Blaming DDOS.  http://status.linode.com

"The incident was a probable DDOS attack, but its behavior was unusual and difficult to identify. Our network engineers made some adjustments to the DOS countermeasures acquired after last week's incident, and that seems to have stabilized traffic flow. We apologize for the inconvenience. -Ben Larsen Hurricane Electric Internet Services"
