Digg worse than DOS attack

Digg.com must be the most powerful weapon in the universe (no exaggeration). Not only did it bring down the site, it burnt out the drive!
Working on resorting mysql databases (unicode problems), imagemagick compile, new php build etc etc

I know that many of you have landed here from digg – if you like all stuff japanese/life+photos from japan/anime/gundam/figures/mac stuff etc then check back soon when the server should be up n running.

For my current readers, thanks for being patient with me and I love ya all.

If you sent mail, resend it to me directly as the mail server is now up.

    Whoa, your site managed to bork my site XD
    My RSS feeds were acting up and for some reason the page wouldn’t load past the RSS code.

    I never thought your site would go down in a million years @_@;

    Good luck with the restoration process, it reminds me that I should keep a backup of my own site/database =/

  18. jjjlmx Says:

    It’s hard to see your site down, even i started to blame to my internet company before your web site of why i can’t enter.

    And welcome again to the wordpress.com comunity : D

  19. Ikkaku Says:

    omg Danny. I hope the site will be up soon. This is disaster!

  20. BeLe Says:

    Wish you all the best in getting your site back up. Digg.com = sux0rs. Too bad for all the lost data and the fried hdd. Do you have raid configured? If not, maybe it’s time to consider setting one up?

  21. GundamZZ Says:

  24. TinyRedMan Says:


    1 day no dannychoo.com = 1 day of boredom!!

  25. Kuu Says:

    Good luck in fixing the site ^^

  26. nbulat Says:

    I miss ur site!
    Take your time recovering everything, we can wait.
    Good luck!

  27. cyruzdraxs Says:

    It’s nice to see you’re still at it. I thought the site got hacked when I checked it last night only to find the Plesk help desk page. o.O

    Digg is like Slashdot…one of my friend’s sites got Slashdotted about a year ago and shot up from 0.9 GB bandwidth consumption to his max of 30 GB bandwidth consumption in just a few minutes. *_*

    On the note of your hard drive problems, I think that you should put together a data security RAID on your server. That way, if a drive fails, you still have another identical drive as a backup. I just bought a server for myself with a data security RAID and it only costed me $1000 for a Core 2 Quad (2.4Ghz) with 2GB DDR2-800 and 2 500GB Sata2 HDDs in a mirrored RAID.

    I’m thinking my next investment when my blog starts getting me some cash is a fiber optic card and a faster internet connection. ^_^

    Well, I hope you can get the site back the way it was without too much problem. Cheers, man. I love what I’ve seen of your blog so far. I Just found it a few days ago and everything I’ve read so far is nearly exactly how I think. You are like an older, more successful version of me–I’ll get there soon enough. Maybe in a few years I’ll be in Japan with you eating McDonalds in a Typhoon. lol.

  28. Hatix Says:

    gambatte, Danny!
    Good luck fixing the site.
    Compiling all that stuff can be a drag, I know all about it…

    Hope to see the site back soon!

  29. Mifune Says:

    May the force be with you danny-san 😉

  30. krapou Says:

    T-T………good luck Danny.
    We’re behind you.

  31. AS Says:

    Good luck to you Danny, hope your site goes back on soon…it will make otaku around the world happy, including myself ^-^.

  32. Eric R. Says:

    Nao! This was one of my favorite places to stop by on a regular basis.

    I feel as if my day is not complete! Gangan danbo-san!

  33. elyte Says:

    mm… this always makes me wonder… what the life after dannychoo would be like…

  34. Edward Says:

    Came here the other day when I realized your site was down and seen “main server dead” and thought Oh @#!%. Was going to send you mail -something I refrain from doing because I know your mailbox is always full just like your schedule- but thought Oh @#!%, mail server will be down too.

    Oh what a mess… I wish I could give you some help Danny. I know you feel the urgent need to get things back in order. It would be the same with me. We love ya too, not going to run out on you.

    Starting to think it’s an insult to get digged. Hope you can get some of that 3 day data loss back.

    Good example for everyone. Any site can go down, so make sure you back up. Luckily for us and Danny, he does backup.

  35. Pipi Says:

    Hang in there!

  36. moyism Says:

    Whoa, sucks to hear Danny. As others have already mentioned, I hope for your best and take whatever time you need to get your site back up and running at 100%.

  37. BaZhAnG Says:

    go go danny!

  38. cease Says:

    : ( Not good , but hey Danny im sure your site will be back soon enough and better than ever!
    Good things come to those who wait ill def be waiting , love the site
    take it easy

  39. Mad N1nja Says:

    I will wait for your return!

    Hope that will be soon.

    I wish you luck.

    But just remember: “Don’t worry, be happy”

  40. Gorgo Says:

    How is it going Danny?
    all ok?

  41. Demacrez Says:

    Gambatte-oh Danny-san! We’re all with you! And please, take your time with the site. Don’t rush because us rabbid fans want to find out the next eroge game/doujin will come out. ^^;

    Good luck Danny, and I can’t wait for the next update.

  42. Setsuna-san Says:
