Digg effected!

In the previous two days you may had noticed a slow down in our site. This was caused as the web 2.0 creation tutorial got dugg and stumbled. The huge blow was from stumble upon. We had 400 visits in one minute, which caused the site to be temporarily unavailable. Two spikes were appeared in our database. This effect is known as digg effect:

“the term given to the phenomenon of a popular website linking to a smaller site, causing the smaller site to slow down or even temporarily close due to the increased traffic”

Now everything works fine. Thank you all for your supports!
