Way to go, Gilford! Now that you're really somebody, we'll have to give you a more posh name.

No... the database hasn't grown much as a result... not nearly the 50 GB in a day the guy mentioned in his presentation when he anticipated that it'd be posted on slashdot.

I just noticed on Daily Rotation that Tiny Disk got mentioned again. This time at Shell Extension City. Certainly not a Slashdot, but it means the story is still making the rounds.

Thanks for the heads up... so far the whole thing hasn't been much of an issue, other than blocking a couple users from the TinyURL servers. The TinyURL database is now 3.0 GB, and on the day of it being slashdotted it was 2.8 GB.

Just in case you missed it; This article may be a spin-off translation of it.

I got slashdotted once. I used to have videos I made from a camera mounted on my RC car. Someone posted the link on the front page of slashdot... the server hated it... 100GB of bandwidth in one day. I was fortunate my provider was cool and didn't make me pay for the overage. Slashdot sometimes has some cool info, but for a smaller provider getting that kind of exposure, it can really screw things up short term.
