DDoS – Big Dave's Crossword Blog
View closed comments 


Probably as revenge because I have deleted routines that were sending out spam emails on 5-6 occasions, the site has been suffering a Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) for most of the day.  I have transferred the site to Cloudflare, and I am hoping that normal service will be resumed soon.  

Miffypops’ blog has been ready to post since this morning and will added  when the site is more responsive. [Added at 11:50 pm]

  1. Perhaps the time has come to make the site membership only. Don’t know if that would help but it can’t do any harm. Membership on application. Just a thought.

  2. When I hear of people making excuses for hackers, like he / she has Asperger’s is so and so, it makes me so mad, well if that is the case do not let them near the computer, if that is their only enjoyment get them some work to do, have people nothing better to do?

  3. I see in the comments for today’s offering that “You announced on Facebook” that there were problems. How do we join this group to see such messages?

  4. I really appreciate this blog, and though I only found it recently it is now required daily reading.

    Living out in the wilds as we do here, we only get about 3 DTs a week, so if I don’t manage to complete the crossword I often never find out what I should have done, so it is wonderful to find help, entertainment and so much food for thought! It was quite traumatic to lose it on the occasions when it was attacked.

    I applaud your patience in getting through the past week or two, it can’t have been easy.
