DEADMAU5, "I DO SPORT THE DIRTYSMART! LOVE THE T'S"...
Before I tell you how excited I was by the twitter convo featured in the picture above, you need a bit of background knol...
A 'DDoS attack' is an attempt to make a resource unavailable to its intended users. One common method of attack, involves saturating a target with external communications requests, such that it cannot respond to the traffic.
deadmau5 is renowned for unintentional DDoS attacks. He has such a loyal hoarde of followers, as soon as he tweets a URL, the mentioned website crashes due to traffic.
Today i spotted a deadmau5 tweet:
‘ http://www.djmag.com/top100 LOL WHAT!!!???? voting fail = step one, open facebook, step 2, allow your personal FB... ’
I went to check out http://www.djmag.com/top100 and sure enough, the site had crashed!
I looked across the table and saw Dirty Smart's webmaster -Shaolin- arseing around, so cheekily tweeted...
' @deadmau5 fancy crashing our website? love www.dirtysmart.com x '
I wasn't expecting a reply... but one came a couple of minutes later!
' @dirtysmart nah, it does more harm than good... but! i do sport the dirtysmart! love the t's (nick gave me a few more in ibiza, love em) '
Is there an emotion that combines being speechless, shocked & elated?..
