It seems as though many conservative websites may be under a DOS attack right now. I can't get to glennbeck.com, foxnews.com, washingtonexaminer.com and theblaze.com loads really, really slow. I could get to google news, msnbc.com, cnn.com and others with no problem whatsoever.

No, but there are hundreds of classic autos down here. It's Cruisin' the Coast week and there are a lot of bad ass rides everywhere. This coming weekend is going to be crazy when hundreds turn into several thousand.

DDoS by the way. DOS is just one person in his basement with a couple spare computers attacking a site, DDoS is what would be needed to take down all of those sites.

It's my ISP. I couldn't connect from my phone via Wi-Fi, but when I turned it off, I was able to connect no problem via 3G.

Hmm. Your personal favorite websites? My first suspect would be the wife.

Then how come I could get to RedTube then? It was my ISP and everything was fine the next day.
