We were not sleeping this past week, Typepad was just wobbly
Apologies to those of you who tried to pay a visit to'Serge the Concierge' between Thursday, April 17 and early Wednesday, April 23...
TypePad, the publishing platform we have used since March 2005, was the victim of repeated denial of service attacks....From what I gathered some internet bandits use that kind of tactic to extract a ransom from companies by attacking them.
Not sure if that was the case in this instance.
Bottom line, because of these attacks, we were mostly inaccessible for readers for 6 days.
We will try to make up for lost time.
In coming days, we should pay a visit to Food Book Fair in Brooklyn on Saturday and a tasting of Wines from Corsica is on our calendar for Wednesday next week.
In the meantime, there is plenty to explore in hundreds of pieces already published...
