So raspbmc was ddossed last night. Up again this morning but I can't download the install.py file for it on my Mac and I'm getting "curl (7) : couldn't connect to host"

so i try to register on the site forum to ask what's happening and get told I can't register because 2 other registrations have already been made from my IP address. Is this just likely to be due to a range of IP addresses being blocked and it's happened to include mine? If so does anyone know how long till the blacklisting will disappear?

Anyone else seeing the same problem?

Thanks, Rob.

I'd give it some time to recover. Blame to moron behind the DDoS.

Thanks, good to know I'm not the only one affected. I'd be thinking I had a virus if I wasn't running on MacOS ;)
