TTAC Server Slammed by Traffic: 1.25m Page Views Today
As our regular readers know, TTAC’s labored on the Motown meltdown story for the last eight years, in relative obscurity. As the situation has moved towards its disastrous denouement, our traffic has exploded. It’s gratifying to see our focus rewarded by mainstream interest. Of course, it’s always the bus you don’t see that melts your servers. In this case, our Chinese correspondent Bertel Schmitt’s post on the possibility of The Middle Kingdom buying-up GM and Chrysler struck a nerve– on both sides of the Pacific. Stateside, we’ve been instapundited and digged and linked to from here, there and everywhere (a.k.a. Edmunds). The influx– over 1.25m page views today (as compared to 2.5m per month) lead to a big ass site crash. I apologize for the interruption of service. Suffice to say, we’re back and we’re bad (as always). TTAC may be a bit cranky for a while, as the boffins move shit around (the technical term) to try and cope with the traffic. Thanks for your patience. Especially those of you who’ve provided the foundation for our growth: TTAC’s Best and Brightest.
congrats, may your efforts be rewarded with more than just fleeting interest.
And to think I arrived at TTAC through a VW R32 review!
Robert, You'd love my record collection. Plenty of Kimock and Lowell George.
