Well we must be doing something right if they are going to all this trouble to bring us down.

Yeah DT. It's been really bad again today. Saying the website is timing out.

RE: TTA website is down sometimes
When I ran a discussion forum and it went down for reasons beyond my control (and once when I accidentally wiped the file system), I found it incredibly stressful knowing people were in cyberspace waiting to get back to talking. People generally do understand though, they can be quite patient and will be happy once the server is up and running smoothly again.

Keep up the good work DT!

I think DT was planning to work on it over the weekend so it is likely to be up and down until he gets it fixed.

RE: TTA website is down sometimes
The site is being hit by a large number of pingback requests. Someone has also been trying to use this site/server to attack other sites.

I'm looking at a more longterm fix in the next day or so which will be better than manually blocking IP's as they pop up.

I'm ditching CloudFlare since they do not protect you against http based (layer 7) distributed flood attack - unless you sign on to the business plan for $200/month. Thats not gonna happen.

There is a cheaper solution and it involves using iptables and scripts to track the access log and update the blacklist as attackers are found.
