Oh, yes, indeed, it doesn't come much more serious than a DDoS attack but fortunately my attack occurred between 1:15 to 3:45pm Pacific Time - and, no, I haven't a clue what that is in proper Greenwich Mean Time which is, of course, the only time by which a gentleman would wish to set his fob watch. What's that you say? You don't know what a DDoS attack is? Honestly, I don't know how you get through life! It is a distributed denial-of-service attack and yesterday (I think!) it hit those lovely blonde ladies in California who take such good care of me at TypePad but I am happy to assure you all that Betty-Mae, Cindy-Lou and Daisy-Belle, all of whom, of course, are 6' tall, blonde, statuesque and roller-skate to work, saw the rascals off without any trouble so service here at Duff & Nonsense was only briefly interrupted. They are such splendid gals and the kindness with which they treat a crotchety, old, English git gentleman like me cannot be praised too highly. I trust none of you were inconvenienced by the hiatus, I must confess I didn't feel a thing and if TypePad hadn't told me I would never have known. Anyway, who the hell is up and about at 2.00pm Pacific Time?!

If the boss complains tell him to get a sense of priorities! Thanks, Andra, that started my day in the best possible way:
