In the past 90 minutes, Kano's Mars color analysis on -- -- has received over 10,000 hits, and has overwhelmed even our new Dual-Xeon server. I've created a plain HTML version of the story to reduce server load during this time of Kano-Chaos... but it will only reduced the load for that piece... people will likely still be clicking through to ATS and things will continue to be a bit slow.

We've been "slash-dotted" Bob88 submitted the story this morning. Crazy-high traffic for the rest of the day.

I've disabled all of ATSNN except for a redirect to a plain HTML version of the Mars color story. This should help improve things shortly.

At the library, since they have high-speed cable (versus my dial-up)... what a big lag time today! You should renegotiate your google contract with all these hits!

I guess Kano will get big ATS points on this one, huh?

Bob runs and hides from William

oops. my bad. Who would have thought? (they have rejected so many of our submissions in the past)

Sorry guys

As new stories get posted on slashdot this will eventually move off their home page - but will be forever in Slashdot. (Slashdot syndicates their site to others on top of being a Google News source)

It looks like the counter-measures are slowly bringing the board to a workable condition. 1) Webserver-based redirect to a static version of the story 2) ATSNN code disabled for now 3) ATS running in low-bandwidth mode The processing time for the board PHP pages is workable... it's just that the webserver is a bit busy right now.

In the past 3 hours, 18,000+ unique users made it to Kano's Mars colors article, and we're currently struggling under 2,178 connections to our web server. Such is the power of SlashDot!

Now, Kano is a debunker who's working for the Great Conspiracy "

link The story has been picked up by Google News... which means the dedicated news-spidering engine of Google will find ATSNN and ATS and pay attention to us as a news source.

This is definitely a "be careful what you pray for situation".


How cool is this?!?

Congratulations Dr. Kano
you big ol' debunker, you.

Look at this article:

So, you can see why they chose to post Kano's post. And, many other sites have talked about this also. (though, we probably 'broke' that also)

Good Job, Kano!

And, go to Google News and search for: Mars photo

All I can say is.

Kano 1, Dual-Xeon Server 0.


Also, wow!

Your thread is approaching 40,000 views... most of them today. And don't get too pumped up there "Dr. Kano" our Dual-Xeon may have been huffing-and-puffing, but it didn't go down! SlashDot is legendary for taking servers down to a completely locked-up stage where a hard reboot is requireed. We survived!

Here's the traffic graph as of noon today... And the day is only half finished.
