Possible DDOS attack
« on: February 22, 2015, 02:07:51 PM »
We a popular, HUZZAH!!!

There seems to have been some very unusual traffic today so if you are getting an error that says something like "508 - resource limit reached" just try again in a moment. That is the server protecting itself from to many connections to the site (the last one was about 1478 concurrent connection attempts). I won't get in to the technology but when that happens the server throws up its hands and says "NO SOUP FOR YOU!" to everyone. I have upped some of the limits a bit to try to reduce the occurrences but I wanted to let everyone know what is going on and why you might see the message.

Unfortunately there is little that can be done to prevent the connection attempts, all I can really do is mitigate them.
