    Downtime - what happened?

    This morning at 6 AM my time I got a call from my host saying that D3scene was under attack. In this case not a regular script kiddy attack who does attack from a single IP.

    We were attacked by Zombie computers from hundreds of different IP Addresses from all around the world. Because the load was too heavy Rackspace temporarily shut down the site as the load was spreading throughout other customers.

    Rackspace is still investigating and installed a temporary protection.



    Let's see :-).
    You suck. Suck a little less and become a fan on Facebook.

    When I opened firefox and saw the "404 - Error! The requested URL does not exist" or something like that, I shat my panths.
    Good to see that you are working on it.
