We're sorry – we blowed up the Internets

Some of you may have noticed that S&R has been down for the last hour or so, and we apologize. The Hillary Clinton/Rocky Balboa post we put up earlier caught fire on Digg and wound up on the top page there, which meant we were seeing more hits in an hour than we do most days. Short version: this level of traffic overran our shared hosting set-up and the hosting company shut us off.

We’re investigating solutions that will hope assure this doesn’t happen again, although the money involved may mean we have to consider taking advertising to offset the cost.

When the ruckus dies down we’ll try to re-post the Hillary/Rocky item, but for the moment we have pulled it in order to be able to continue operation.

Thanks for bearing with us.
