Rant

Feh

Not a DDOS attack this time; not as such, anyway.

We've been getting flooded with trackback spam, 2500 per minute at peak periods. This seems to have been causing Apache to go nuts. Or seemed to be the cause, at least. I zapped all the trackback scripts last night after rebooting the server after the latest Apache episode, and went to bed.

And then Apache locked up again.

Long story short: We're moving to new servers. That will give me a chance to rebuild everything properly, which is rather hard on a busy production server that is the constant target of DDOS attacks, hacking attempts, spam floods, and every other noxious event known to the 'net.

1 Do you know when Kei & Yuri get a new Lovely Angel, Pixy?

2 Crepe.  When I moved to Chiyo-chan, I lost your e-mail addy, Pixy ... could you please drop me a line?  I have a few anime files that I think you'd like.

3 Kei and Yuri will be retiring.  The new servers are named Akane and Nabiki, which at least gives me room to add more...

4 Ack!   Now, to give you nightmares, imagine what spam will be like in 20 years, when processors are 1 million times more powerful.
