today's downtime
« on: December 01, 2006, 07:53:24 PM »
sorry folks, we weren't sure what was going on but the service we use to host our DNS (which, in layman's terms, is what routes the internet traffic from your computer to our server) was down - probably due to the huge storms moving across the country.  we couldn't even reach their website - this is the first time we have ever seen them down in the years of dealing with this company.  so, took them about 2 hours to get back online, and everything seems fine.  our server was never down, it was just unaccessible by typing in our domain.  if you tried to go directly to our IP address, it worked fine.

again, not our fault this time...  it's still probably gonna be wonky for a few hours, but just hang tight and it'll get better

man i didnt think people still did DDoS attacks anymore. I used to play a game when i was in high school and people would get mad at other people for what ever reason and then would DDoS their connection and take the down for weeks. Then the FBI got involved and i thought that was funny.
