The Slashdot Effect

Writing an article and actually getting it up to slashdot is fun. Yesterday I had about 55.500 hits on my article, which can be found on this page:

It's fun to analyze the logs afterwards, because you can see when the article was actually posted. There is another peak, between 15:00 and 16:00 and I'm not sure where this comes from.

My ISP survived the “attack”, though. Good job from them.
