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.

That's DDOS.

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!
“No lists of things to be done. The day providential to itself. The hour. There is no later. This is later. All things of grace and beauty such that one holds them to one's heart have a common provenance in pain. Their birth in grief and ashes.”

Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.
