Can't make an Instructable Answered

I can't make an Instructable!  Every time I try to make one, the images won't load (or will take a long time to), it freezes every time I save, i can't add steps, and it lags terribly.  I'm not sure if it's the browser I'm using because it used to work just fine.  I'm using the same computer and am currently using Firefox (updated).

Thank you guys for telling me.  I guess I'll try again later.   By the way, this might sound like a stupid question, but what is a DoS attack?

A simple way to envision it, would be to picture a whole lot of computers, all hitting F5 on our homepage, over and over and over again.

Let me know if you'd like more (or better) info.

We've been dealing with a DoS attack on our site, which has been making things a little buggy and slow.  Give us some time...we're working on fixing the problem.

The internet has been very slow the last week especially this site and a few others that have been hit directly.

It looks as if it might be better now so try again.
