After being hit by a denial of service attack that downed the Million Dollar
Homepage site, British student Alex Tew now faces a lawsuit from one of the
advertisers on the site.

The winner of the last 1,000 pixels, which sold for US$38,100 on eBay, is
threatening to sue because the Web site was offline for six days until
Wednesday, the Financial Times reported in its online edition on Thursday.
