        [notices that a link to my forum is nowhere to be found o_O]

        http://www.xflarenetwork.com/forum Might aswell post a link to it so I can get a nice online record, if this happens again

        It would be so good if they'd attacked it, try to ping www.whitehouse.gov
        For some reason, I am getting the feeling that you guys don't understand the theory behind DDOS attacks. I could explain it or I could point you to a site that explains it better than I can. I think I will do both. In a DDOS attack, mutiple computers send data (obviously useless) to a computer hoping to overload the computer's internet connection. If your server's internet connection is at 100% load, you are effectively forced offline. I have never heard of a computer processor being overloaded by a DDOS attack to the point where it can't process anymore but I suppose it could happen (although not likely). Anyway regardless of what you run, if the internet connection fills up, you are offline. The person who is attacking message boards is obviously an amateur since he doesn't know how to blast a site correctly. If he knew what he was doing, he wouldn't be blasting exampledomain.com/forum, he would be blasting exampledomain.com with enough traffic to fill up the connection. Anyway, here is the link to an article that explains this better than I can:

        http://grc.com/dos/grcdos.htm

        Edit: I forgot to mention. Since vBulletin.com is hosted by a company, the jerk attacking it would have to send at least 10GB of Data to push it offline considering how the company would have at least a 10GB connection.

        • Yes, the theory behind a DoS attack is to deny service (duh!) to others who want to use the site.

          But everybody here is laughing because their servers can obviously withstand what this dude is doing with little or no problems.

          In three words: we're mocking him.
          :)

            Yeah I know. I thought some people thought that the DDOS attack was meant to overload the CPU.

            • I see so it's not to do with the actual server. Thanks for that information as I thought it was .

              Either way I'm hosted at Rackshack who have massive connections so I don't think this amateur could've done enough damage.

              • I haven't gotten attacked yet I'm disappointed, now I'll have to make my forum ultra popular in order to test out the power of dual xeon 2.4's w/ 2 gigs of ram and 2 120 gig WD's with 8 megs of cache

                  • It's incredible. The load never goes above 0.03

                    All my Invision board pages take 0.08 seconds or less to generate, and all my vB3 pages take 0.4 or less. Consistently, too. No random spikes at peak times like on our previous server.

                    I'm itching to start hosting some sites on us.

                    • Oh well, they wont ever find my boards :P If they do, I'd like to see how my vB3 handles it

                      Just in case, http://www.invoid.net/forum
                      Try to take it down, I beg of you :P

                        Your style reminds me of WHT.

                          Is it just me or are the fonts on your buttons so tiny to the point where they hurt to read? Seriously, what is the big deal with super-small fonts on buttons? Pixel fonts I can understand an obsession with, they do seem to have become the fad for buttons in the last 2-3 years, but not these godawfully small sizes that only ants can read!

                          • So far my members have not complained yet, plus they are temp. I will be waiting vB3 RC1 or the first release where templates will be saved when upgrading. This is just temp style, I was playing around with colors. I really liked them, I've seen them on several sites.

                                10GB connection?
                                ya right.
                                about a year ago, we were Telia Sweden's (Telia Net - google for it if you haven't heard about them ) biggest customer.
                                We had a one giga*bit* connection (well, 4 of them over 4 physical locations ).

                                Talking about 10GB is just *stupid*.
                                Unless my maths are off, you're talking about a connection near 84000 megabit per second.

                                Have a look at rackshack's network usage: http://rackshack.net/english/aboutus/networks.asp
                                They're a *really* big host.. and there's no 10GB listed

                                I'd say the best way to comment on your post is "no", but thanks for trying
