Ray & Jenny, Pat, and Pamela – thanks!


Yesterday’s announcement, the fiasco on the Late Late Show on Friday night and now Pamela Anderson’s divorce drove a lot of traffic yesterday. (People started looking for her video again!) As you can see from the Google Analytics graph, soon after 8am in the morning the flood started after Ian Dempsey mentioned the birth.

I took the opportunity to move In Photos to a new Xen server on Xen Planet for a short test period. If you see posts there without the comments form you’re looking at the old site and your DNS hasn’t updated yet. It should be complete in a few hours. The new site is a 64MB xen server and it’s holding up well. I’m toying with the idea of using Lighttpd, especially as a lot of thumbnails will be served from that host but I won’t have time to work on that until the weekend. Every night this week is already booked up with one thing or another.

In other news, moving a WordPress site to a new host is fairly painless!

  1. Don’t know if you saw this post where you are position 0 in the most popular Irish blog rankings! Naturally from all the WordPress installations.

    There’s no y axis scale on the Google analytics graph you posted – just wondering if you’d be prepared to share how many visits you actually get a day?


    (PS Hope the XenPlanet hosting goes OK)
