    Default Pardon the Interruption

    For whatever reason, TrackHQ.com got "attacked" last night about 6 p.m. by multiple IP addresses making hundreds of requests simultaneously, overwhelming its capacity, so the site was down for about an hour or so.

    Please pardon the interruption. We're taking steps to prevent it from happening again.

    Did you get any extortion e-mails threatening an attack or is TrackHQ cutting in on the traffic and Google so they are now retaliating?
    To the right of The Sheriff. Isn't everyone?

    No threats of extortion nor retaliation from Google. At least, I don't think so.

    I was just joking about Google, but I am sure TrackHQ is now beating the traffic at Yahoo! and Bing.
