Obama Waffles has somehow taken my business site down
Edited on Sun Sep-14-08 07:20 PM by thecorrection
Somehow people are equating me with Obama Waffles in some way. My website has been taken offline because of high load count. I'm getting hammered from somewhere and I don't know how or where. I got an email warning me this may happen.

If anyone has a website and has spoken out against Obama Waffles, be careful.

On edit: Now the site seems to be back.

1. Wow.
Do you live in a state with a Dem. attorney general? You might want to look into this hijacking of your business. That's serious.

7. Name servers have interrupts sometimes. If the IP isn't served up at the name server
you have no where to call.

8. First, you examine your log file, to see if you were online.
A DOS attack creates log entries. It is not the providers job to read your logs; should they access them they trample your privacy.
