Six Apart DDOS

I thought Livejournal being tricky last night was down to my internet connection, but no, according to Livejournal Status, Six Apart (the company that now owns LJ) was hit by a "sophisticated Distributed Denial of Service attack". Everything seems to be running OK now, but how thrilling. We need more malicious attempts at ruining large traffic sites - keeps things regular, you know? Nothing worse than utopia.
