Holocainechrisjrn: Also endorsed by Catherine Deveney.06:33
HolocaineI can tell you, I'm really fucking happy I'm not hosting this on a bare DreamHost VPS this time around...06:34
chrisjrnTHANKS JESSE06:34
HolocaineAnd there goes 1,500 concurrents.06:34
chrisjrn(I could probably have got you onto the right Heroku people too, fwiw)06:34
HolocaineFuck me, tomorrow is going to be insane.06:34
Holocainechrisjrn: Rack's doing fine by me, although their Cloud Files thing is useless for a static site.06:35
chrisjrnTell Jesse06:35
HolocaineI will, when I'm not keeping an eye on the blinkenlichten.06:35

praetoriannice work06:54
HolocaineSeems to have levelled around 1,620 for the moment.06:54
praetoriani say it will go up tonight06:54
HolocaineI tend to get a dip around this point. Office workers go home.06:54
HolocaineYeah, I get a dinner-time peak.06:55
praetoriansifnt aws btw06:55
Holocainepraetorian: I can pay for AWS or get Rackspace for free.06:56
praetorianoh :P06:56
Holocainepraetorian: Rackspace gives free accounts to OSS projects, donchaknow.06:56
Holocainepraetorian: And
praetorianis this really oss tho?06:56
Holocainechrisjrn: 1,80010:13
HolocaineI'm on two instances now, as well.10:14
HolocaineJust in case.10:14
chrisjrnso much for a dip after Friday10:14
HolocaineIt'll dip overnight, go utterly nuts, tail off towards 6pm and then be utterly dead. =)10:15
HolocaineIf last election was anything to go by.10:15
chrisjrnSeems like a pretty reliable measure10:15
HolocaineThe difference this time is that I'm not running on a shitty DreamHost VPS so I should be able to take the traffic.10:23
chrisjrnIncidentally, how much work would it take to make a version for the Tasmanian HoA election next year?10:25
chrisjrnHTVs are banned here, so I imagine it'd get a fair bit of take-up here10:25
Holocainechrisjrn: Let me look at it once this is all done.11:34
Holocainechrisjrn: Also: 2,000.11:34
