A few things need to happen all at once to fix the underlying problem
(which is: we need more bandwidth in general). The mailinglist downloads
were only part of the problem. A DNS Amplification DDoS attack was
another. Both have been taken care of for now to buy some time.
I will post details shortly but in short it involves moving hosting
providers. This process was started a while ago but I had to abandon it
due to issues with the originally selected provider.
A lot of change on the horizon. All good, too. Just a few growing pains
along the way until it's all done.
