Site Issues...

Some of you may have noticed that our site's been up and down all day, and it's still going on.  This is apparently due to a Distributed Denial of Service attack on another store hosted by Shopify, which is also our shopping cart host.  There's not a whole lot we can do at this point other than wait and hope that Shopify gets their act together.  This is frankly not the first time this has happened, and every time it does they assure all of their stores that they've figured it out, implemented steps to prevent a recurrence and assured us that it won't happen again.  Then, a few months later, it does.

In every case, within a day or so (once the DDoS attack is over), everything's back to normal.  But we're not happy about this.  The only reason we haven't already switched our store out to another host is that it is a HUGE amount of work to do so.  But we're going to look further into it more seriously, because this can't keep happening.

If you're trying to reach our store and all you can get is this blog, just try back again in a little while.  Our blog still works because it's hosted by Blogger, not Shopify.

Yes, this is also why we still haven't finished adding the current round of Victorian maiden reserve items - every time we get halfway through a product, our site crashes.  Hopefully we can finish before they expire on the 21st...

UPDATE:  We're told all the problems should now be fixed.
