99.9 million and one.☺

I just logged on.

Looks like I will really have to step up my recruiting efforts, if I want my contribution to the body count, to be statistically significant.

On march 23, we received a "reddit hug of death" that crashed our servers for a bit.  A normal day of traffic in march was about 44,000 visits.  And on the 23rd we recorded 136,734 visits.

Since that day, Devaka has worked very hard to improve the innards of our servers.  We now think that that we can handle ten times that load.  

Further, since that day ...  it looks like google loves us more.  For example, yesterday we had 64,302 visits - and most of that was from google.  Maybe it has something to do with the pandemic.  But it seems like it is related to the reddit hug of death.  Hellifiknow.

This is the thread where I track this history of this sort of thing, so I thought I would record it before I forgot.  

And then years ago I started this thread with the words:

FWIW:  yesterday we had 404 visitors and 1756 page views.

Our all time record is 413 visitors in one day and 1912 page views in one day.  

It just seems like a fair amount.  I thought I would share.



159 times more visitors.

Noice.
