Our release of Sphinx-4 received a mention on slashdot this week. As usual, the slashdot hive descended on our site in droves. Here are some stats for our Sourceforge web page:

And the stats for this blog.

It looks like slashdot was responsible for an extra 30,000 hits on the SourceForge site and about 5,000 hits for this blog. That's quite a bit of traffic. Of course, the downside is that you have to put up with some of the typical slashdot comments like this one, but there were some good ones too.


Out of curiosity what tool did you use to get your nice graph of web stats? Hopefully it was something better than grep and gnuplot :)

Dennis, the sourceforge graph comes directly from the sourceforge statistics page. My blog hit count graph comes from statcounter.com a site that provides a hit tracker for blogs.
