Our IT Director has been slashdotted.  Heh.  And I did it.  I submitted a story about how he bought a Rio Carbon MP3 player just so he could take it apart and use the 5GB Microdrive.

dasBlog is holding up fine again, but his ISP is having trouble with the size of the images in his post.  He had a LOT of pics on the post.

Congrats Greg, you've joined a good group of slashdotted dasBlog users.

Uh, thanks, I think. ;)

I'm glad to say that even with about 10 images, each at over 100KB on the page, the server held up, as did dasBlog. Email notifications got pretty unreliable (I for the typical slashdot crappy comments and did not get all the email notifications when they were posted, so had to discover some of them by looking). CPU has been running up to 90% at the peak - about 60% now - and the large pics choked the NIC card (I put smaller ones up once I relaized what had happened and once I coudl get my FTP client to not time out trying to connect...). But the server and my service provider are holding up well. The graphs are pretty neat to look at, that's for sure!
