    We have over a thousand people every 20 minutes viewing the thread on how to break into your u-lock. http://www.bikeforums.net/showthread.php?t=66128

    When I configured the server, I had the idea of 800 concurrent users max, peaking at 1000 users. Not 1500 concurrent users peaking at 2000!

    This is big!

    This is bigger than the bicycle smile thread.

    This is almost as big as the terrorist hack!

    I find the site very slow in the past 2 days. I know it is not me, cause other sites load just fine.
    It sometimes take more then a minute for a page to load..

    My guess is it's due to all the outside attention being paid to the lock+ballpoint=unlocked story.

    It's because of that kryptonite lock controversy- it's caused us to get an increased traffic beyond what Joe's server can handle. So we are going to have to put up with it until either the topic dies down or until Joe can figure out how to get another server going... because he doesn't have a lot of money to go into investing into extra servers. Frankly, I think he shouldn't get the new server. Why should he when strangers are logging in and not even clicking on the ads or making donations to the site?

    Yesterday, it got posted to USENET with a link to BikeForums.net. That may be a part of it.

    I got the same thing today. That was fun (not). I think I'll go ride. Hope this settles down a bit.

    Actually it hurts the boradband users more than it does dialup. Having said that the forum loads so slow it wouldn't even hurt your 56k. It kills us because we're used to the forum loading in like 0.001s, whereas dialup peeps get a max of 5.x kbps.

    I say you have no idea what you are talking about

    Any webmaster waits for the opportunity for increased promotion. I would die for an opportunity like this. Let Bikeforums bask in the glory...remember that it will die down eventually.

    I just purchased an additional 2 GIG of ram for the server, so speeds are back up once again. Enjoy.
