Who pulled the plug out?!

Rumour has it that Dave's pet rabbit George knawed through the wiring and the site went down. Or did someone forget to pay the bill? Big Grin

yeah, they did. Angry

anyway, after 18 hours of downwtime and 2 hours back up, even now no-one's really told me what the problem was. apparently some kind of DDOS attack but that's all i've got

the one positive was the fantasy site, which is running on the new server cluster that the main site will also be on, was unaffected. mostly. it was very slow in the morning as it was trying to drag the ads and some images from the unresponsive main site. so apologies for that.

it's been a long time since I worked in running websites BUT shouldn't they have contingency plans for running a back-up site when the main one goes down?

I can imagine 1/2 an hour down or so but 18 hours is too long.

(PS Not bothered myself about the down time.)
