PDRoms reachability II (misc)

Dear visitors,

The attack is gone (for now), the page seems stable.

The past days were really a pain in many ways and related to this I also had a financial loss. Considering PDRoms generates no money, but costs money – plus this extra loss – I am far from amused and was very close to drop all this stuff.

Whatever we tried to do, the attacks continued. On this way here I would like to thank Evildragon, chrissie and celeth for helping out. Unfortunately the attack was extremely massive, that even the guys at the server farm were unable to help.

I am not quite sure if I will continue to maintain and even run PDRoms or just keep it like this and let it disappear before the next server bill arrives.

PDRoms reachability (misc)

Dear visitors,

PDRoms is beeing DDOS’ed and there is nothing we can do about this. We have to wait and see when the attacks disappears on it’s own.

The loading time is incredibly high, but you should be able to get something displayed.

Regards
Kojote & Team

Server overload (misc)

Major french webpages are currently linking to PDRoms. This started at about 10:20am. The server was not able to handle the requests.

EvilDragon of OpenPandora fame ( http://openpandora.org/ ) gave us a helping hand to sort things out. Everything should at least run a lot better than before!

Happy browsing :)

News Plagitarism (misc)

Our scene friends at Nintendomax wrote a few words about news plagitarism in the homebrew scene. Use a translator of your choice and go over it. The original french article is linked.

After the initial step of PDRoms to route our visitors to one of our very own “special” friends, as sign of silent protest, someone could say that most of the other sites covering homebrew should be entering a state of changing and understanding, sadly this isn’t the fact.

If you spend hours and hours looking for news manually or even with automized tools, which still require you to feed it with data, the least you can expect is a proper crediting as a small thank you.

Most scene pages don’t earn a single dollar and their staff works for free to bring you an appropriate service.

As people would say in a webboard: “Don’t feed the trolls!” – So go on, make your own opinion and decide your steps. We are not telling you to do anything, it must be really a decision of your heart.

Another way of protest (misc)

If _they_ steal your news, why not giving them your traffic too? Honor is a matter of respect, but many people in the homebrew scene lack of it.

No more to say!
