    Are we suffering attempted DDoS attacks.

    Yeah, sucky. I'll set it to the next level.

    Linux.org logo licensing

    Hey there @NayamAmarshe Thanks for the compliments on the logo! Unfortunately, we'd like it to remain something just for the website and not for linux in general at this time. Appreciate you asking before just using it though!

    Should we keep the Cloudflare DDoS protection enabled?

    I did some a little bit ago, but maybe 5 in total so far today?

    I'm thinking we're good now on this front? @Bartman if you aren't getting the 5 second thing, I don't believe cloudflare is part of your issue. Thoughts? I'll remove that notice at the top of the site now and keep an eye on this thread :)

    I changed it from "under attack!" to "medium". Let's see how that goes. Edit: @Bartman can you take note if you get the 'oops' at all the next day or so?

    Not sure - I have a weekly-ish thing from hrefs website that lets me know links gained/lost, so it should give me an idea. I don't believe it'd make a difference?

    Hmm, wonder if that's the cloudflare stuff causing it.

    Stream Music from Linux to Google Home

    Hey @Jarret B awesome article! I have a mix of minis, regular homes and a few nest hubs scattered around the house.. and some chromecast audios hooked into stereo things. I'll be giving this a try for sure.

    Should we keep the Cloudflare DDoS protection enabled?

    We get hammered quite a bit from bots that do take the site down for (normally) about 7-8 minutes. At least once/day. The other day it was pretty bad, so I enabled the DDoS protection from Cloudflare (Thanks Cloudflare free plan!!). Anyway, this introduces a 5ish second delay in loading the...

    Hey, not sure how I missed this thread .. yeah, we were getting hammered by bad traffic. The server can handle the normal load fine, but not when it's under attack :/ I enabled 'attack mode' in cloudflare - apologies for the extra browser check temporarily.
