I think I just accidentally DDoSed my FLGS by posting a link on Mastodon.
@craigmaloney I clicked the link once and it didn't load so I think it may be unrelated.
@srol I think all of the sites that are trying to get a preview of their page for the Federated Timeline probably did them in. It's literally a mom-and-pop shop with a small PHP server.
Octodon is a nice general purpose instance.
