Are we talkin' denial of service attack kind of traffic here, or "hey, fat people have a website? No WAI!" sudden overexposure on tv and the internets kind of traffic?

I'm thinking the latter.

The database came to a halt Thursday with what appeared to be excessive traffic. Closer examination revealed a possible intentional attack. After assessing the situation I rebuilt the files and there were some snags during that, like running out of disk space in one of the logical volumes while the system made backups of the huge forum database. I don't think anything was lost.
Thanks Conrad for all your work keeping the frums up and running. Your work is very much appreciated.
