after tooling along nicely at about 45,000 hits a month all summer, armedamerica.org suddenly jumped to 175,000 hits on the 20th, and 187 three days later. last night i got more than half a million hits. my isp freaked the fuck out, i freaked the fuck out. (my ISP is going to start charging $350 a month rather than the $100 a year i'd been paying -- my traffic is consistent at 3.6 megabits / second peaking at 9 -- so i'm taking up two T1's all the time, and sometimes as many as six) the PR people at F+W are running around like crazy because they don't have the press kit ready. a swiss newspaper called this morning and wants to do something on it, CBS news left a message on the answering machine.
part of me is really unprepared for this ride but there's not much i can do about it now.
