Dear wonderful MSP readers,
I’m so sorry that our site was down earlier today. We were very fortunate to be linked to by one of my favorite blogs (Gizmodo) in a post that Jesus Diaz wrote about my reasons why the new iPhone 3GSex (well, Jobs et al call it the 3GS) is primed for use in sex. In no time at all, the tens of thousands of visitors was a bit much for MSP to handle. MSP crashed.
Not that it was Giz’s fault, though. The truth is that many more people have been visiting MSP in recent months and, for some time, I kept thinking that perhaps we should upgrade to a bigger server to avoid the occasional outages and slow start-ups we were seeing. I waited too long. The good news, though, is that the impressive influx of traffic from Giz prompted us to upgrade the server, which makes it very unlikely that we will have a similar issue any time soon (knock on wood).
Again, I’m sorry if you were kept out of MSP for too long today.
