ASC back up!

Man, that was a long down time.

I was starting to get the shakes.
I'm glad we are back to normal.

It was related to a hacker attack actually. Nothing fancy, but some script kiddie managed to get access to a low level user account, and was pinging other servers. It didn't actually affect ASC, but the data center the server is located at had a fit when my system started flooding their network.

I can't guarantee they won't pull the plug again, I'm in the middle of tightening up security. I caught the guy right in the middle of accessing the system, he was kind of idiot, but I'm the bigger idiot for letting it happen.

Yeah I don't like the downtime either - this site alone gets used over 6000 times per day, so I know alot of people are missing out while it's down, sorry guys.

Curiously enough, if you take the sine of 666°, you get 0.80901699, which is one half of negative phi, or perhaps what one might call the "anti-phi" / It is opposite of balance and harmony ergo: chaos and disharmony.

Remember it's DOWN THE ROAD not ACROSS THE TRACKS, and use Gillette, they work best.

Holy shit... I thought this guy was banned...

Read the rest of his posts. He's just another computer-geek girlfriendless CS kiddie (Probably 12 or under). Pretty much everything is in "1337", and he's going on about CounterStrike... Jesus Christ Almighty, that is pathetic.
