Over the weekend I compiled both of my Photoshop tips articles into a single post and submitted it to Digg (sort of like Slashdot only not as cool but easy to get stuff listed). It completely blew our server and we were down for a while. I’m working on expanding the resources of our server so it doesn’t happen next time. It’s likely something to do with the way MySQL is configured.
I ended up getting a boatload of Digg’s though (1428 as of Sunday night) and I was excited about that. I hope we have a few new readers who stick around. Surprisingly most of the people said they knew the tips that were in the article. I would be willing to bet most people found one or two of them new (and that was the point). I don’t think anybody could come up with 10 brand new Photoshop tips that nobody even knows as some of the people who commented suggested. We were also page #1 on del.icio.us (I always have trouble typing that name!).
Anyways, I thought it was fun and worth mentioning.
