timeouts are another issue. someone decided to ddos freeforums.org. since it lives behind the same firewall, it took everything else down with it hyeteck is at the datacenter trying to isolate ff.org atm.

you mean the powers of crowdgather don't have enough pipes and firewall power to filter out a measly ddos attack on a small forum?

they are including code from outside affiliates for ads - they can slip in lots of unexpected things when they start accidentally throwing in other code for full page ads and what not.

freeforums.org is not a small forum. it is a free hosting platform with 50k+ forums generating 60million page views per month. this also wasnt a measly ddos

you know i'm just tossin' shit at you guys.

I love having the hardware to handle the problems but as all of our stuff isn't public facing for hte most part I don't have to worry too much about waking up to a DDOS attack like you guys have to fear constantly.

to eramus fixing those kind of problems is fun

everyone tosses shit at us. hard to filter sometimes. we are the ones responsible for killing genmay afterall before CG, genmay was generating $50 million per year and pushing over a billion page views per month

yah it can definitely suck having this much on the public side, but it can be fixed. unfortunately, sometimes you have to learn the hard way.

i dont deserve the credit for this one. hyeteck (our sys admin) had the fun job of going down to the data center to resolve the issue. i just got woken up early to my phone going crazy because the shit hit the fan.
