So, this is heartening:
Aside from looking like a bar graph for cell phone signal, this shows that now that Whatever’s back on its feet, people are coming back around again. I was curious about how much being away for as long as I was, was going to mean in terms of people reading, and how long it would take to get back to previous readership levels. The answer: Apparently, not long at all. You people make me happy. And feed my monomania! Thank you.
I’m likewise happy to say that it seems that WordPress is handling the load without too many problems; I have the wp-cache plug-in engaged and recaching every 60 seconds, which means that while the database is getting hit, it’s not getting hit so much that it’s buckling under the load.We’ll see how it performs if/when I’m next Farked, but I’m happy to say that for everyday use, at least, my paranoia about my server getting all explody seems to have been overdramatic. I can live with that.
Also, yeah: WordPress is a hell of a lot easier to use so far. You WordPress triumphalists can snicker if you like.
