For those still reading my posts (all three of us) who were unable to access the site recently, the host sent a note detailing the events surrounding a concentrated Denial of Service attack that occurred over the past week.
They even provided a spiffy 50% off coupon for services by way of "making up" for the situation.
There are two remarkable things, there. First, that a simply blog hosting site would be victim of such a concerted effort. Perhaps I need to do hit more of the sites they host. I might be missing something. And second, that they would provide a discount coupon for the ridiculous acts of an outside party. Unfortunately, such attacks are just part of life in the Internet world. (Should we thank Al Gore?)
Weebly has apparently spent a great deal of time and money to improve their infrastructure and ability to handle such attacks in the future. Given their handling of the situation, it's only fair to recommend them for anyone looking for somewhere to set up a blog.
Just who is this Iron Pol?
A former out of shape sailor, who became a marathoner, then a triathlete, Ironman, and ultramarathoner. Now, life has pushed me into short track speed skating. More important than the titles is the lifestyle, and sharing it with others.
