Dharmawheel is offline. Please inform David. From the error I am getting, it looks like a possible denial of service attack.

Hi Catmoon
Any ideas of what could have happened?
It looks like it went offline a few hours ago.

I was not logged-in when it happened, but saw this thread and also could not get in over there. Contacted my webmaster and web hoster and problem is solved. Yes it appears it was a DDOS and fortunately we have a good hosting company so it was pretty quickly resolved.

That is very reassuring, David!
Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.

Taṃ nadīhi vijānātha:
sobbhesu padaresu ca,
saṇantā yanti kusobbhā,
tuṇhīyanti mahodadhī.
