Dreamhost, DP's hosting provider, was performing upgrades and maintenance on its servers including the one which hosts Digital Press from 10 P.M. Pacific Time (midnight Eastern Time). This was supposed to result in scheduled down-time which should have lasted for only four hours but due to complications it endured for much longer.

Details can be found here: http://www.dreamhoststatus.com/2011/...-10pm-2am-pst/

As far as we know there is no more scheduled down-time for the foreseeable future. If there is a time when you do notice the Digital Press Web site or large parts thereof are unavailable, please consult http://status.dreamhost.com/ and check to see if there are any news stories which might make mention of activities which will affect our server's status. These news stories usually include expected hours of servicelessness, likely time of return to normal service, and relevant updates and present status.
