My apologies for the brief site crash. I got Dugg.

ClimateProgress was down for several minutes about an hour ago. Sorry about that.

I unexpectedly received a large surge in traffic when people really started Digging this post: The truth-telling ad ABC won’t let you see — and what you can do about it.

But my excellent IT folks got right on the case and quickly told me they “dropped a ‘cache’ in front of the site so that every user isn’t reloading the page every time they view it, which appears to have resolved the problem.”

I guess this proves that you can have too much of a good thing.

By the way, if you haven’t joined Digg yet, and haven’t Dugg one of my posts yet, this would be the time to do it. It is a great site for quickly finding the best, most popular posts on the web. Just click here.
