Wild Cyber Roller Coaster Week at Windows to Russia…

We have kept the site online more often than not and between three rotating between three web hosts we kept it visible in half the world, at anytime. So as we learn to stop the cyber crap and bull, we are getting better…

I sit here posting and sipping that cup of coffee! I am thinking about where the attacks came from and this time I will let you guess because I am tired of telling the world how full of hypocritical crap the land of perfect enchantment is…

So it has now settled down and what started out as a massive attempt to overload the system by shear volume of hits became a game of survival when my host screamed uncle and decided that they could not handle the attack. So plan B went into effect. I switched to another host that we have set aside. Then I decided after seeing that this could become an issue real quick. Plan C was to set up another system and duplicated everything a third time…

Plan C worked and we are stable again! Other than a 24 hour period of DNS caching issues it seems to have settled in and is happy. So at one point I had three different templates from three different hosts all rotating around the web and not of least, including an ugly 404 server not found page… :)

It was really kinda cool…

We lost two weeks of data due to stupidity of the first host and Sveta with her amazing abilities, recovered most of that. It really helps to have an IBM Server specialist as a Wife…

Sveta and I now have a new game plan to set up for another rude crude and socially unacceptable situation like this week. The one thing about it we learn a whole bunch every time this happens and we know how to swap databases like flipping pancakes now… :)

It will be a few days to get all back inline again and the News site was hit the hardest in all this mess. But we kept all 22,000 posts on news and I was happy…

Thanks for everyone’s patience…

Kyle and Sveta
