so here's what's gone down:
1. wes calls me on the way home from a job interview (long story, laid off last week), they shut us down for too much resource usage, i need a drink, a tall drink
2. i reviewed the logs on the server and found that it was was due to a denial of service attack and update the support ticket with all of the information needed to block the domain name that had instigated the attack (the dos attacks were coming from a domain, not ip's)
3. I called tech support after they ignored my response to their help ticket, telling them all of the same things over they phone. at that time they said they would block the ip addresses for me and turn on the site.
4. last night, when i saw that the site was STILL down, i logged into the control panel and saw that they now wanted the IP of the domain
5. I lost any grip i still had on sanity. it takes one frickin' second to ping a domain name to get an IP?!?! where's the Makers Mark?!
6. I logged in and posted the IP instead of the domain name of the server to the control panel. anything else i can do for you guys, how about i wash your car or mow your lawn while you figure out your firewall system?
7. this morning i login and see that, whadday know, the site is STILL down, so i logged into the control panel again and see that now they don't want to block the IP with their super (sh!tty) firewall, they want me to write a script to do it manually.
8. I am now boarderline insane/unibomber
9. I write a quick script to block given IP's blockip.php and load it on the server. I also found a cool load management tool for vbulletin, but can't install it until the site is up.
10. Call my ol' pal Mike at tech support again and let him know what's up. he tells me there is a guy working on this right now, as we speak and promises to call me here at the house if he runs into anymore issues instead of sending me more cryptic messages by donkey and to let me know when the site is back up.
11. It's now 10:10am, no word yet, fingers crossed...... gotta go get ready for another interview.
...never heard a word from those guys all day, tried calling all evening got the recorder. talked to wes, so he started trying to and finally got through to them and they turned on the site. we're installing all kinds of crazy scripts now, so let us know if you see anything funky.
