Is this site busier than usual or getting some type of attack disrupting service? : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread

Having a brutal time connecting to this forum, my ISP seems to be fine. What's happening? Anybody?? Unusual number of hits? Server problems? Or just me?

This time of night this should not be happening. Maybe the marshaals are taking over the Forum! Get the signs out!

Last night there seemed to have been a LOT of polly floods trying to clog the server. I saw some, but they were quickly deleted. Many times, I got a "page not available" message.

Wusses like "Y2K Putz" have a history of participating in "denial of service" attacks against this board. Maybe that happened too.

Yeah, but what are the specifics behind the Free Republic forum disruption this week? Was it routine or was it a hack job?
