I read that one yesterday! Congrats!
Being Slashdotted, however, does not warrant much traffic. When a page of
mine was in the front page, it was Sunday morning, a very specific (not
broad) subject so I had 2000 visits that day, only half of which attributed
to Slashdot. Some people meantion figures like 50,000 visits (assuming the
server endures of course).
