Which was very nice. It should be pointed out that most months I get
traffic spikes in the order of 80,000 hits a day -- these are normally
associated with google reindexing, and things like that.
I'm a bit disappointed. I always assumed a slashdotting took a _lot_ more
traffic than that.
The other thing to note with the load average is that the content of the
site is generated with a crappy perl script I wrote. Each hit runs the
perl script. To survive a real slashdotting I would have needed to
statically generate the content.
Finally, the images on the page really should be JPEGS... That would
reduce their size my an order of magnitude.

I would like to take this opportunity to point out that Goldweb is clearly
the best hosting company I have ever experienced. Especially given their
understanding at this time.
I'll pay Bofh and Nemo in pizza at CLUG meetings.
