    Dear reader:

    I have determined, within a statistical margin of 1.4 shadows of a doubt, that the attack on PS has been successfully repelled!

    Special thanks to chaos and Antar for their work in yelling at our server hosts to do ridiculously obvious things.

    Wait, who's chaos?

    Also: Now can we fix the problem where people can't join the chat or select a username?

    Pokemon Showdown is currently experiencing some issues with the log in server, in this time please do not keep trying to log in, it will not work at this point in time.

    I had the same problem as CrackinSkulls a lot yesterday; I'm just hoping that it doesn't happen again.

    "You have been disconnected - possibly because the server was restarted."

    Special thanks to Great Sage and Google for discovering the cause of our second-to-last outage, and additional thanks to our new hosting company for not being complete morons and helping us diagnose (and later block) the type of DDoS attack we were under.

    downforeveryoneorjustme.com is a beautiful thing.

    Btw, it's just PS that's down. Not the whole server. Doesn't look like we were DDoS'd again.
