Perfect storm

Folks, thanks for sticking with us while we figure out how to keep the sites up. In addition to the media exposure, we spent several hours today doing 40+ requests per second thanks to some over eager Chinese robots. We have new hardware getting set up and are researching upgrading the firewall as well. We’ll try and keep you all doing your 43 Things, Places and People as best we can.
