WordPress DDoSed

WordPress, my blogging platform of choice fell victim to a massive DDoS attack today. Service was interrupted in a big way, a fact supported by a massive drop in recorded traffic to this site today.

WordPress has recovered from the attack and is taking steps to prevent further failures.
