Why can't people just play nice?

I don't know who on my system pissed someone off, but we keep getting packet fragmentation attacks. It's messing up things, and I have not had a chance to finish doing the upgrade to FreeBSD 4.4 current cvsup, to patch the fragmentation bug, before something goes bad again due to the attack. And I can't just unplug it from the net because it's remotely hosted and I wouldn't be able to finish the upgrade.

This is really frustrating, because it means I have to wait for my host to get home and reboot the machine. Then make another try at upgrading it and pray I can get it done before things break again. The system - including e-mail et al - has been down for the better part of a day now, and there is absolutely nothing I can do about it until Max gets home and reboots it. Grrragh!

It's driving me nuts. I hate that people act this way... it's immature, like pissing on someone's car. Grr!


Eh... even if it is them, it is not your fault.

At any rate, I've got the machine upgraded, I've installed a bunch of security fixes, I've reconfigured the kernel and a bunch of other stuff. So it should be smooth sailing from here on out.
