Good morning, Netizens...
I suppose it's news, but as of three hours ago, the Seattle Times online is inaccessible. Efforts to reach it result in the page(s) timing out, and even their reserve site(s) are down, as well.
I can't ping it, can't reach any of their routers, either. It smells somewhat like the same type of denial of service attack that hit the Spokane area (including the SR) a number of months ago.
It is either that or OMIGOD! What's that huge cloud billowing up over the mountains to the west?
Nah. That's just the weather front moving into the Spokane area. According to the talking heads, we should have a moderately-good dust storm this afternoon. My poor garden needs all the topsoil I can get.
