And We’re Back!!!

This site (and others on my server) has been down for a few hours this afternoon, due to a massive pinging from China. I finally tracked down the source of the pinging to the University of Electronic Science and Technology of China based in Sichuan. Thankfully it wasn’t a DDOS but rather probably just an overly keen student trying to perform a download of an mp3 file via  a russian search engine.

IP address blocked, problem solved and email sent to abuse@net.edu.cn.

All is now well (and all manner of things shall be well).
