What’s tougher on infrastructure than being SlashDotted? Feing Farked, that’s what. Fark.com just posted a link to Wil Wheaton’s presentation and as of 12:30pm we’re getting a new listener every 8-9 seconds on average. Most of the audio (MP3 downloads and streams to the Windows Media Player) is delivered by the CDN thank goodness, but the MP3 ShoutCast streams and the HTML pageviews are server by a little Celeron box somewhere in Texas. Looks like the IT Conversations site will be a bit slow until this quiets down. Guess it’s time to think about that new server.
