Got this from the server owner at 9.45 tonight. Could explain the connection shenanigans.

Dear Valued Customer

We need to carry out an urgent network maintenance as we have been experiencing some issues with our DDOS mitigation device in Sydney.

The mitigation device is having hardware issues and NSFocus technicians are looking into it, but to avoid any further network issues we will be removing it from production.

They will be a small outage around 10.30pm.

Even though it sucks that this happens, I'm glad that you keep us all in the loop Cat, it makes it so much less frustrating than it would be otherwise.

This wasnt a DDOS attack but it was some of the DDOS protection gear on the server that was faulty. But if dicks didnt try DDOS attacks then this gear wouldnt be needed.
