    Ustream down today

    Very interesting. I've been trying to access the Decorah Eagle site and it's down. So I googled Is Ustream down and got this:

    Under Attack

    Ustream issued the following statement via Twitter:


    “News Alert: #Ustream is inaccessible due to a large scale DDOS attack targeting Russian opposition channels on Ustream.”

    DDOS attacks are regularly used to suppress opposing views and critical citizen journalism, but these attacks tend to be directed against smaller blogs or dedicated opposition websites. Bambuser told us that this marks the first time its site has been victim of a DDOS attack
    Makes me wonder what's going on in Russia.

    what is Ustream?
    Q: Why can't I read the competition threads?
    A: Competition forums on the board are available to those with a Season Pass or a premium membership How to View Kiss & Cry

    It's a live streaming service that people or organizations use. The Decorah Eagle cam uses Ustream to live stream its nest cam where you can watch a eagle pair raising its chicks.
    It's similar to you tube.

    Also commonly used in video podcasts. And for live Skate Canada events not blocked by the major networks.
