I was sooo tickled with excitement! Looking at the ysql log (ive got the
log dumping to mysql) it looks like I got about 4066 page views on that
page yesterday referred from ./ and about 500 so far today. Its not
much.. but I have only had that server up for a couple of weeks and that
domain too. usually it is aleeya.net that gets all the traffic.
Needless to say I was surprised!
For the better or for the worse? I suspect that people lie when they say
that they received 50,000 referrals or even 20,000. Your post was very
popular, highly commented, and must have appealed to many readers because
it was broad and general. CmdrTaco once spoke of a quarter of a million
readers, I think, but many must be skimping or just have a dormant Slashdot
Either way, you did well.
