Downtime
« on: June 20, 2006, 08:34:46 PM »
We're sorry for the downtime we've been experiencing recently. Our new servers are on Bluehost, and they have this to say about it:

Today we experienced several MAJOR distributed denial
of service attacks against our network. We regret that
you experienced some downtime today. We have worked
diligently today to further protect our network from
these types of attacks. The attack today came from
MANY different computers at the same time. This makes
it difficult to block and resolve the issue.

Please know that we are working as hard and efficiently
as we can to make sure interruptions are brief and rare.
The shared hosting environment lends itself to outages
and occassional downed servers. We will recommit ourselves
to make sure that we not only provide a hosting service
with remarkable packages, but also with the service
and support that you have come to expect with your Bluehost
experience.

Wow DNS attacks, if we're going to have downtime it might as well be from something serious.  Hope they get it attacks countered so this doesn't continue.
