We Survived Our First Traffic Spike

The Able GamerA few days ago, Nathalie was profiled as a citizen journalist over at Digital Journal and we saw a modest (and quite frankly comfortable) spike in traffic.

Last night around midnight, I posted a trailer for the PlayStation 3 game Afrika that I found on the Japanese PlayStation Store while waiting for our North American store to update.

The trailer alone has seen well over 11000 hits in the last 10 hours. It's pushed out more than 150 GB in traffic, and I saw almost 2000 people bookmark us. We managed to survive getting posted at Kotaku, the GameSpot forums, the Penny Arcade forums and even over at the official PlayStation Forums.

Part of me is happy to see the site get so much exposure. The rest of me is happy the site's still up. I'll definitely be renewing my contract with Host Gator next year.
