Sorta'? It may actually kinda' be a good thing. A target like dyn is one of the most robust against this sort of attack, and to a large extent it didn't really do much -- the websites were largely actually still up, it was just a pain to get to them. Most internal/important stuff doesn't really have a problem with that sort of business getting hit.

The upshot, though? This sort of attack basically only has one real counter, and that's expanding infrastructure. Which is something that probably would be pretty nice to see. So if it gets people more aware and investing in/supporting IT infrastructure development...

As a result, not only GitHub, but also Twitter, Netflix, Spotify, Pinterest, Reddit, Airbnb, Amazon, Soundcloud, Paypal, and the Playstation network, as well as the websites of CNN, BBC, New Yor Times, Wall Street Journal and Fox News could not be reached, mostly from the eastern part of the USA, but other parts of the world were also affected. Here in the Netherlands, our national online weather site went offline.

If I may add, the battlefield One servers are also down, not that I would be dumb enough to by an EA game on launch.

After NullForceOmega had reveled that the "new" "Godzilla" is a Goomba from SMB The Movie. I figured it out now!!! It is the long awaited SMB II Movie!!! It was all just  mistranslated!!!

That's technically an action, not a speech... Well it was only a matter of time before I had to write another scene of utter and horrifying perversion.

The blue section really looks like "England and her (former) chums". Oh, and Japan is there.

Wasn't Indonesia Dutch though?

Windmill people tend to hang out near the front at heavy metal shows.


WTF: I feel pretty weird right now, for no apparent reason.
Took my medicine earlier, waited a while, then cooked and ate a bowlful of pasta about half an hour afterwards.
Now I'm sitting here feeling pleasantly spaced-out. Doesn't seem like a normal food coma, I don't think. Weird.

I think I might play some Death Road To Canada.

So, I just had an argument with a GM I never argue with. Don't really want to talk about what it was about, it just was frustrating both in a normal way and in a meta way, because we've never had an issue before, so I kept having WTF moments every time I re-read our conversation trying to figure out what was causing the problem. both of us seem to be upset about this happening, and neither willing to give ground because reasons.

I'm tired, I'm going to sleep, and I'm pretty sure the GM is doing the same. I really hope this dies down in the morning.
Yo, hugs to you Lenglon :D Maybe its more of a misunderstanding rather than anything otherwise--there's somewhere along the lines where some words got understood or seemed like they did, so clarifications help there. Take care with that dude--miss playing with you!

My guitar book suggested filing the nails on my playing hand, so I figured I would. It is the weirdest, most unpleasant tactile sensation ever. It's like nails on chalkboard, except you feel it through touch rather than sound.

I have a tendency to chew mine, weirdly enough.
Or, other people say 'chew'. I say 'groom via teeth'.

Technically, the official name is "Bay 12 Games Forum", but since the address is bay12forums.com, people use that with their choice of spacing.
