And this surprises you, how?
Face it Kyle, you are damned good at what you do.
It's just a fact of being you.
You have been tested, and found wanting.
no, my ISP has been tested and found wanting. and they survied three million hits last thursday. i can only imagine what they must be getting right now...
Wow - remind me to never make you mad; I don't think that I would like you when you're mad ;o)
I've heard he turns green and wears purple jeans when this happens.
Another reason not to make him mad - purple jeans *shudder*
lol, that's awesome. bad for your isp, granted, but awesome insofar that this project is getting more exposure all the time, on top that he posts his own "where you write" photo. in my book, that's a major compliment
sweet barking cheese!!
Excellent! And the snowball keeps growing and growing!
This post is full of WIN!
The costs incurred must me enormous!
Hah! At least I'm not the only one today having trouble keeping my servers up. I've got blinkenlight going on behind me again...
Maybe now you'll believe how incredibly awesome you are. :)

Yikes. If things keep going this direction, this may end up costing you money -- having to go to a better-connected ISP (and probably pay for a higher-level hosting plan, too).
My hosting plan nominally covers some absurd amount of traffic, but I rather imagine that level isn't achievable with the fraction of a shared computer I get there (the cheap shared hosting plan at Dreamhost.com; I don't have to worry about million-hit days much these days).
if your dreamhost domain is not responding, it may be my fault :-)

Or vice versa; at the moment my most recent blog post links to you. Maybe it's not Boing Boing at all!
It's kind of like when Neil does that on Twitter, and ends up with #NeilWebFail. :) Hee.
that's awesome. you've really arrived when your fans crash your server. ;)
to be fair, it was cory's fans who crashed my server, but it's still nice :-)
The blog should almost be renamed boing-boing-crash. Congrats!

Yeah, but the crash was worth it
I really enjoyed the work. Inspirational for this writer in the Orygun sticks.
Have you photographed Cory yet? His book "Little Brother" was fantastic, I recently read it for my Young Adult Lit class!
sadly he's in england which, at the moment, is too much of a jaunt.
Dude, GO TO ENGLAND! Figure out some crazy plan! Make it happen!
(perhaps something to discuss with your agent?)
(or, is it a day job thing? I'd watch their servers for you... not that I know what to do with them other than sit and stare...)
Yahoo for being boing-boinged by Cory Freakin' Doctorow. Kyle Freakin' Cassidy is definitely Made of Awesome.
gratz on the self induced DDoS :-)
Congratulations on breaking the internet! :D There really ought to be some kind of award for that. I reckon it'd look almost as awesome as one of those nice Hugos, too.
I'm in AZ, and you're right, people are screaming.
Oh, wait, my bad. That's just the coyotes. :>)
