    I was slashdotted!
    Sorta.

    Okay, truth is one of my sites was linked to from the forum at slashdot.

    You're not mad just 'cause I fibbed a little are you?

    I wasn't slashdotted, but I was hit by traffic from five forums all at once. Traffic overall has increased by about 8% and stayed there since, most of it from search engines.

    I got Slashdotted last year. It does seem to give a permanent traffic boost.

    Server was fine, but it was only a mid-sized story, even so I got an entire month's traffic in a day.

    Mirrordot is meant to help mitigate the Slashdot load but I think it's a client side thing only.

    Okay guys, but you know I wasn't *truly* slashdotted, right?

    There was just a link in one thread about one page on one of my sites is all. In fact I'd say the traffic it drove was negligible. Still in all, it was pretty cool.
    If I was ever really slashdotted I'd probably be too busy refreshing my stats to actually get my butt in here to tell you all about it!

    Rhea, maybe you need to create a page *just* for Slashdot readers. Combine Star Trek, RFID tags, Linux, Firefox, the DMCA and something about video games and you might well have the perfect combination.

    Dynamoo, are you saying they're pocket geeks? Slide rule geeks? Scientific calculator geeks? Yeeesh. This is gonna take some thinking.

    I do humor. What do people like that think is funny and cool? Wearing your Mr. Spock ears backwards? Dressing up like female Klingons? Spelling out words on a calculator? Finding pi for all the known prime numbers?

    Howzabout a "What the hell are YOU doing here" page? That'd be easy. <elg>
