    Brol

    BROL seems to be down. Or at least, I can't get to it. Are others having the same problem?

    Yep.

    Maybe we should ask for a sticky "Is BROL Down?" thread?

    Likewise. Does Bryan ever come here to calm us BROL addicts?

    Sort of like (spoken in an unflappable airline pilot voice):

    "Folks, this is your Captain speaking, we are experiencing a routine emergency. Nothing to be concerned about..."
    Try to do something now that will make a difference one million years from now.

    Bryan used to stop by when BROL was down, just to let us know what was going on. But that didn't work out so well since he had a stalker on this site.

    From BROL on Facebook (as transcribed by me):

    We apologize profusely for the extended downtime. No one is more angry than we are. We've been the victim of several cyber attacks over the last year and we're trying to make sure it gets fixed right and doesn't happen again.

    The web server is alive (but not yet serving what we'd except). Good sign.

    Whoever host his web server sure seems prone to DOS attacks.

    I suspected that, since I couldn't get in from work; but the infrastructure guys have been playing with settings. Good to know it's not them.
