Yes indeed, as the folks noted over at Slashdot - We really experienced the Slashdot Effect more than ever over the last 24 hours.

We were slashdotted yesterday for Koroush's System Optimization Guide for Gamers. We have had a great number of people come by TweakTown and as a result it slowed things down to a crawl - things are just starting to improve.

Thanks for your understanding, things should slowly becoming back to normal now.
