    I have been lucky, my site is on VO and no problem at all, as with some other sites I go to that are on VO. I am getting the best server loads I have had in a long time. lol

    Some other sites I go to were down this morning though.

      Its taken out 5 of the 13 root servers so far, i suggest that everyone blocks UDP port 1434. I've been getting scans on my home computer, I've just blocked it on my router now.

            Several sites I like to visit have gone down today... Thought nothing of it though as 3 of them seem to suffer regular shut-downs. Oh well, who needs to read webcomix every day anyhow

                The ironic thing is that if these hackers ever succeed, they would have destroyed their very medium of hacking so they won't be able to do anything else.

                    I've goten hit very hard by this. All of my sites were on Internap, which got hit very badly by these worms And i've also recieved no email in over 14 hours. My ISP isn't delivering it I guess, or else they got hit hard too (shaw cable). My forums have been down for over 12 hours though, so this has been going on this late last night

                      Last night I was working on developing my program that downloads the contents of several dozen websites to check when they were updated. At least a third of the sites were inaccessible... needless to say, my script was having a hell of a time executing when it tried to connect to them all (e.g. 300 seconds and counting ).
