Well that was nice. This site is on a shared server as dedicated ones are BFO expensive. And it works pretty well pretty well all of the time...

...until some fuckwit decided to make available a mahoosive media file to download ... and lo and behold they came, started downloading and immediately swamped the server's bandwidth which meant no connections to the db server could make it through. :headbang:


I disabled the offending file and laid down some smack on
the user.

Let's see how long they remain smacked...
