I've been having serious connectivity issues with this host recently. Has it impacted any of you?

If not, enjoy the last page of TALK TALK TALK TALK TALK TALK TALK

[Yes. I heard they were enduring a denial of service attack.]

RE: 'End of Talk'
We are talked into it now any way!

Well, hopefully it improves. I can't really get upset about it, given that it's a free service, but if it gets bad I may have to switch providers.

Hope not.
CF is easy to use for a commenteer.

Yeah, Comic Fury is good for us commenteers !

I'd say ride it out for now and see how it goes, after all it's only been a day or two so far.

The DDOS attack was on CF's main provider, all the way in Virginia:

The site claimed it was resolved, but CF's still laggy. Kyo said he's sent in another ticket saying the problem's not resolved for us. I think it should be fixed within the next couple of days at most, no need to worry about changing providers. ^^

Good to know.

Not sure why anyone would DDOS a comic host. Someone has waaaaaay too much time on their hands.

As far as I can tell it's not specifically CF that's being DDoSed but the host the site uses. So multiple sites hosted through DreamHost were taken down because of it. Though I'm wondering about the reason too...

Or some dude who thinks he got fired for no reason, but probably deserved it.
Or a women who bought some defective shoes.

It could be anything!

Good to have the site back! And aw, medical issues suck. Everyone should be able to go into space...

'Medical reasons'? Now i'm curious. Are we going to find out about those later on?

Rereading a bit, and I JUST noticed now that Alis' text is red-tinged.

I thought that she was just speaking quietly, but...is her voice ragged, even before she tries to breathe poolwater?
