Right, so there's currently a DDoS of our site specifically happening. Part of me is mildly annoyed, part of me is proud that we're worth DDoS-ing now. Since it's only slowing us down a bit and not actually shutting us down, I'm half tempted to just let them run their botnet time out. I suppose we should tweak the firewall a bit though. Sigh, I hate working on weekends.
Update: Okay, that appears to have mitigated it; the site's functional at a reasonable rate of responsiveness.
Update2: Attack's over for now. You may go about your business.
