Technical Difficulties Today (Updated)

After the deluge of traffic from a Drudge Report link, the comments at CQ appear to be off line. That usually indicates some problem with the Movable Type activity log and a runaway process at Hosting Matters, the excellent service that hosts CQ and many other fine blogs. It does not seem to be a Typekey issue, as a couple of readers asked by e-mail.

We will work diligently to restore comment service this afternoon. Keep checking back; I will update as best as I can. Thank you for your patience.

UPDATE: Comments have been restarted by Hosting Matters. The script was dragging down the server for CQ, and since I share a server with other HM users, it was only fair for HM to suspend the process until traffic returned to normal. Fair play -- and they've responded very quickly to restart it.
