Just to leave a public notion:
We've seen some server outages yesterday which turned out to be caused by a so called "ddos"-attack (basically, some folks felt like overloading the wikiloops servers with gazillions of requests at once, it's a common way to attack a webserver).
As a security measure, some IP ranges had to be blocked from access to wikiloops - should you experience trouble visiting wikiloops using a VPN, that may be connected to that newly installed protection.
Thanks to those who reported in, and your patience while the issue was investigated and eventually fixed.

This smelled of DDOS, yes. Thanks for the explanation, and for the counter-measures Chief :)
