That be the best way to repel boarders!

Psst! Avast there! It be too late to alter course, mateys. And there be plundering pirates lurkin’ in ev’ry cove, waitin’ to board. Sit closer together and keep your ruddy hands in board.

Evidently some trackback-spamming bastards attacked us (and by us I mean my tribe, those hosted here at the m’sphere). My good buddy, Brandon, the host-with-the-most, did battle against the forces of darkness through the night and finally disabled trackbacks for our site (who needs fuckin’ trackbacks anyway, sez I).

The result of all this is that last night and this morning, all of the sites I host were inaccessible for some time. We’re back on line now, thanks to Brandon’s efforts.

And there was much rejoicing.

  1. So…who’s asses do we go kick for this?

    Even if they already got their asses kicked…they didn’t get kicked hard enough. Mess with one of us, mess with ALL of us!

  2. Trackbacks. Yeah, I know those things. Weren’t those those nifty troop carriers the Nazis used?

    Oh, Christ, I am my Mom’s son.

  3. Johnny drove the halftrack
    cause we could not find the jeep
    with me in the morning gotta get some sleep
    driving all night out of fear
    got in the ribs every time I changed gear

  4. RAY!

    Shhhhh….don’t tell anyone about the free, mang. We’re about to start getting really jiggy and trying to sell this. 🙂

    The problem was easy to “fix”, the hard part was getting in to do it. Whatever/whoever was hitting things just as soon as it came up from reboot, well ahead of my ssh-ness.

    Haven’t done a full audit of the log yet, but if I can narrow things down, someone’s getting stuck to the wall. Count on it.
