Neither Bean or I was able to get online for most of the day yesterday. The members who couldn't get online want to know what happened. Mike said he was having the Cat Forum DTs! I was hoping you were working on the new system you had planned.

I got on for about an hour in the afternoon, but not in the morning or evening.

the site was down for because the web host had a denial of service (DoS) attack.

DOS:


Short for denial-of-service attack, a type of attack on a network that is designed to bring the network to its knees by flooding it with useless traffic. Many DoS attacks, such as the Ping of Death and Teardrop attacks, exploit limitations in the TCP/IP protocols. For all known DoS attacks, there are software fixes that system administrators can install to limit the damage caused by the attacks. But, like viruses, new DoS attacks are constantly being dreamed up by hackers.

i will post the info on the forum......
