I’ve DOS’d myself!

Sending out an email about your new version to all your customers and trial users at 3pm is NOT a good idea. Apparently everyone is just sitting there with nothing to do waiting to click the download links in your email! Hopefully everyone will get it soon and it will clear out. I’ll be doing this late at night from now on, so there’s at least some variance in the download time.

I probably need to tweak Apache, because the server should be up to it. It’s dual proc with 2gb of ram. Oh well, perhaps I don’t have enough child processes enabled.

Update: hmm. My host was down also so I guess I gave myself too much credit as it appears to have been a larger issue. Seems better now.
