All of a sudden I'm getting a bunch of random and repeated "Site Busy" messages. Doesn't matter what I click on, it's hit or miss. I'm at work, but I'll see if I can get a screenshot.

By that do you mean that somebody is targeting the website, or it's something harmless? And is it a regular occurrence? :huh:

They were targeting us, but it was harmless, wasn't even a DDoS, just a single host. It's not really regular, hasn't happened now for a good few months, but we do get it from time to time
