Stephen Fry Fried My Website

Stephen loves sharing.  He’s nice like that.

Today he decided to share a little story about his Vista laptop with the world, via Posterous.  You can read his story here: [he killed it] (assuming he hasn’t killed the site again).

Posterous just so happens to be the very same service I am using here…  As I’ve no doubt you can see.  The problem with this is that when Stephen posts his little story and shares it with the world via Twitter you get the Fry effect.  That being 1000 (or maybe more) eager readers visiting the site at the same time to see what he has written.  This results in the website being literally fried.

Thank you, Stephen Fry.I hope your Windows PC gets a virus.  That’ll learn ya!
