Experiencing a micro Slashdot Effect

A few days ago, an article I’ve written got linked from tuxmachines.org and later from debian-news.net, causing a rapid increase in the number of daily visitors to my blog. This is best illustrated by a picture:

Of course this wasn’t a true Slashdot Effect, as WordPress.com managed to serve without slow-downs. Nonetheless, it’s the first time something like this happens to me, so forgive me for this boring post ;) I didn’t even write the article for publicity, but rather as a means to remind myself how to do the task next time I need it.
