    We appeared to be under a DoS attack - I've blocked off some fairly large chunks of the internet to try and prevent this.

    What is perhaps surprising is that technology we set up about 2 years ago kicked in automatically, keeping the lights on. We did have a huge performance hit, but the servers stayed up and we didn't get billed for thousands of GB of bandwidth!


    To be blunt, I forgot we had load balanced like we did till I had to look today!
