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!
