Uhm, Is Everything All Right? "Everything is under control. Situation normal. We're all fine here, now, thank you. How are you?" That can't be right, can it?

I expect what you're seeing is overload caused by NIMDA. My server activity is through the roof and nearly all of it is bogus.

That's what I was wondering. It seemed like people were locking it down pretty well today, but all of a sudden sites were either not coming up or not displaying any images.

First time I've seen Australia with Internet access times as good as the US.

It's changed. Now I have missing time. I must have been abducted by Invader Zim.

That's gotta be an error, the lowest I've ever seen it go was 27, and that was during the peak of code red.

I just fired up my Unreal Tournament server, that's why.

i just spent 20 hours (most of which = downtime) fighting off that fucking Nimda. and even though our servers are now clean, we're still getting hammered by others trying to infect us. what a nightmare. long live apache! and all that..

I didn't see just a low number, earlier (about a couple hours ago.).. I saw a 0. ur? i was scared, but realized immediately, it couldn't have been that bad, considering i got to the page in the first place.

Check out Trend's virus map. Nimda is of course number one, but look at the amazing staying power of loveletter, its #3!
