We were slashdotted today after our woeful story of Verizon made the front page. A basic WordPress install is very bad on server performance, and the fact that our public facing pages are all static means our web server wasn’t quite up to the task. But after some tuning and static caching, we’re in better shape.
Slashdot is welcome here; it’s a rare honor to be taken down by a front page link. 😉
