Reposting this here by way of getting the word out to SFWA members:
SFWA.org has been under a DDoS attack since roughly 10am. We are working to restore the site as quickly as possible.

For those who don’t know, a DDoS attack basically means someone is hitting our web site with automated frequent requests with the intent of blocking access to it. We’re not speculating on who or why; what we’re focused on is getting the site back up. Our Web folks are fixing it as we speak.
Update: We’re back up.
