For any of you on in the past hour or so, sorry for the INSANE lag (to the point where to load ub.c's homepage took nearly 10 minutes, and for all you geeks, my ssh session was timing out before it could validate my password).
I host a friend's World of Warcraft clan site on this server also, and well, they're pretty good assumingly. Anyway, they beat Blizzard (company that made the game) employees in WSG (a battleground) twice in a row and took a video. Now, beating Blizzard is pretty much unheard of, but they did it.
And there's the video. Nearly a 100mb file that they decided to host on my server, and link to in the WoW forums. The thread the posted ended up being sticky'd in the General Chat forum (their biggest forum with THOUSANDS of people online constantly).
You can guess what happened.
I took down the video, kicked the server a few times, and it's all good now.
So sorry about that lag spike, but I think I just felt the slashdot effect
without slashdot. lol
The server UB is on can handle a lot, but not 13,000 people requesting a 100mb video in the period of 48 hours. lol
