First it was a DDoS attack and then my power went out...

As for what happened today to the site, I guess first our host had a DDoS attack. Then, when they came back, our database was not letting anyone post. So, I rebooted that server (we have two servers now) and it didn't want to come back online. So, I put in a Support Ticket and then.... a huge *pop* was heard very close by and our power went out. I stepped out on the balconey to see what happened and a fire was starting in a tree across a nearby street. Called 911, firetrucks arrive, talk to neighbor.... a branch in the tree had fallen onto a high power line and caused the power outage. Three hours later.... my power comes back on and I try to find out what's up. The site is still down but I can finally ping the second server. However, mysql is throwing errors all over. I looked into that problem and finally got it fixed.

Bottom line, we are back up and I hate servers more than ever. Anyone want to be my Server Admin?

Good work, both in reporting the fire and with getting the Den back up.

Glad you can make it back on

This is an older thread. The problem last night was the flood of new members (and old ones) for the Live 8 downloads. It also may have been attributed partially to the new tracker. I hear trackers can suck the resources of a server, but that's only what I heard somewhere else. I have no direct knowledge of that.
