Thanks for the words of support.

Today (March 6, 2017) was definitely a weird day. We were almost completely overwhelmed for almost 3 hours, from about 11:20 to 2:20 US East Coast time (UTC-5:00), and degraded for a couple of hours after that. I haven't had a chance to fully analyze the access logs yet, but it looks like we got hit almost simultaneously by 4 different bots of some sort. Even the trick of doing a Deny in .htaccess was not immediately successful at restoring normal load. That's a quirk that presents another mystery.

Things have been back to normal now for about 6 hours. I have hopes that they'll stay that way, but only time will tell.
