    I think your tiff was something different and eventually got papered over because things were back to normal shortly after that.

    This supposed DDoS seemed to follow on the heels of the much-publicized nvidia.com forums breach.

      Hello,
      I'm trying to access the official Linux support forum linked in http://nvidia.custhelp.com/app/answe...id/44/kw/linux yet I'm told that it's a private forum.

      Is nVidia going to provide a public forum too?

      Thank You!
      with honey...

      Anyway MikeCs' posts are straaaaange:
      A Message From Obama - 7/18/12 @ 2:27 am - By: MikeC - Source: Me
      Hello, nV News remains under a brute-force Distributed Denial of Service Attack.
      More importantly I wanted to let all of our visitors know that President Obama is so in love with you.
      Let's rebuild America together.
      Vote for Obama.
      Thanks for the support.
      This message has been approved by MikeC.
      Regards, MikeC

      About Situational Awareness - 7/19/12 @ 3:15 am - By: MikeC - Source: Me
      This country would be much "safer" if our children were taught about situational awareness.
      Situational awareness can be applied to numerous events that affect our daily lives.

      It's also an excellent tool to weed out spammers that plague the Internet.

      President Obama makes sure that his best combat soldiers are experts in situational awareness.

      Your local police force are also experts in situational awareness.

      Please click the headline to become aware of situations that affect your daily life.

          Michael,

          Prepare yourself for an influx of mouth breathing trolls in search of a new bridge.

              Hello,

              We're very sorry for the inconvenience that this is causing. We're currently working on putting up our own UNIX support forums and retrieving the data from the now-disabled NvNews UNIX forums. As you know, we're also currently having forum issues of our own so the timing is a little unfortunate, but we hope to be able to provide a new set of official support forums soon.

              In the meantime and until this is resolved, please send your feedback and bug reports to linux-bugs@nvidia.com. I will update this topic as soon as there is news.

              Again, sorry for the inconvenience. We really value your participation and I hope to see you on the new forums as soon as they're up.

              Thanks,
              - Pierre-Loup Griffais
