a big thanks to the staff

My thanks to Terra, Bob, Arthur, Kevin, Sheila and everyone else who helped me out in the last couple of days. We had our own version of nuclear whack a mole going on for 48 hours. Thanks y'all!

Re: a big thanks to the staff

Hi Mont,

Thanks for working with the team and thanks as well for your expression of gratitude. Everyone else is too tired to respond (just kidding...heh, kinda). The storm pretty much hit while I was away, so I was luckier than most, but I have sent the rest of the team involved with this virtual band-aids for their fingers and aspirin for their heads. Would you like some as well?

Glad it seems to be over... knock wood.

Without compromising any sensitive information, I'm sure everyone would like to know more about what happened.

Essentially he has an MQS dedicated server and was under a huge DDoS attack from all over the world. Both in the form of SYN flooding and rapid hits to forum threads.
