Worldpay DDoS attack ruins plans for world domination

Cash'n'Carrion It was going so well. The deal was sealed with TechnoDepot to sell its very fine t-shirts for geeks on Cash'n'Carrion. The announcement went up on The Register, the sales started coming in. And then lots of complaints from readers who were unable to make an order.

Yes, dear readers, the day we launched the TechnoDepot range on Cash'n'Carrion was also the day that WorldPay first buckled under the strain of an almighty DDOS attack.

Cash'n'Carrion is one of the tens of thousands of small retailers which rely upon Worldpay to handle credit card transactions. Our sales have bounced back quickly since Worldpay restored normal service. But poor old TechnoDepot didn't exactly get a fair crack of The Reg merchandising whip.

So here is another naked plug.

Injecting a little bit of sunshine into a blustery November is the news that Reg shop Cash'n'Carrion has signed a landmark deal to sell TechnoDepot apparel.

TechoDepot's range will more than satisfy those who like their t-shirts both in black and with a snappy tech-savvy slogan, to wit:

  • Binary - "There are 10 types of people in the world. Those who understand binary and those who don't."

  • Fragged - "I see fragged people"

  • RTFM

It's all good stuff and guaranteed to get a knowing wink from fellow conspirators. All three shirts are available in sizes medium to gargantuan 3XL and can be yours for £12.76 (£14.99 inc VAT).

And don't forget that you can now shop at Cash'n'Carrion in pounds, euros and dollars. Terrific stuff. ®
