Well, normally DDoS attacks would be mitigated at the colo level by someone
like Cloudflare, who would redirect traffic off to a scrubber. And that should
be the end of things. But it seems pretty obvious that runrev has gone with
the lowest-cost option instead and is having to deal on their own with
things like attacks, backups, etc.

OTOH, maybe we've hit the bigtime if someone thinks we're worthy
of that level of attack. Go team!
