Guys, you know I’m clueless in most computerish things, that’s why I use Linux. And I’m not inworld very often anymore, that’s why I was ignorant of the mass logouts and the DDoS attack on LL’s servers. Having had enough personal problems as it was, trying to transfer my whole machine park over to the new Namib GNU/Linux OS.
But I feel it’s kinda my duty as an SL bloggerista, to inform you that those attacks indeed did happen. Why SL, the cuddly little virtual puppet house playground? Why can’t they attack White House, GOP, CIA or NSA servers? It would be a public service, better for the planet, help world peace and really target the bad guys.
Anyway, if you don’t need Orca’s ultraleft, anti-American propaganda but real information, please check out Inara Pey’s (who else?) Modemworld blog and Ayesha’s Ramblings. Or Daniel Wolfsong, who reports from a first hand perspective.
Here’s hoping you, your hairs and your makeup escaped the attacks unharmed. Let us know of your personal horror story … below here in the comment section.
