From The New York Times, re: the hackers …

The greatest newspaper in the world was shut down (on line) by some losers who didn’t want the world to read The NYT’s reports on the Syrian government’s chemical gassing of their citizens (kids and women included) and President Obama’s most likely military intervention.

Dear New York Times Reader,

As you may be aware, on Tuesday, access to our Web site was impacted by a malicious attack at our domain name registrar.

This resulted in many users being redirected to a bad domain address instead of NYTimes.com.

We resolved the issue by early Tuesday evening but there have been some lingering problems due to some Internet Service Providers not yet updating our Domain Name System records.

We fully expect that all access will be restored by the end of the day today and we deeply regret any inconvenience this may have caused.

Sincerely,

The New York Times

Speakers scheduled include mayor Michael Bloomberg, Sex and the City actress Cynthia Nixon, former Mets star Keith Hernandez and former poet laureate Billy Collins. Here’s a look back at its illustrious history. If you’d like more, here is an interactive feature on Grand Central’s secrets
