Nearly half of the Northern Alliance of Blogs (and its creator) were down today - reportedly due to an attack on a Hosting Matters network coming from computers in Saudi Arabia. Hosting Matters says everyone is back up now ... except,
The target of the attack will not be brought back online and will be removed from the main network in the event they are the target of future attacks, so as not to negatively impact other clients.
Powerline or Hugh Hewitt may have been the target ... they're still unreachable.

The MOB appears to be unscathed though. Draw your own conclusions.

UPDATE: The speculation is that the attack is related to the Pakistan government's list of banned web sites, namely its honoree Aaron's cc: (author of Aaron's Rantblog and Aaron the Liberal Slayer) and publisher of cartoons more offensive than the infamous Danish doodles.

Hewitt is up, but Powerline's still down...


Hi there. Thx for the link. Interesting blog you have here, even though we are not exactly "on the same page" politically.
