Strange times at ye old blog.
About an hour ago I noticed that we had a huge number of hits today. Over 7,000, which would make it our biggest day ever. At first I hoped we’d finally gotten that Instapundit link. But no, nothing that exciting.
One website (IP 188.8.131.52) is hitting our front page about 75 times a minute. It appears to originate in the San Jose area, so it could be web service or search engine related, but I sort of doubt it. It’s actually like a slo-mo DDoS attack. Maybe the Calvinist hackers have finally caught up with me!
I called our host and asked what they thought. So long as it’s not actually having any performance effect on the site, they recommend ignoring it. So, on the plus side our stats look great this week. On the downside, it’s just annoying. If someone out there is trying to bring the site down because of something we said…you’ll have to try harder. Until then…
Shoo fly, don’t bother me.
