Science-based medicine blog—too successful

Science-based medicine, my other blogging venue, is temporarily down. The posts are written by a stable of fantastic professionals, and they are always a good read—except for today. Recently, we migrated to a new server and shortly thereafter, the blog became buggy until it crashed completely. The culprit appears to be traffic—lots of traffic. That’s a good thing (unless it’s a DDOS attack, which is not completely implausible).

So, Steve Novella, the guru behind SBM and many other skeptical ventures is moving us to a new host where all will be unicorns and rainbows. Stay tuned.

    Wait. Unicorns don’t exist. Rainbows do exist. I’m so confused.

    Have you ever considered that unicorns and rainbows might be the cause of your problems? Frankly, both are known for being vindictive bastards, at least in the circles I move in. Especially the unicorns.

    Science-based Unicorns?!! Hooray!

    The Green party is going to be so mad.

    We’ve migrated to the new server, and now all that’s left should be DNS propagation.

    Whew… I was worried. I NEED that site to help counteract my wife’s friends info.

    Still down as of Oct. 7. Gone for good or just a hiccup?

    I am anxiously awaiting this blogs return. I would love to know what happened! It is a travesty that I cannot link to it at present, as it is the best defense against the ignorance faced so often.
