As you may have noticed, there have been intermittent connectivity issues with Squidge.org.  The problem is on our end, but it's due to Microsoft.  While we don't use any Microsoft software on Squidge.org, Microsoft's BING search engine has been hitting multiple properties (domains) on Squidge.org, simultaneously, and sometimes requesting hundreds of pages within a matter of just a couple seconds.  This has led to the server being overtaxed, and the database server becoming maxed out on the number of queries it can take at one moment.

I've put some changes in place that should help alleviate the issue and stop Microsoft from hammering us quite so much, but those fixes can take up to 24 hours to propagate - so we may see slowness and have hard times loading pages for the next day or so.  Hopefully it will be resolved by this latest fix.

Let me know if you have questions!
