Server trouble today

Sorry for the persistent issues that have been going on for the last 3+ hours. After about three uninterrupted years of service, the CoG/BigDino web server started experiencing hard freezes this morning (totally unresponsive to anything). And it’s the best/worst kind of freeze—they’re intermittent, with no apparent triggers, and there’s absolutely nothing out of the ordinary in any of the logs.
