The One Where My Site Was Suspended
Saturday | April 24, 2004 | 3:25 PM | Nikki | Comments (6)

My site was down for more then 17 hours last night and today because of some stupid DoS attack on the sever I'm on. Then they actually suspended my account. Did they really think a 16 year old girl was capable of targeting one of their severs and giving them one of the biggest dos's they've ever had? I bugged them about it for awhile and someone told me to have a little patience but after 17 friggin' hours it was gone. Well, when they finally got back to my e-mails it turned out my site was one of the sites that were involed and targeted toward the attack. Great, totally my luck. If you look on the bright side of things though, thats 17 hours of bandwidth I no longer have to worry about, 17 hours of e-mail I don't have to read, and 17 hours of fans I don't have to add to my fanlistings. After all that they should've given me a few extra gig of bandwidth for the hassle though. ;-)

Yeah your on 49 so you were safe and sound =) I think your sever only has been down once or twice. The 48 one has been having problems for a while. I'm glad it was mine though, I would have felt bad if it were your site because I was the one that told you to join up with TCH anyway ;-)

Sorry for the extended downtime on your site. Server48 has been the target of several dos attacks over the past month.

Anyways, enjoy your upgraded account. I am truly sorry about the downtime.

Hi, sorry about the rant up there, but you of all people know how downtime can make anyone feel upset. Thanks again for the upgrade, it means so much to me.
