SBNet Users: What the hell?

I've had a lot of traffic to my sites lately, but recently took the fucking cake. There was such a spike in traffic that Dreamhost warned me that there was what they believed to be a DDoS on our account, and had to temporarily (and quickly; my understanding is that this was less than five minutes) take down sites on my account to see what was going on.

It turns out there was a huge spike in traffic on seigane.net - Cammy, that's your site - that made it look like a DDoS. It all seemed to be coming from one American IP that I haven't been able to trace too much yet, according to my logs, but I want to know what's going on before I mandate having to add an .htaccess to that site.

I apologise for any inconvenience to those with SBNet sites, and Cammy, do you have any clue what happened?

I'll be watching the logs from when this goes live VERY closely, to see what's going on and if I need to help Cammy invest in a dedicated server.

I went back to this entry to read something, and I saw this.

Yeah, there are going to be people like me. Probably quite a few. You're going to have refreshing out the ass, so your traffic's going to spike like you wouldn't believe.

That said, expect to help her out with a dedi. I told her I'd probably donate like 50 bucks, myself.
