Celebrate?

A day is coincidence, a week is celebratory

And even that seems like it may be presumptuous sometimes...

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.

Yikes. I want to stomp whoever's doing this crap. Yes, yes, I'll get in line. Smile

Thanks, DeepThought, for using your awesome brain to build a defense against the "people" who're trying to wreck the site. I don't understand too much about attacks like this, but whatever you set up seems to be working.

I would e-mail you cookies if that were actually possible.

In this case I got some help and learnt allot. It would have taken me longer to deal with all this by myself. I like cookies though! cheers.

I bestow upon you one cookie of your choice, as per your valiant attempts at saving the TTA kingdom.

Use it wisely.

RE: TTA website is down sometimes
Since friday I have not been able to connect to the site directly. Sunday Dark Light had me try using a proxy and I was able to connect. I have tried multiple browsers have reset my ip have basically tried everything I could on my end. Also this morning when I attempted to use the proxy I had used yesterday the same thing happened to it (connection timed out).

I can whitelist your ip or an ip address range.

Just give me your ip.
