    I wonder if the attack on the computer servers affected our power grid fluctuation yesterday. The lights, were dimming and for a moment I thought that my computer was going to shut down. I quickly saved what was on the screen and waited until the unusual brown-out was over. :(

    My Explorer seemed to be real slow the past couple of days. (cable modem) Purged my cache & it didn't help. Maybe this was the problem????

    Yep, probably was.

    Flickering lights? Probably not.

    Crippled nine of the thirteen? I find that hard to believe, since no one seems to be complaining about loss of internet service yesterday....

    I find it very hard to believe too... I had absolutely no problems. Usually I have major slowdowns during attacks.

    I wonder if it is false information designed to draw these attackers out?

    Hey, I've been having some major problems on our computer this last week or so.

    My e-mail program couldn't read the type that things were sent in.

    My computer is getting a message that there isn't enough memory to use "Shockwave" and there is more than enough.

    And just today, my "Favorites" were deleted...Had to go to "History" to get the Baptist Board Address......

    Weird! [​IMG]
