As reported in the original post there was an unplanned site outage for Stonehenge starting around 10:30am ET due to a DDoS attack on our hosting provider.
We’re pleased to announce the issue appears to have been resolved as of 3:30pm ET or so, and we’ve confirmed Stonehenge is accessible.
We apologize for any inconvenience, and if Stonehenge is part of your Autumnal equinox plans, you still have time.
We’ve recently learned our hosting company which we use for Stonehenge is experiencing an outage, meaning users will not be able to reach the site.
The silver lining here is that this is precisely why we have our blog with a separate hosting company.
We will advise you via this blog and our Twitter (@jabbernews) when service is restored.
We apologize for the inconvenience.
UPDATE, 2:00pm ET: Our hosting company has confirmed they are experiencing a large DDoS attack. It has not been resolved yet.
UPDATE, 5:00pm ET: Our hosting company confirmed that they had resolved the problem and servers were coming back online. We’ve confirmed Stonehenge is back (though it might be responding a bit slower than usual).
