Not a DDoS, just cats!

My humble apologies to the forum hosts. I really wasn't making a desultory attempt at a Mobileread DDoS earlier this afternoon - it was my cats.

I popped out to the library for a short while, and came back to find something mysterious in the printer queue and my computer beachballing all over the place. I checked to see what was misbehaving, and found Firefox chewing over 4 gigs of memory. Sure enough, the cats had also opened three or four hundred mobileread tabs.

I don't know what they're planning next, but I'm thinking of keeping my Kobo Glo and iPad in a handle-less cabinet in the meantime.

Okay, let us in on it. Which threads were they reading? Politics and Religion or the Have a laugh thread? Oh! Of course, the Cats thread.

Maybe they were downloading The White Mice by Richard Harding Davis?


Edit:
No, never mind, that's just a romantic fantasy...

It's a bit of a head-scratcher: they were looking at this thread on how to go to a particular location within a book.

Clever cats. Covering their traces. Clearly, they have a plan.

Cats always have a plan. In most cases that plan revelves around how to get the next meal, but between all the eating I'm sure they're pondering more serious plans

Where is the next warm place to sleep?

Where should I deposit that hair ball so to maximize the discomfort of my owners when they step on it.

Where should I regurgitate that food I wolfed down.

Yeah, things like that. And world domination (by means of adorableness)
