What's up with Distrowatch


Does anyone know what's up with DistroWatch? I haven't been able to get on their site for a few days now. Here's the link to their site http://distrowatch.com

A DoS attack by Impi fans?

Some of you might have noticed a severe slow-down of the DistroWatch.com server over the weekend. This was due to a Denial of Service (DoS) attack, presumably by fans of Impi Linux who were attempting to retrieve the Impi Linux page at a rate of about 10 requests per second. The attacks were coming from the following IP addresses, all located in South Africa:

209.212.102.245 - garm.mip.co.za
209.212.106.45 - gateway.mip.co.za
209.212.106.46 - revolution.co.za

the mirrors seem to be working, so just search on google for distrowatch and you'll get a list of mirrors.
