Nire, we may not always have seen eye-to-eye on some threads, but I just want to say: "I feel the bummedoutage." DDoS attacks suck worse than a bard with bad lag in a KC group with no enchie. Glad the site is up, undamaged, and all.

I did notice the downtime actually, but either I tried to access the site very shortly before the attack stopped and normal service resumed, or else you got it under control fast enough. Either way, at the time I assumed that you were just doing some unscheduled system maintenance, and didn't worry further. Kudos on getting it fixed (at least from where I'm sitting) so quickly.

Andredien,

thanks for the kind words. Aparently it was a pretty major attack that affected a large portion of B.C. (according to RackForce my datacenter). It rendered their entire data center unreachable for a certain amount of time.

Like you said...DDOS attacks suck. We take every precaution against such attacks but given the current state of Internet networking, security and the TCP/IP Protocol it is impossible to prevent this type of criminal attack.

I think I speak for all the message board users when I say that I feel we need to be paid, and paid well, for this down time. Its truly an outrage
