This morning we were discussing by email with Waldemar what could be causing some DB errors from the photo gallery and a general slowness of the website. Waldemar contacted our service provider, and their response was “your site has suddenly become too popular” (something that effect). Well, no wonder: I just noticed that we were Slashdotted (Haiku Tech Talk at Google a Success). I checked the logs, and it looks like the site received about 10,000 hits from /. in less than 12 hours!
This is a companion discussion topic for the original entry at https://www.haiku-os.org/blog/koki/2007-02-17_haiku_os_org_slashdotted/
