Who remembers the time the directory permissions were borked and the config file was publicly readable?

Also who remembers the times this site got hacked?

Happened to a site my employers managed. Let it slip and the next day it was owned by someone in China. No way to reclaim.

Yep, that could happen too. I'm think of buying it and putting up a chinchilla porn site.

As soon as I saw it, I knew what happened - it's an annual charge that gets overlooked every year.

Fucking hilarious stuff.

One of these years they'll forget for long enough that it goes on market and someone will buy it. Cyber-squatters would love to own it.

And back down for the past six hours or so - server can't be accessed.

You might get some new blood here if this keeps up.

CenturyLink broke the internet the day before yesterday so there are still lingering outages all over.

Server in Sweden, Comcast shouldn't have had any affect at all.

There's been a huge wave of DDoS attacks all over the internet, so it could be tied up in that.

Not that it really matters and no one gives a fuck but Bidlack did Hamilton before Hamilton was cool
... The stars were suns, but so far away they were just little points of light ... The scale of the universe suddenly opened up to me. It was a kind of religious experience. There was a magnificence to it, a grandeur, a scale which has never left me. Never ever left me.
