    As some of you might have noticed we where having data base issues for a couple of hours.

    We had thousands of mysql connections. I am going to have to drop what I am doing and see what the cause was.

    Something cosmic? because GRIFFINHAWKS emailed me: EDCF is down & British Blades down @ the same time.So I went to WSSMZone and it was down,too.
    That's freakish.

    We have been down a couple of times today. When we have gone down we really didn't have that many people online.

    If there was a denial of service attack, is there a master list of email addresses to update us in case repairs take longer than anticipated?

    I don't think it was just this forum today, as I had trouble getting onto 2 others sites.

    The internet in my office slowed down quite a bit today too, during the forum outage. Maybe EDCForums is some sort of support structure for the internet, and when it goes down, the world suffers!!

    That could very well be, unfortunately it means more work for John if it is this site.
