So the Mrs. decides to do a giveaway. In an hour, there have been over 1,200 comments. The server just barely started to sweat (your mileage may vary). I don’t think the server has ever seen that kind of comment load. Chalk a big one up to caching and webinternetry jim jammin on the one.
She had a bunch of images up, but given the nature of the post, they were causing slowdowns. While Heather is at the gym, she authorized me to pull the images down if the site got slow. Hopefully, they’ll go back up if the interest slows over the next few days.
I have to say that i’m very impressed with Drupal right now. I think we made the right choice for a content management system. Thanks everybody for your patience if dooce® is down. I’ll be on server watch for the next few days, so you can contact me: djblurb [at] blurbomat [dot] com if you see bugs or experience issues relating to not being able to leave a comment. Your other issues are best left handled by trained professionals and/or legal chemicals.
Go comment and win a Wii with Wii Fit!! Good luck!
