This newsletter has been moved to a temporary host

As a temporary measure, I have moved the Standard Edition newsletter’s web site to a temporary host on wordpress.com.

The hosting company where the Standard Edition newsletter runs has been receiving intermittent DDOS attacks for several days. The blog.eogn.com pages have been up and down repeatedly for more than 36 hours. The other pages on eogn.com remained in operation but most site visitors had no way of learning that.

The Plus Edition is still working at http://eogn.com/wp.

The new website looks very different from the newsletter you are used to reading and I am sure there are hundreds of broken links. All recent newsletter article are being posted at the new, temporary web site. However, that will require a few hours.


I plan to re-enable the normal eogn.com web site once the DDOS attacks are resolved.

I am monitoring the problem closely although there is nothing I can do remotely. The techs at the hosting service have been working 16 to 18 hour days to get the problem resolved. You can read their report at http://everything.typepad.com/blog/2014/04/response-to-downtime.html.

I apologize for the inconvenience.

Hi, Dick –
Thanks so much for all you’re doing to keep us in the loop for the newsletter and your effort to resolve your hosting issue. I’m sure this is very frustrating and I appreciate your effort.

I am thinking of leaving the free Standard Edition newsletter where it is now. There is a mix of advantages and disadvantages to doing so. Any suggestions?

    For me the new incarnation of the newsletter is way better than before. It loads very quickly, within a second. For years on several very different computers the old version was very slow to load fully, waiting for ages, maybe a minute or two, loading links to third parties that were notified in the lower left corner of Chrome. Please do not re-enable those links.
