Last night I was checking our website from home and the connection was brutally slow. I managed to catch our head of IT via Instant Messenger and he checked into it.
Well, it turns out that a major blog was linking to our Silly Putty Physics Experiment and it was killing the T-3 that our main site is hosted on. So we moved it over to our new OC-3 and all is fine. I love bandwidth…
So if you were experiencing difficulties with the site last night, you can blame it on silly putty!
But if you haven’t seen the experiment (conducted back in 2002) it’s worthy of a chuckle. See it here.
