slashdot.org, sourceforget.net, freshmeat.net, and ohloh.net went down for 13 minutes and 30 seconds January 1st, 2010. Is this network maintenance? A DDoS attack? Was slashdot hacked?slashdot.org, sourceforget.net, freshmeat.net, and ohloh.net went down for 13 minutes and 30 seconds January 1st, 2010. Is this network maintenance? A DDoS attack? Was slashdot hacked?

I'm guessing because of the exact timing of the outage that it was planned maintenance. However, I haven't seen any additional information. The geeknet staff are "out of the office" until Monday, January 4th, 2010, so there is a non-zero possibility this was an emergency.

Did they need to ran an ALTER TABLE or something?
