    I only tweet occasionally, but I did notice Facebook was not working right this morning. I still can't load some links from Facebook.

    Some one notify the "O".. so his internet czar can fix this situation.

    Not much anyone can do in the midst of an attack like this. We can't mandate Norton Anti-Virus for everyone.

    From what I'm hearing from friends in the tech sector most of the computers being used are from outside of the US. Its a pretty massive attack.

    Well it would certainly slow everyone's computer down to a 386 model and thus create the need for more streamline programming...:D
