TO whom it may concern........

Over the last 24 hours this website has gotten buggier than an outhouse. I keep getting errors from"cloudflare" stating that the site is offline and it's redirecting me to a cached page.

This is the only site that I'm having issues with, so, applying Occam's razor.....

What's "Occam's Razor"?

I've been on here on and off (mostly on) since yesterday and the site was only down for me for about 30 minutes today and is fine now.

It should be fine now.

I got the same thing about 4-5 times yesterday and once this morning, where it redirected me to Cloud Flare if on PC or just refused to connect via phone.

And it's still doing it.

BTW, Occam's razor?

other things being equal, a simpler explanation is better than a more complex one

Simple explanation (right now) is that the downtime has nothing to do with cloud fare. It's a separate issue.

Cloudfare is a program that allows users to still use a cached version of the site in the event of another DDOS attack by those WoR freaks.

I seem to get that too when traffic peaks. I have the IT guys looking into it.
