I don't imagine anyone actually cares about my web page at notcharles.ca, since all that's there are a few old reviews and stuff, but I might as well announce that it's going away. Somebody is DDOS'ing my web server, and this isn't something I feel I need to deal with.
(Well, no, not really. It's just your bog-standard pathetic buffer overrun attempt that's been showing up in my logs since forever - this one's 32805 characters long - except now one comes in every couple of minutes instead of every couple of days. It's been doing that since the end of March, but a few days ago it ramped up and today my old Celeron finally ran out of memory and fell over. Weakest DOS ever.)
This means Broomstick at bloody-disgusting.com is going to have to start leeching his user icon from somewhere else. Sorry, Broomstick. You might try http://www.monkeydyne.com/rmcs/, which is where I got that pic from in the first place, but they're more vengeful than I am and I'm almost certain they have a no-leeching policy.
I suspect there's something else going on, since Apache was going absolutely nuts with the spawning and reaping of processes - far more than a piddly "URI too long" error every couple of minutes should account for. But I don't really care what was wrong with it - shutting it off is the easiest way to deal with this.
Unfortunately, one friend of mine was also hosting a roleplaying wiki there, so shutting it down isn't a very nice thing to do to him. Hope he can find somewhere else to host it.
