Don't look at me

I received this in my email today:
Urgent Notice: DDoS Attack 

Dear Members,
SFWA.org has been experiencing a DDoS attack since approximately 10am EST this morning. Our webstaff has been working to restore the site. Please be patient while they continue their efforts. Members may have difficulty accessing the main sfwa.org site and the content within. The forums at sfwa.org/forum are also experiencing intermittent outages as well.
This event prompted an amount of speculation that the DDoS attack might possibly be related to certain differences of opinion between the current and future presidents of the SFWAAs it happens, I had nothing whatsoever to do with it, (I was not even aware of it until after it had already been resolved), and neither did the Dread Ilk.  The reason, of course, is that it is the easiest thing in the world to determine if the Dread Ilk were involved in something within 24 hours of an event taking place.
  1. Were firearms involved? 
  2. Was the caliber larger than 9mm?
  3. Is the body count in excess of 20? 
  4. Are the fires still burning?
If the answer to all of these questions is no, you can be absolutely certain that the party responsible was not a regular reader of this blog.

Why would anyone want to do that?

The only explanation I can think of is that the Lagomorphs, being too frightened to enter the Lion's Den, have convinced themselves that this will somehow get back at you, Vox.

Well, it's not as self-defeating as Gamma Bunny, I guess.

Anonymous Daniel February 07, 2013 6:16 PM  

I admire your confidence, but don't think you'll win.

You aren't thinking this through, Giraffe. It is a numbers game. There are 2000 members of the SFWA. Scalzi won last time with 200 votes or something. That means that voter turnout (for the winner, at least) at a member organization is 10%.

That means one thing: total apathy and a miniscule "in-crowd" looting the cupboards. Vox simply has to appeal to 200 disaffected members who haven't had the motivation to let a once-proud organization go.

200. Also, I know Vox threw his hat in the ring to play around, but have you noticed something? When Vox plays a game, he likes to win.

I'm going to guess it is a hell of a lot more uncertain than it would first appear.

On another topic (still related to OP) C-4 is not a firearm.

I don't really think it was an attack.

I got called the first day of CES because xi3.com was being attacked. Turns out that Valve made an announcement the day before and we were getting 300 hits per second from people trying to see what it was about. Took three days for the ISP to get in and increase our bandwidth so it would work again.

I think hoppy-boy generated enough traffic to lock people out. He should have to pay for it.

Blogger Giraffe February 07, 2013 6:31 PM  

Since we are discussing rabbit hunting.

If you want to save the meat, a .22 LR is the way to go. Head shots don't spoil any meat and often result in some entertaining acrobatics due to an interrupted nervous system.

If you are out for destruction, I recommend .22-250. These fast movers will leave a baseball sized hole and instant kills.

If you are looking for the red mist with critters this big, go with something like a .243, .25-06, or so. This is a whole 'nother level of destruction. With my 7mm and 110 grain hollow points you get pretty good hang time and guts high in the shrubbery.

@AlteredFate and @daddynichol and Et Ilk,

It's not dollars but stuffing the voting box ... just a little mis-direction being employed.

Its thumping something because I think the creature/caricature is properly called a Rappit.

Correct me if you must, but I don't think it should be confused with a furry gentle & innocent animal that inhabits many parts of our planet.

I suspect that it is more akin to a shiny enticement or brightly colored candy shown through the open door of an invitation into the dark interior of a van or car.

Consequently, I think it is called a Rappit and it is neither gentle or innocent.

And whatever it thumps with isn't likely to be a foot.

It's a decent price, but the owner said he hasnt had much luck moving them, which gave me pause.

Looks pretty interesting. 30-30 though not .308. Don't know how hard that caliber is to come across these days. They should have done a true quad-rail on the thing and free-floated the barrel and tube. Would be better cut down and sold as a pistol.

Blogger El Borak February 07, 2013 8:09 PM  

VD: Was the caliber larger than 9mm?

Please change to >= 9mm. While smugly suffering the giggles of the more opinionated, plenty of the ilk are satisfied with the 9mm and consider larger calibers merely showing off when it comes to sound, and an admission of a lack of restraint when it comes to anything else.

QED. There are those who can kill with a fountain pen or a set of tweezers, for whom self-defense is a matter of art as much as force. Then there are those who need arsenic, C4, or nukes to get the same simple job done. Humiliation is in the mind of the survivor, I suppose. Which is why it neither concerns nor affects me in the least. But I am honored that Nate mentioned me by name. Check off a bucket list item that seemed impossible not so long ago.

My wife just turned 72(don't tell anybody) and her grip is definately not what it used to be. She won't touch my .357, has trouble now with the small grip on her snub-nosed .38, and can no longer rack the 9mm.

So, I got her a little Walthers P22, 10 round clip. It's easy for her to rack, has a safety(which she really likes.)This has become her favorite CC gun, small, light, easy for her to shoot. Bonus is we already have thousands of .22LR around the place for her to plink with, and the ammo is dirt cheap.

Not much of a weapon to stop somebody hopped up on something, but just pulling out a weapon changes the dymanics of almost any situation.

Loaded up with .22 hollow points will let it do some notable damage.

Caliber wars again.

The bigger, more powerful round doesn't do much good if it doesn't hit anything. For all the talk you hear of shooting one inch groups and such, my own experience at the range is that most people there are lucky just to hit anything. I generally shoot a bull barrel Ruger MkIII 22/45 offhand at 25 yards. I'm no great marksman, and my eyes aren't what they used to be, but I can usually get about nine of the ten rounds in a eight inch circle.

While my son is shooting, sometimes I will walk behind the other booths to see how they're doing, and it is appalling At seven yards, most of these folks seem to have trouble just hitting the target at all, and the bigger the round, seemingly the worse the results. These aren't old ladies, or accountants with their first firearm, but by and large, pickup truck good old boys.

For all the talk of "stopping power", I doubt if anyone here would be willing to catch ten rapid fired rounds of .22LR.

Blogger James Dixon February 08, 2013 9:46 AM

Why'd you have to pop up right on cue and say exactly what I'd said you'd say? You're making me look bad in front of all the rabbits who are reading the unreadable RSHD.

At least you seem to be having fun, so you're better off here rather than Scalzi's place. And for the record, I know you're a sockpuppet for somebody. Your style is too cartoonish for a real person.

[chuckle] You may be right. But if so, think about what he's doing to his own mind. Those who go undercover sometimes end up as one of the types they emulate. He'll start accidentally slipping PC language into discussions with his coworkers. He'll not be able to resist kneejerk antagonistic arguments with his buddies on things he used to agree with. He could get so into character that he never comes out.

The mind has it's own slippery slope. Pray that he makes it back safely.
