We're having a few technical glitches with the MetaFilter servers so you might experience a few problems.

Yesterday our ISP detected a DDoS attack
aimed at MetaFilter. They immediately started filtering traffic that flows to our system. There are a few side-effects of this filtering that you might be experiencing: intermittent connection timeouts, odd File Not Found (404) errors, and problems uploading files.
Our ISP automatically puts our system into this mode for 24 hours. So it's possible this will clear up later today. It's also possible that we'll need to run like this for a while. Thanks for your patience while we weather this.
