All the EN team wanted this weekend was an opportunity to wallow in our hard-earned New Year’s hangovers. All we asked for was a soft pillow, some Netflix and a family-sized bottle of ibuprofen.
But … no. Instead of a Seinfeld marathon, we got to spend Jan. 1 questioning our own spirituality as EN drifted in and out of consciousness, a result of massive hacker attacks on our server company Linode.
If you’re reading this right now, it means that EN is still alive. And to all our devoted readers…
… we thank you for your patience as Linode, who hopefully will not bill us this month, worked to resolve the matter. Onward and upward, friends. Presenting the latest batch of reader-submitted eventing struggles:
