I sincerely hope that despite these attacks, this will be the most successful Extra Life yet.
I'm not sure what they've done in previous years but they've already raised over $3 million so they're still doing okay.
I think that the DDoS attacks are actually having the unintended effect of drawing more attention to the cause, so when the site is up and running, the donations make up for the downtime.
Unintended effect or intended effect? Follow the money. ExtraLife DDoS was an inside job.
