Default Updates on traffic/errors...

So if you've been here for the last three days you've probably noticed some sporadic performance...apologies for that.

I'm continuing to monitor it (and please continue emailing me if you run into problems), but it seems like the cause was that Baidu (search engine) has been indexing the wiki and forums with a crazy amount of robotic power. Meaning 6-8 requests per second, from ~30 different IPs, of different complex wiki pages that bring the database server to it's knees.

I am now blocking their IPs, we'll see if it holds.

Grrrrrrrrrr.
