    Apparently Anon is taking personal blame for the outtage saying they did it. There's some Twitter screenshots floating around.

    I've heard that they wanted to test the infrastructure of their security. I wonder what commercial they'll come out with with Danica Patrick to reverse this one.

    One of my client's called me in a panic this afternoon because his email wouldn't work, so I did a U-turn and was at his office in about 15 minutes. Took me about 5 minutes to figure out his GoDaddy email wasn't working. His whole day was screwed. PI lawyer on a Monday morning.

    With GoDaddy's support for SOPA in mind, I took the opportunity to let him know that it's a bad idea to have your professional emails dependent on one particular webhosting service. He would be better moving to GMail, and besides that there were better webhosting services than GoDaddy.

    That's punishment for SOPA, GoDaddy. I never miss an opportunity to discourage people from using your shitty service. And tell that bitch Danica to get in the kitchen and make me a sammich, and brings me a beer.
