OUTAGE: Data Center Problem Resolved.

There was a problem with our data center today, creating a site outage (server unreachable).

That problem has been resolved.

Basically, it seems to have been a socially engineered denial-of-service attack against UNIX.com; which I stopped as soon as I found out what the problem was.

Total down time was 30 minutes.

Thank you for your patience.

It turns out the outage was caused by a German data center company who have since apologized for their mistake.
