Sorry for all the downtime at Lottery Post today.

The data center in which we operate our servers has been experiencing serious network issues, and they are working with the local Internet trunkline providers for the past several hours to get it resolved. Hopefully we'll be back up & running soon.

When this kind of thing happens we have to wait along with you for it to be resolved.  It is just as frustrating for us as I am sure it is for you when Lottery Post is not working perfectly.

Things appear to be getting back to normal, but if it goes down again, just try back in a few minutes.

Again, I am sorry for the downtime.  I hope it didn't impact you too badly.

        Thanks, Todd.  You do a good job keeping the site up and running.  Wish my cable company was as reliable.

                  The downtime was brutal to my delicate psyche. Crying

                      I posted additional info about the downtime via Facebook and Twitter last night, so for everyone who did not see it, I'll repeat here what has been happening.

                      Yesterday around noon Eastern Time a massive and sophisticated distributed-denial-of-service attack (DDoS) started that affected not only our hosting company, but several others as well.  According to the data center management, it was one of the largest DDoS attacks that has been seen, and proved to be difficult to snuff out. 

                      Unlike most DDoS attacks that target a particular Web site, this attack was broadly aimed at a large range of IP addresses, affecting perhaps thousands of businesses.  Lottery Post was but one of the thousands affected.  The attack was sophisticated in that when the network engineers attempted to stop it, the attack would adapt and change.

                      Network engineers have been working since that time to chip away at the attack to fully stop it.  Although the attack was largely stopped by around 3:30 am this morning (Eastern Time), it is still continuing, and you may notice periodic slowdowns and momentary outages today.

                      This is the same kind of attack that brought down Twitter for a day recently.  These malicious attacks that ultimately affect YOU are the reason law enforcement should not "take it easy" on hackers who propogate this stuff.  It is the equivalent of bombing a building or cutting power lines.  These jerks cause real damage to hard-working people, and take away your ability to use Web sites.

                          Its gonna get worse as more 3rd world countries become more tech advanced. This attack was probably done by 16yr old kids in the Ukraine .    Funny pic Mcginn.
