    We are under another ddos attack. It began about 20 minutes ago. Every effort has been put forward to bring the site back up as quickly as possible.

    Because NI is down both www.tomcoyote.com and www.zerosrealm.com will also be down. Unfortunately the mirror server was quite finished. But I will have those 2 sites up today even if this isn't brought under control quickly and NI remains offline.

    Responded :)

    I'm not sure how long this will take. The attack is being analyzed to establish the necessary filtering. The server is rebooted and DNS turned off temporarily.

    I'm just not sure what I'm dealing with completely yet. I'll try my best to keep everyone up to date.

    The attack must have been short lived, both the NI and TomCoyote are up and running well for me. Great Job Eagle1

    It was very similar to the last one and the filtering should handle it. There may be an occasional hiccup but its under control now.

    Thanks :) Board software upgrade in combo with a dual xeon 2.4 Ghz CPU w/533 Mhz FSB + hyperthreading, 2 MB PC2700 DRR RAM, SCSI HDD, and Terabyte+ bandwidth server - plus needed defenses should do the trick :)

    By all means: you're most welcome!

    regards.
