Pasted from an IM converation with Beau earlier today:
B says: I just had a thought, do you think our server is slow because of http port forwarding on the router?
B says: It could be hackers
M says: Oh no!
B says: I’ll write a gui interface in VB to track the IP address
M says: And start pinging the server to freeze the process!
B says: I’m in!
B says: I think I’ve done it. I closed the port and trapped them inside the firewall
B says: I can hear them banging against it
M says: We got them!
See, IT really is as dramatic as an episode from 24.
