Joe Apologizes

August 1st, 2011

Sorry to those who had trouble using this morning. The site nearly crashed, but didn’t, after a ridiculously unexpected overload.

Good problems for Joe, but pretty damn lousy for those who wasted a bunch of time refreshing, re-visiting, etc.

    Congrats on the upswing in traffic. Can be a frustrating problem to deal with, but not a “bad” problem.

    No worries Joe, I was getting the shakles for a few moments, but now I have my dose of JBF. Keep cranking out your great material and you just may double those numbers again!

    Hey Joe, check out – – they are about the best hosting service you can get…their packages include a scaling feature that automatically doubles your server capacity if you hit a traffic threshold, it then scales back down once your spikes subside…and no I don’t work for them. cheers

    Joe – I knew what the problem was and just let it download while I looked at something else.

    Just means like the Bucs, you are growing up and becoming larger than life, so increase your bandwidth and enjoy the increased popularity and revenue but keep the same great articles on the Bucs please.

    Fly played no role in this event!

    Fly, where were you Aug first around 7 AM?

    Uh huh. Sure.

    HFXBUC spouts truth Joe. Speed of your server is very important in Google’s new Panda Ranking Update. JBF has hit the big time, and you surely deserve it. This spike was no accident, expect more, and be ready if you can.
