JNC Site Running on All Cylinders Again, Hopefully

So as you probably have noticed, the JNC site experienced some technical difficulties this week. Our webhosting service claims it was a software issue with the blog. We think it was a spam attack, as virtually nothing of importance changed between our normal operation and the sudden spike in server CPU usage that caused the freakout. In any case, we’re re-opening the blog and letting the hounds loose with fingers crossed.

But since we’re at the mercy of the Webhosting Gods, we’ve taken some of the precautions they’ve recommended. You’ll notice that you need to enter a captcha confirmation before commenting. This should be a one-time thing unless you switch computers or browsers. Let us know if this isn’t working for you, or if you see any other odd behavior/broken links/UFOs. Sorry for the inconvenience!

    Great to have you back again! I was already having a cold turkey! :(

    For bosozokustyle I stopped using captchas or math questions, a simple approval queue works much better since it will never hit the comments this way and the automated spammers will keep away. :)
    Downside is that I have to approve every comment. :(
    For my “personal” blog I use trick questions (things like “name of the country of the rising sun”, etc.) which work just as effective as the approval queue. ;)

      Bert – it depends on who does the licking.

      cesariojpn – we don’t pick the captcha words, but hope you enjoyed it! It wasn’t “lick” was it?

    Welcome back guys, I was gettin’ dizzie and almost fainted.

  17. Komeuppance said:

    GoDaddy.com has been rock solid for years. “99.9% Network Uptime Commitment” I’ve never, ever seen them go down on the sites I manage… but that’s just me. I’m just happy you guys are back up and running, though not a fan of the captcha.
