LinuxToday Effect

I was browsing LinuxToday this morning and i was kinda surprised to see my previous post would come up on that site. It's the post about KDE's Future on Slackware. It seems that the news about Slackware and KDE is quite hot, so that some people decided to post it on LinuxToday.

And the result is a big load of traffic coming to this blog on that day. Luckily, this blog is hosted at Google's infrastructure, so i don't have to have to pay additional cost for the high load and not getting a LinuxToday effect (just like Slashdot Effect) I usually gets around 400-600 pageviews everyday based on Blogspot's stats, but on the day it was posted, the traffic went up exponentially just like the screenshot below
