Well, you got on the horn and got it back up promptly. The timing should have made it transparent for most of Europe and most of the US.

Was it just your virtualized server?

We're not sure what happened, but the server guys were on it instantly when notified.

I had just one hour sleep last night before going to school this morning. emo-daj.gif

Congratulations on the A, I know how much work goes into getting one of those. A power nap (15-20 minutes) may help.

I wasn't on here last night, so I didn't even know KB was down. wtf2.gif

Maybe it has something to do with Anonymous hacker group at war with Syrian government IT guys? dunno.gif 13.gif

Oh and I'm definitely going to do some power napping on the couch here before too long. hi5.gif

One would think they have better things to do than poke a stick in the kritterbox. 13.gif

Servers go down for a number of reasons (hardware, resource leaks, thread pool issues, connection issues, etc.) so it probably wasn't malicious. Would be nice to know if it was a deliberate attack though.

Yes, if you browse the members list you will note some bannings (maybe same person?)....hmmm, could be malicious. Some people take it VERY badly when they are banned. damned.gif

chuckle.gif We did find a new member that our spam filter decided to kill on the first post. gaah.gif At any rate, she's unbanned... but it had nothing to do with her.
In fact, the server being down had nothing to do with this or anybody else, it was internal on their side, was fixed quickly when they found out about it.
I've heard a lot of forums are having problems with attacks and spam though. It causes a lot of unnecessary work for the admin, and makes people divert attention from the important things.
