Greetings all. Thought I'd share some inside news with you. About 2300 GMT, our server started to get some obscene traffic. Obscene traffic isn't really abnormal for us, especially during peak times, but at 2300 GMT (when it normally begins to settle) our alarm bells started ringing. DDOS was the first speculative comment from a colleague of mine.

Anyway, we found the answer after sifting through our log files. Apparently, a BRAND-NAME PROTECTION COMPANY has been vehemently searching our headlines for articles on the Land Rover Defender used in the Tomb Raider movies, and then retrieving them.

I wonder what's going on.... the plot thickens...

OK. It's official. Main mag is under DDOS attack. Bear with us folks, things could slow up a little.

Ugh. What puny company needs spyware? :rolleyes: Not noticed any slow down- but haven't been online for about a week, so that probably explains it. :D
