The site seems to be running slow tonight too.

And my feet hurt.

I was trying to get on a few minutes ago, and it said there were 50,000+ guests.

We are under attack by zombie computers.

DOS= denial of service

basically some script kiddies attacking the web server with hundreds and thousands of hits, bogging down traffic.

And then there's the DDOS, Distributed Denial Of Service attack - same thing, but on a larger scale, coming from 'owned' pc's / servers on the net.

The only real way to stop it is at the provider level with filtering to stop the requests before they get to the server.

Freakin zombies are a pain in the ass! I swear, one of these days I'm gonna get enough of them stinking bastards and there will be a big mess to clean up on aisle everywhere, if you know what I mean!

If the servers were Mac's we wouldn't have this problem...
