Horsepounded

So the other day I wrote about my experience on the set of the Colbert Report. Well, the Digg community picked up on it, and tore my site a new one. The site was temporarily suspended within two hours of being popular on Digg. When it was restored 9 hours later. ANYWAY, I learned a few things, namely how to use WP-Cache to cache your pages so it doesn’t cause so much server load. My hosts, Addaction.net did a great job of getting me back online. I don’t know exactly what they did, but it worked. So thanks to them. Also, I rolled out the latest version of WordPress and K2. For some reason, my site still looks like crap on Internet Explorer. So until I can figure out how to fix it, I recommend that you get Firefox.

Update: I had no idea that a second post on my website had also gotten digged. Well it didn’t take long for the internet police to shut down my site again. I don’t think my webhost was able to handle the server load, so i switched to Dreamhost. Let’s see how long that lasts. Two big diggs in two days was more than my poor site could handle! Hopefully my new host will be more robust. So far their customer service has been decent. I will keep you posted.
