Blogoscoped server is slow again
blogoscoped.com/forum/153209.h ...
and not responding. It was not possible to start a thread last evening about 10 hours ago.

Thanks for the note. Unfortunately, the server was under a DDoS attack yesterday. I will see what support tells me today.

(OK, support says the DDoS attack is still going on, except that now they got it better controlled for the moment. Let's see when it completely disappears. If you notice anything unusually slow around here, please drop me an email or get involved in this thread.)

Server performance seems normal for me today.

Any idea why it was being attacked?

It is hard to get involved in this thread when the server doesn't respond for many hours. It might be nice to have a forum or wiki on a different server that we can use to only discuss blogoscoped outages. If we can not do that, perhaps Tony could post status reports on his blog whenever there is a problem.

Maybe a Blogoscoped Status Dashboard :-)

My support and I discussed this: there's a good chance this was just plain random.

I think I will post such status issues to my Friendfeed, you can subscribe to it here: friendfeed.com/philipp

PS: Until everything's very stable, there will be no PersonRank update calculation for the forum....

[put at-character here]Tony: I don't know your timezone, but yeah, there was no problems during the last 7 hour went I posted my reply today in the afternoon.

This thread is locked as it's old... but you can create a new thread in the forum.
