We were packet flooded this morning at about 2AM Pacific Time, and as a result I had to null route irc.eskimo.com. So this server will be unavailable to everyone on the Internet until such time as I remove the null route. You can thank the asshole that's packet flooding us. I operate this server as a free service, and if people can't refrain from abusing it then I will have to make it unavailable to everybody. Any information with respect to who is originating these floods would be appreciated.
