I got slashdotted today. idigital posted some stuff about the now-confirmed LJ sell to 6A, and the next thing I knew I was getting 10 hits/second from the slashdot post. Kinda cool, for a nerd like me. My site didn't go under, although my CPU load was definitely maxing out or coming close to it for a good 30 minutes while I was at the top of the page. I've gotten something along the lines of 10,000 hits from that. Nifty.

Personally, although I do a lot of scare mongering, I don't expect that LJ will change significantly from the user perspective. I do think that it will probably (eventually) change away from the open source project it is now, but I could be wrong on that.

I love Jess. This entire day has been interesting. I'm finally onto a new website design - a simplistic one that I don't hate. It's happy making. I couldn't sleep last night. I ended up tired. I'm thinking of prototyping a P2P like system for dynamically redirecting web requests. I think it'd be cool.

I'm sleepy. This entry is disjointed. I used to write entries like this a lot, but then I made my journal all techy. it was probably a bad idea. I kinda missed this.

I should finish my technorati app. Also should talk to family this weekend. I feel like I'm forgetting something. Anyone know what I might be forgetting?

Happy Wednesday.

Hmm... something like this?

Sounds about right, yep. I want to do it without having to change the hostname though.

Yeah, that would be nice.

The source is GPL'd and I can't imagine that it'd be too hard to make it work for a single site without a change to the hostname.

I think the reason they chose the hostname method is that cached sites can be accessed independently of the source site.

Congratulations on being slashdotted, geekguy!

It's also kinda cool being the person to slashdot you!
