It must be a bad day to be in the hosting business…

Dreamhost – “Due to a typing error on our primary router while trying to block a denial of service attack, DreamHost is currently offline.” Out of band access anyone?

Nearly Free Speech – It will probably have changed shortly but right now it reads “Our master MySQL server has blown more drives, and this is causing most aspects of our service to stall. We are replacing the entire server as quickly as possible”. Ouch. Edit: Have to say I’m impressed with the information flow provided. Almost hourly updates until the situation was brought under control.
