    DDoS Attack

    My apologies to all FreeWebspace.net visitors over the last 48 hours. When the site has been online it's been intermittent at best. If you saw our home page I'm sure you're now aware that we were hit with a large DDoS attack. At times the throughput coming in exceeded 400 mbit/sec. In...

    Downtime

    Just a quick note to say that we're working on a kernel upgrade, and the server will have to be rebooted in a few minutes. [Update: Within 30 minutes, not within a few.] If all goes well we should be back within a few minutes after that.

    3.5 Upgrade / FWS

    As you all have probably noticed we had a significant forum outage today. The vBulletin upgrade only partially completed before there was a problem with mySQL. The upgrade was in a half completed state, and we decided to restore the backup and run it again. With a forum this size restoring...

    Minute of Downtime

    Please note that within the next 15 minutes there will be a period of one minute downtime. We're doing some re-cabling at the datacenter, and it shouldn't take more then a minute to do. We're eliminating some potential bottlenecks, and we're upgrading more of the network to gigabit ethernet...

    Planned Downtime

    Within the next two hours FreeWebspace.net will be completely offline for roughly 5 minutes. We're re-locating the server to a new rack location and hooking it up to a faster gigabit ethernet switch. Please be patient during this brief downtime and we'll have it back as soon as possible.

    Interesting Jurisdiction Issue

    CNN has a story on how police in Italy removed a sites content even though that server was located in the USA. http://www.cnn.com/2002/TECH/internet/07/22/borderless.internet.ap/index.html Question being, do you think they should have the authority to do such? Typically any legal issues...

    New Smilies

    I've seen a few new smilies that I thought would be nice additions to the forum so I thought I would post to get your two cents. I'm not sure where to officially get them and if they are for public use but I've seen them on multiple boards so I would assume so...

    Post Abuse

    Lately there has been an increase in the number of people who are posting in the Free Web Space forum just for the sake of increasing their post counts. It was a bit out of hand because of most of the moderators taking time off over the Holiday season but that is hardly an excuse for...

    Server Time

    The time on the server was indeed further then it should be. I didn't notice this once vBulletin was set up because I rarely look at the time because the posts go in chronological order. Thanks to Woofcat for catching this one early on. :) Anyway, it will still be rather confusing for the...
