A few days ago, two of my posts here about mediamax/ thelinkup got listed over at Techcrunch. I’m happy to say MovableType took the extra traffic without issue. Had about an extra three thousand visitors each day for a couple of days. (Played havoc with my Google Adsense numbers though. )
Anyway I was looking for an excuse to post about one man’s experience about surviving a Slashdotting with an older computer.
I would make a comment about how it’s a pity that he had to go find a plugin to deal with the extra traffic while my site took it fine without issue but that would probably just generate some more posts out of the wordpress camp that cloud issues and are so far from the truth, it’s actually funny.
