Traffic surges / scheduled downtime

If you’re wondering why LibraryThing is a little slow, it’s because traffic has surged. LibraryThing was picked as the Kool Site on the Kim Komando radio show. I regret to say that I’d never heard of Ms. Komando or the show, but apparently she’s huge.

Anyway, more than 1,000 users signed up in the past three hours (a 10% increase!). Most are just checking it out, but the traffic is still pretty staggering. I suspect it will pass in a few hours, leaving a few hundred dedicated new-comers. To them: Welcome!
