I guess it wasn't a backhoe after all

It looks like last night's LJ problems were due to enemy action and not an accident as I originally suggested in a comment on michaellee's LJ. Six Apart confirmed that they were the target of a distributed DOS attack last night in a post on the lj_maintenance community and in e-mail to the Blogfather by Anil Dash last night.

So is this connected with last week's attack on Hosting Matters blogs? Malkin says yes, Dash and Reynolds aren't so sure. Either way...it would be nice to know that the NSA or DoD has some 1337 h4x0r types on the payroll who are licensed to bring the smackdown, even if those responsible are located in "friendly" territory.

So that explains it. I thought maybe I sacrificed the wrong kind of goat.

You know it couldn't be anything that simple. Speaking of simple, is there some good time & place I could swing by and drop off your accumulated Stipples (both of 'em) and the tape of CSW Jeanne wanted me to give back to you? Feel free to e-mail if you'd rather.
