If you have been encoutering problems connecting to certain websites or other places on the internet, don't think its you, there is a valid reason for this slowdown. The American Intelligence is monitoring massive Distributed Denial of Service attacks all over the U.S. tonight starting at around 11:30 PM CST. As many as 5 of the 13 root nameserver have been down, up to 10 with massive packet loss as well as all backbone providers are suffering major packet loss. It seems to be affecting udp port 1434, some kind of worm exploiting mysql server. It may or may not be a DoS attack. Its messing everything up, good thing its the middle of the night.
