Sorry about making a thread but it's bugging me why I can't connect to Slacked.

Any solutions?

If it could be a DNS problem, I use OpenDNS so that might be tricky to undo.

* by tricky to undo, i mean i can't change my DNS easily...

I can't connect either, so I'm guessing it's actually down. Shadow can kiss his pristine downtime records goodbye, I guess.

<shadow> Hello.
<shadow> We wanted to inform you that we are currently under another DDOS attack. It seems the person responsible is targetting
<shadow> DNS providers as some of our competitors are also down.

shadow's done nothing but put in work for this site. he is one hard-working motherfucker and stays upbeat despite all the people who wanna fuck with him for some reason. saying passive-aggressive things like this because your god-given right to lurk on IRC is temporarily absent just makes you seem like a jerk -- especially when it turns out it's an external problem the guy had no control over!

I never intended to sound like a jerk. I said that as an aside, sort of mourning the fact that I had finally encountered downtime on slacked. I know that shadow puts a lot of work into these sites, and I really do like him (he's too cute not to like). I didn't intend it to sound like I was putting down shadow. Besides, unless the servers were actually in shadow's basement or something (And I know they aren't), then downtime is never his fault, but would instead be the fault of his host (Dreamhost, I believe), or, in this case, some irritated script kiddie who decided to DDOS the DNS.
