      We are sorry about this everyone, but there seems to be little improvement at this time.

      I have posted a site announcement, but for the present time I'm off to get some dinner.

      I can only hope that this attacker gives up soon as there is very little value in attacking this site.

      Work in progress folks.

      Apparently someone was attempting to get into the server but it appears to have been unsuccessful.

      Action is being taken to ensure that this is stopped.

      Can you track them down? I can then arrange for someone to pay them a visit...

      Sadly they seem to not be able to take the hint and they are back today.

      Steps are being taken. Unfortunately it is quite cheap to hire a bank of computers to launch a DDoS attack on a server these days. As these servers are going to be scattered across the globe, it makes it a little difficult to trace the culprit.

      Perhaps he/she will give up when their nappy needs changing?

      They probably think they are attacking Sky, unless we on the forum have REALLY upset someone.

      Re: Painfully sloooooooooooow.

      This is the first time i've been able to reach skyuser since saturday night.

      Page loads / actions are taking 5-10 minutes so i won't hang around, but at least i can get on now so it's an improvement.
