No, it's not from bandwidth this time! | mrsmiley { March 30, 2004 }

Many of you may have noticed that HBN was down for a bit the past 24 hours or so. This had nothing to do with bandwidth, or anything that I could control. Our host gave the following explaination:

At this time, all network services have been fully restored to our data center. The cause of the outage was a major distributed denial of service attack (DDOS) aimed at one of our main routers. Once we isolated the problem, we quickly worked with our upstream provider to resolve it.

So there you have it. Sorry for the inconvenience!
