I just noticed I had received storm of notifications from NG.

No wonder -- when we finally got the email system working again, many hundreds of emails were just waiting to be sent. The queue emptied in seconds.

All this makes me wonder what's happening with our sister site ultravioletphotography.com.  I keep getting a notice that the site is suspended, in each of two browsers I have.  Clearing the browsing cache and cookies doesn't help.  https://www.isitdownrightnow.com/ says it's down but https://www.isitdownrightnow.com/ says it's up.  Does the site have a new IP address?

No, UVP is on the same IP. However, there are signs that the UVP site has been compromised thus the hosting providers have suspended it for now. Andrea is working on a solution in conjunction with Support.

The signs of relentless hammering to break into our NG site are a depressing read. I've gone through lots of error logs these last weeks and there have been thousands of hacking attempts every day. A very big country in the Far East is the origin point for these attempts. A sad sign of Modern Times.

Birna, thank you to you and Andrea for all the work you both do to keep these two sites running.

The email delivery system still has a few quirks. Most of which concern gmail addresses, which continue to be blocked. We hope this issue can be solved in the near future.

Thus, if you are no longer receiving notifications from NG, the above can be the explanation.
