Irony of ironies... - MtnVwPilot

May. 2nd, 2006 09:30 pm Irony of ironies...

My web site, mail server, and so forth are all unreachable from the Internet right now, because one of my network provider's other customers is being hammered with bogus traffic by a distributed denial of service attack. The other customer is... LiveJournal.
