We're Back! Victim of Cyber Terror?

I have no idea what happened all day. My guess is that we were under a DDOS attack from the e-hadis. Yesterday I had a little back and forth with al Qaeda's online minions and swapped out some pictures they were hotlinking for a couple I knew they'd appreciate.

I should have known they'd try something like this. It's the same forum where all the official al Qaeda propaganda is channeled through and the same forum which put together al Qaeda's "online brigades" and instruct their members how to conduct targeted DDOS attacks.

I could be wrong, but the way the website was acting combined with the timing of the site outage leads me to believe this. I'll know more tomorrow, after Pixie wakes up.

In the meantime, it's good to be back. What did I miss?

UPDATE: Post hoc ergo propter hoc! Apparently the two events had nothing to do with each other. The hard drive on the server melted.
