This server is starting to show its age. Not only is the hardware ancient, it lacks memory and is running a very old, but stable, version of Linux. But none of that prompted me to upgrade – the brute force attacks that have taken this server offline twice in a month have. When you have a botnet of more than 90,000 compromised machines knocking at the back door it makes it hard to keep up.
I have taken steps to help abate the attacks, but still, a machine with more RAM and horsepower will be better able to cope with that load. Not to mention, when I’m discovered and made famous the new server will help keep up with that large amount of traffic that stardom brings with it. LOL!
Suffice to say, if you come to this site over the next couple of weeks and it’s not available, know that I’m working on it and will have it up and running as soon as I can.
