Because of a welcome link from Glenn Reynold’s Instapundit site — followed by links in 826 additional places — traffic to this site has been rather heavy today. That’s a mild way of saying that we’ve seen unprecedented interest and it’s caused a few problems for our overtaxed server.
I apologize for the trouble this has caused for some of you attempting to reach the site. The traffic we’ve seen in the first five hours is already 24 times what we’ve ever seen in a full day before, so it’s just something we weren’t ready for. If even a fraction of you come back, we’ll have to move to a more capable server, but that would be a nice “problem” to have.
So far today, we’ve seen visitors from 73 countries around the world and all 50 U.S. states. Welcome to everybody. Please come back. You have a lot of choices about where to spend your online time. I appreciate your spending a few of your minutes with me.
