Sorry for the downtime everyone

The site got absolutely KILLED by traffic today. We broke our online record by a long shot with Most users ever online was 1,538, Today at 10:54 PM.

Everything should be calming down by tomorrow and things can get back to their normal routine hopefully.

I will def. be looking into a better server for the future!

Re: Sorry for the downtime everyone

727 story and yes. We hit the mainpage of digg.com and reddit.com and then it was a snowball effect of links. Everyone on Digg saw it and then linked to that thread from their sites. As of 7AM today we are sitting at 12k uniques.

Once it calms down it is going to be good for the site as this will give us quite a few links to the site which search engines love.

Re: Sorry for the downtime everyone

Maybe you want that swf file that killed my personal site a few years ago.. You can still find it on the first few pages of google (linking to my site)...
