It would appear that the web service is down?

Hi,

Sorry for the trouble.  It looks like some loser is trying to do a DDOS attack.  I'm getting it under control...

cheers,

Is nova.astrometry.net still down?  I'm getting a 503 Service Unavailable error.  Who would want to take nova.astrometry.net down with a denial-of-service attack?

It was up, but then was down overnight.  This is due to a different issue -- the DDOS attempt was quite feeble and I blocked it with some simple rules.

cheers,
