    JANET is a provider of IP addresses. During the Dazya Wars of November 04 (before your time, I see) A, the new admin, blocked all JANET IP addresses to stop Dazya from launching any more attacks on the forum. As collateral damage I was also unable to access the site.

    I joined TSR over a year ago. There was a disgruntled chap with a smidgen of technical skill who decided it would be fun to attack the TSR server with DDoS attacks (which is a dead simple way to take down websites that can't afford lots of security). To get rid of him, A, the admin (is he still here?) blocked everyone whose internet connection looked remotely like his, and that meant that I was blocked - I couldn't access the site.

    So I come back here today, two days before my PC goes home to London and I go the other way with a tent, and find that I can access the site again.. very wierd for me.

    The extra 'd' is for 'distributed'. I think it's where you set up programs on other servers to also DoS at the same time, so the attack is combined. I'm no expert though.
