A Berry busy day
Earlier today this blog and my app, Solar Explorer were both posted to CrackBerry.com, causing a spike in Playbook app sales (over 120 so far) and a big surge in traffic to this site.
Normally I’d see about 75 visitors a day, but in the last 11 hours there’s been nearly 1,000!
As a result I’ve been playing with the caching settings on the site because the it’s managed to chew through about 20% of a normal month’s bandwidth allocation.
It’s got a fairly big buffer, but it’s almost midnight here in Australia and I don’t want to wake up to a dead site.
If you’ve seen any strange behaviour in the past hour, don’t worry, it’s just me breaking stuff.
It should be working again now and I promise I’ll leave it alone for a bit.
Thanks to everyone involved, today has been a lot of fun
I’ll see what I can do about getting more Shiva devs to bring their native apps to the Playbook as well.
I know a few others are in the same boat I am, waiting for a Playbook to arrive to use for testing more apps.
