Until I get my VPS server up and running, I’m hosting Command Line Idiot on a shared hosting plan with Dreamhost. Shared hosting is awesome!
Here’s the uptime report on the server that’s hosting the blog.
11:32:24 up 38 min, 3 users, load average: 266.63, 259.39, 230.23
For the uninitiated, that means that the current demand on the server is overloaded by 26,600%. It would take 266 servers to handle the load they’ve dumped on this one single wheezing box that my blog is sharing.
The end result? It just took 9 minutes for the main page of Command Line Idiot to load.
