Reddit Traffic is Insane
This week we recieved an amazingly large amount of traffic on Portal 2 Sounds due to reddit. On May 28, a total of 80,000 people browsed through the soundboard because a link to it reached the front page of reddit. So far this has been the biggest spike in traffic we've had, and it was particularly exciting for us because our server was actually able to handle the increased traffic without dying on us. This contrasts with several other occasions when we crashed / got kicked off the server due to excessive traffic (these both happened when the site was brand new). If you want to take a look at the stats we collected during the spike, here is a link to what the statistics graph looked like:
MyCraft+ hasn't had too much work done on it recently because we've both been busy with school and other projects. There were a couple small updates to the beta that should fix some mods. Hopefully we'll have more time for development than we've been having recently.
We've made many promises about when our Minecraft server will be made public to some people, but things haven't been going so well with it. Every time we look at it either there are plugins to update or something isn't working as it should. The server has been set aside for when we have more time or can find someone who can manage it for us. If you know anyone with experience setting up a bukkit server (maybe yourself), you can PM xthexder about helping out.
