There's currently a massive DDOS attack on the east coast that is affecting the internet as a whole.

Hi HMC1950 and Christine,  What link are you referring to? Is the DDoS Attacks Link or Get Satisfaction link?  I have able to access both of them.

This is the bad link

It puts you into an endless sign in loop. When you sign in , it says that you have signed in correctly and then returns you to the sign in page so you can go through the whole thing again and again and again.

That's a link to the GetSatisfaction Manage Workspace application (used to manage the community)... only accessible by moderators.

Looks like it should have been:

Was not getting the link you had Old Labs. Just the other one no matter what I tried. But after shut everything down for the rest of the day next day was okay.
