Twenty miles to the East, fires burn.
But here at perl.org headquarters, it's a slow day.
Not that we're not busy as usual, but today our primary webserver was running veeeeeeeeery veeeery slooooooooowww..
I think it's just one of those days.
- full partition makes database unhappy
- effective DDOS attack by people misusing the ntp pool. (No - you are NOT supposed to set your time via HTTP using our service.)
- (when I thought it was all done) someone in Australia tried to scrape a million messages off of the cpan-testers archive. All at once. (Blocked!)
But everything's back to fast and normal now.....
