss of service for several web sites as my server slowed down with load factors sometimes over 100.

The blogs should be back online within a few days (or weeks), once I've sorted out the problem, cleaned the database tables, and applied security upgrades.

In the meantime, if you're an aviation fan, why not pop by OurAirports?
