Pyrrho accidentally cut the cable to the internet during the latest ditch digging.

I see Pyrrho hasn't yet installed the backflow preventer in the Web pipes. Sad.

According to Pixy, there was a ddos attack. 7.8 gigs on a 1 gig connection. Pixy fixed it.

I don't see you running a backup.
You run one time, you got yourself a set of chains. You run twice you got yourself two sets. You ain't gonna need no third set, 'cause you gonna get your mind right.

DDOS nonsense continues and there may be service interruptions despite the filtering. Pixy is working on a more robust defense.

Meanwhile I have backed up everything and have downloaded local copies of the backups.

And why would they bother with Pixy. Not that Pixy ain't well worth bothering but there are real hosts out there just asking for it.

Maybe it was some FHG (feminist hacker group) response to my womansplaining thread.

I'd like to think it was all about me.

I can accept that.

Also we need an Emergency Communications Network. Something where we can connect if the site is down, for info and reassurance and a safe space.

We can wear uniforms and such.

According to Pixy they were targeting a certain other forum.

YMMV.
