My site was posted by someone at Digg.com recently, and experienced a heavy traffic. It survived the onslaught, but was crawling painfully. It could have done better if
- I was informed before posting at digg.com
- I had faster internet connection (currently 64kBps upload DSL)
Apache and Ubuntu survived the onslaught, and the site remains up. I had set up a mirror earlier... and it proved handy in these times.
Thank you all for digging/undigging the story!
