trivial traffic bump

I normally get around 1000 to 1300 hits a day (or 32,000 to 40,000 per month) on trivia. Not a huge hit rate, but consistent and on a slight upward trend over the past year. Today I have seen over double that – most of it this morning. Between 05.30 and 07.00 local time my logs show nearly 1800 hits from one IP address alone consistently knocking on the door looking for login capability. That address comes from a netblock allocated to CHINANET’s fujian province network.

Please stop it. Whoever you are. (I may have to install fail2ban, much as I dislike that idea.)
