For the last twelve hours, my internet connection has been up and down like… erm… well, like something that goes up and down very rapidly. Some muppet on Westnet in Western Australia managed to make themselves the target of a DDoS attack, and this has made Westnet’s whole Australian network a bit twitchy. This may also have affected connectivity to Thinkshiny. We apologise for the inconvenience. Update: It turns out that it was a router firmware bug that seems to have affected quite a lot of Westnet’s eastern-states network, and not entirely caused by the aforementioned muppet. On a very tangentially related note, Fraggle Rock has just been released on DVD!
