    Good Lord. Somebody certainly wants DFI out of action.

    pakis ancestors never attacked us because pakis ancestors were Indians.

    Saar half the time we don't even inform of the attacks because it's taken care by our defences. Only when we feel we might go down do we inform.

    Captcha is for spam. This is different.

    Don't think there's one sure shot method to stop ddos, and i'm sure dfi is doing a good job already cause site has been up for me through the day.
    I'm not too informed about it, but I believe that your solution lies in ipv6. Since ipsec is an integral part of ipv6, authentication of each packet is guaranteed. But no good news on the horizon for ipv6 enthusiasts. Last I heard, only a few isps in the States had started it, and as for India, Sibal introduced a document which gave '13 as a timeframe within which the state isp will switch to it. But as all of his ideas, this one, may be bunked too, though it actually was more beneficial than harmful

    DFI was down today? Nearly last 10 hours.

    First it said error 404. After that I can read it but looks like it was down.

    I could not access and got a message that there were too many 'redirects' and was advised to remove all cookies and other things!

    Even then it did not work!

    It is now that I could get DFI and I was not too sure if it would be feasible.

    Yusuf and Splikey,

    I used to think that you both were using the same Avatar.

    Now I see the difference since your posts are practically one after the other.

    Yusuf's Eagle is looking slightly Left, while Spikey's is looking straight. :pound:

    Sir, your sense of humour is matched by only very few in this forum. :laugh:
    Yes, mine is a Golden Eagle but I'm not sure if Yusuf Bhai has an Eagle or not, it looks more like a Hawk.

    That was not DDoS but planned maintenance. Unfortunately, browser cache issues led to long outage
