As you may know, we’ve been slashdotted. It seems like the Slashdot effect is much harder to handle than the digg effect. We had performance problems for the whole day – I am sorry for that.
As a temporary solution, I deactivated all PolishLinux feeds, as it seems they were responsible for the high load of MySQL (the whole website is cached so the database is used quite seldom normally). I haven’t figured out the actual reason, yet. I’ll keep you informed.
Update: RSS is back now.. It seems that extending the WP-cache helped and even though we got dugg the day after the link at Slashdot has been submitted, we haven’t experienced major difficulties since then.
