Finally Back On-line

It looked to me like a DOS attack yesterday based on some data I looked at. Couldn’t get into the SQL database, which meant no website. But, email and FTP worked.

Then I changed my password, and it meant I was down longer. Sigh. Big super long thank goodness I wrote it down password now.

    Dang Teach. Sorry to hear that but glad you are back.

    Was the DOS attack directed at you? Or your hosting company?

    Anyways, I am glad you’re back you ol’ scallywag.


  2. If it was a DOS (there’s always the possibility it was unintentional, as I was getting tons of spam lately) , directed at this site and not Dreamhost. The URL I have for my test site and Gallery site were completely unaffected, same with webmail which uses the piratescove address.

    Wow. You must have ticked off a lot of hot/warm/cool/cold/weather/climate people. 😉

    Glad that you are back and looking spiffy.

    If I don’t “see” you, have a great Thanksgiving my friend.


  4. You have a fantastic Thanksgiving too, GT!

    It could have been Islamists. I’ve had it happen before.

    It looked to me like it happened again this afternoon.

    Glad you are back though.

  6. Yeah, it did. I went and blacklisted a few IPs that Dreamhost sent my way using the htaccess file. Was at work and had to download an app to give me access to the blog folders. Came back up shortly after.

    crap.. back online. Welp, guess that means we have to put up with silly racist little basement-dwelling john again (still).


  8. He’s around somewhere….heh, maybe it was him?

  9. PS: That’s a joke, John. I sincerely enjoy you coming by.

    Hmm. The comments bring up a good idea. Why aren’t we calling the global warming alarmists ‘global warming jihadists’ or something like that? They certainly want to destroy our way of life and send us back to the stone age just like jihadis…

  11. Hmm, that is a good idea. I’m going to have to steal that starting with my next AGW post.

    now now.. don’t be racist

    Just so you know Teach, my ISP is holding a sale for 50% off orders. There doesn’t seem to be any catches to it and it looks like the deal runs in perpetuity.

    I think they are the same or cheaper than your host and I know that 50% off is cheaper.

    It may be something to take a look at.

    The deal is a “Black Friday” deal.

    See ya
