Wired = Overloaded Server
Wired published an article about net hoaxes today, for which I was interviewed. The increased traffic it brought promptly melted down my web host's servers, which has been causing quite a headache for me. But regardless, it's nice to get the visitors. Perhaps a few of them were even able to view some of the site's content.

I read about your site in the new issue of PC Magazine today. That may have contributed to the increased traffic as well.
