Yeah, there was a DDoS attack on DNS servers and the site could not be accessed for a bit.

Whew!

Glad it wasn't me!

I mean, I probably need a shower, but still...

Who delivers a DDOS attack to a stamp & coin site? Poor beggars must have nothing to occupy their time. The site was down for me here in Australia about 9 or 10 hours ago, but smooth as silk now.

Normally, I just assume down for upgrades etc,

However, this time I checked on..............
http://www.isitdownrightnow.com/

And it showed SCF was up and OK around the world, Including Sydney.

That's what threw me.

Hi Bobby De La Rue,
I am not sure that the DDoS attack was targeted against this particular site, it was targeted to one of the DNS servers that our host use.

I don't know about attacks or anyone else but I stayed off because of James. (That is a joke.)
