Deferred Posting

I presume that with all the uping and downing of servers that the deferred function has been disabled for the time being. In case it just got missed in the moving and twisting of metal things, here's a note that it isn't working at the moment.

And if there is time to play with it, any idea if deferred pinging might be a possibility in the future?

Thanks again.

NOTE: Sorry abouts sounding callous about the DOS -- I only just now found out about it as I haven't been online -- and my blog and this one appear to be working just fine, so I guess the DOS is over? If not, please send me the home address of the source of the DOS so I can mail them...something...

The DoS attack is quiet for now.

Deferred posting should be working at the moment. It didn't work for the two days that the blogs were hiding on the other server, because the appropriate scripts and crontab entries hadn't been set up.

The DoS attack is coming from Romania, Latvia, Austria, Korea, and the Netherlands. And other places, but those were the main ones. I've firewalled them off, and we seem to be okay for the moment.

The other casualty of all this has been my email - which is hosted on the munu servers. So if you tried to contact me and it bounced, or I just didn't get back to you, that's why.

Hmmm...The deferred post for 15:00 (server time) didn't post, neither did the 17:00 post. I've got another ready and deferred for 19:00...is the server time changed from what it was before the crashes?

Damn Latvians.

Can you make sure that deferred posting is turned on for my blog too.

Deferred posting is all working fine now. Deferred posts don't ping or trackback, but I'll bring that up again when the building isn't burning down...
