Our tech people have used their black magic to speed up www.volokh.com, and reduce the risk of brownouts. But apparently there weren’t enough virgins to sacrifice, or some such, and the incantations only worked for www.volokh.com — though volokh.com gets forwarded to www.volokh.com, the forwarding will delay things slightly for the user, and will cause some extra load on our servers.
So if you could change your bookmarks to point to http://volokh.com, we’d be much obliged. This would be especially useful now, given that we expect a traffic spike next week when the health care cases are likely to come down.
And keep in mind that there might be a voodoo doll with your name on it. Thanks so much for your cooperation!
