Bear with me.



I haven't written anything in a few weeks now (been busy with a side-project - I'll plug it here once done, and you'll be able to judge me on my technical writing skills). I have a good idea for an article, but I promised Baltlantis first crack at it. My guilt over procrastination is alleviated somewhat by the fact that they aren't actually paying me anything.

Anyway, an article in Wired Magazine talks about an event I was marginally involved in; records of that event are hosted on AnTyx. I am extremely impressed with my web host for handling the rush of traffic you see in the graph above; still, it's not completely impossible that I will actually run out of bandwidth this month. I am supposed to have an amount of bandwidth far in excess of my needs, and the pages in question are almost completely plaintext, but who knows.

Stay tuned...

It would be a shame if people were unable to access this blog because of some rubbernecking Wired readers...

Meanwhile, this damn winter darkness is cutting into my own ability to satisfy the Turing test...

I just looked at my bandwidth usage, and it's gone far enough.

Try the Wired article now for a laugh...

Dude -- monetize the attention (directly, or even via putting a permalink on it that will get less adept bloggers linking to you). You're just throwing an opportunity away otherwise.

Like dforbes said, put up some serious ads, like popups and shit. Wired will be branded as the assholes who launched the popups, not you, and you can rake in the dough for it.

Flasher T said...

I might put some google ads on there if the traffic flow persists.

Wouldn't like to stoop to David Kushner's level of assholeyness though...

Bravo.
