Long DescriptionThis second volume of collected and expanded posts from the popular blog TARDIS Eruditorum offers a critical history of the Patrick Troughton era of Doctor Who. Steadily tracking the developing story of Doctor Who from its beginning to the present day, TARDIS Eruditorum pushes beyond received fan wisdom and dogma to understand the story of Doctor Who as the story of an entire line of mystical, avant-garde, and radical culture in Great Britain: a show that is genuinely about everything that has ever happened, and everything that ever will. This volume focuses on Doctor Who’s intersection with psychedelic Britain and with the radical leftist counterculture of the late 1960s, exploring its connections with James Bond, social realism, dropping acid, and overthrowing the government. Along, of course, with scads of monsters, the introduction of UNIT, and the Land of Fiction itself. Every essay on the Troughton era has been revised and expanded, along with eight brand new essays written exclusively for this collected edition, including a thorough look at UNIT dating, an exploration of just what was lost in the wiping of the missing episodes, and a look at Stephen Baxter’s The Wheel of Ice. On top of that, you’ll discover: Whether The Mind Robber implies an alternate origin for the Doctor in which he is not a Time Lord but a lord of something else entirely. How The Evil of the Daleks reveals the secrets of alchemy. What can be seen on a walking tour of London’s alien invasions.

We are not hosted at GoDaddy, but we are registered there and have our DSN settings stored with them. So when Anonymous attacked GoDaddy, we were impacted too.

It is very sad that hackers don't think about all of the people that will be impacted by their actions. Even though we were not attacked directly, we were impacted and most of our users were also impacted.

Our site was up and running the entire time and because many DNS servers cache the address to our site, we had a steady flow of traffic during the attack. But the number of visiters to the site was clearly lower than normal. We had a significant drop in visitors and even after things were fixed by GoDaddy things weren't quite normal again until quite late in the evening.

If you or your applications were impacted by this attack we are deeply sorry but there was nothing that we could do to prevent or recover from this. Just like you, all we could do is wait for GoDaddy to deal with the situation.

Here are some news links you can read relating to the attack:

Update 9/13/2012 - It appears that this may not have been an attack after all. GoDaddy is saying that this was not an attack but a configuration error that cascaded through their routers taking their services off line for about six hours. Be it an attack or an accidental configuration issue makes no real difference to the end users that couldn't gain access to the web sites hosted on or registered with GoDaddy.

From GoDaddy:

Although this was all very annoying, no personal information seems to have been accessed such as passwords, credit card numbers, addresses, phone numbers or alike. Personally, being a technical person, I feel GoDaddy handled this situation quite well. I am not happy that it happened or that our users were unable to get to the site. But the tech team at GoDaddy did a very good job at correcting the problems.
