    I think I'm in. Servers are just overloaded. Keep trying guys, you can do it!

    And this, Ladies and Gentlemen, is a live presentation of a denial of service (DoS) attack, where computers around the world attempt to access the same resource at the same time, causing the servers to collapse! This company has been performing such tests roughly every two years, sadly they have so far been unsuccessful, comment: "We will not give up, we already have plans to distribute the load by letting the Horde log in one week in advance". Maybe next time, keep it up boys!

    Next up we have a so called hacker who is strangely fond of... kittens! A possible weakness? Stay tuned!
