      Is it just me or is the listverse site running really slowly today?

        I noticed the same thing actually. It appears to be back to normal now though.

    wondering what is happening w/ this blog.

    Now that we have a new style of front page at listverse, it makes sense to revive the Listverse Blog. This blog is not hosted on the main site so if you experience any issues there, you can come here to post about them.

    This blog will be used to deliver administrative messages – things like site updates and competition results. So be sure to subscribe to the feed so you can catch up each day.

    At 1:19 we will hit the Geek section of Fark – it does not produce as much traffic as the main page, but it can produce a LOT on its own. Hopefully the site will stay up – but if it goes down you will know why. Rest assured I will be working to make sure it stays up – and two recent Fark front pages have not killed us – so fingers crossed! You can comment here if you wish and I will provide updates if they are needed.

    This blog will not go down if the main site does – it is hosted on a different network.

    The site is currently down – the sysadmins are on to it and it should be up soon. At the moment I am unsure of the cause. I will update again soon.

    [Update] The site is now back up.

    The front page on reddit has driven the site to the ground – I am working on getting it back up. Updates soon.

    WARNING: at 5:53 PM Fark time (I don’t know what their time zone is) we are going to hit the front page of Fark with the 20 beers list. I have warned our SysAdmins – hopefully this will not cause difficulties or downtime. If it does, I may have to shut down comments until we can cope.

    At the moment all links are broken on the site as the sysadmins are trying to fix hotlinking problems we have been experiencing. This should be fixed soon. Please stand by.

    [Update]: This is now corrected – the hotlinks issue is ongoing and will hopefully not cause such a dramatically fault when it is being fixed.

    [Update 2]: All faults are now fixed.

    Last night there was a brief outage caused by a failure of a powersupply at Pacific Rack. It lasted for around 1 hour. It is nice to know it wasn’t our fault this time!

      A suggestion for the blog: I think you should have a link back to the main site homepage up there with the ‘home’ and ‘about’ tabs. Would make it easier & I prefer linking than using the ‘back’ button.

    The Top 10 Bizarre Stories from the Bible has reached the front page of reddit (in record time!) – congratulations JT. Everyone cross your fingers that we can survive the onslaught of traffic – we are already past 12 MB/s and I have alerted the systems administrators to be on alert.

    The article on reddit is here.

    [Update] I should mention that the hosting company we use (Pacific Rack) are preparing a plan for me for going forward and coping with more traffic – I am hoping to hear from them on that by the end of today or tomorrow.
