We were down for about an hour plus at about 6 PM Eastern time tonight. Our host, Bluewho said it was because of increased HTTP traffic that burdened the server. Despite having a lot of pages today (at least for us) - looks like 11,000 plus we are no where near our bandwidth limits for the month (we did about 750 megabytes yesterday - less than 1 gig and I don't think we did more today actually).
I need to figure out whether it was just a lot of visitors today or whether something is goofy with POSTpn that is overtaxing the server. Only thing is I didn't do anything "under the hood" with this most recent website change so I can't think of anything that would be different between last month (when we were fine) and this month (when Bluewho cut us off). Any advice, speculation, diagnostic approaches, etc is appreciated.

Morning all. Not much in the way of news this morning (If you've got news, an announcement, blatant hype--send it to us) but a few interesting bits (read on for the news). You may have noticed that the new design is slowly, slightly changing. That's not a sign that it wasn't done yesterday - it's because of the dimensional vortex created by Chris Crosby's cover this month.

An all new Arcana Jayne short story begins at GirlAMatic.com today, January 11th. Called "Tango", this installment focuses on Jayne's buddy Padraigh, his birthday, personal epiphanies and new beginnings. All that, and it uses the visual of dance as a subtextual metaphor! Whoo! Par-tay!
Arcana Jayne is written and colored by Lisa R. JontÃ©, with stunning artwork provided by the equally stunning, Lea Hernandez. Updated every Friday, and the current episode is always free!

Stuart Robertson weighs in with an interesting list of comic websites ranked by their PageRank status with Google.
PageRank is Google's way of deciding a page's importance. It's the numeric value assigned to represent how important each page is on the web. When one page links to another, it is effectively casting a vote for that page. Links from pages with a higher PageRank are given more weight in calculating the overall PageRank.
