Sorry about the glitches.
Advertisements [?]
We have had a huge spike in traffic during the last two days. Elad is doing what he can to hold things together with duct tape and chewing gum.

And if it wasn't apparent before, it is now obvious that it's time for another server upgrade. We have already contacted our web hosting company to discuss getting more hardware. Unfortunately, hardware upgrades take time, so we won't have it in place any time soon. But hopefully we'll have it in place before the next crisis, whatever it may be.

Thank you for your patience.
