Refs, RSS, fires, and feeds

Well. That was an interesting day. After a well-placed link on EDSBS.com, the site received some outrageous traffic yesterday. Glenn Phelps' scathing referree commentary has been finding its way to the various throughways and messageways across the interweb. Ironcially, out of all of the message board discussion Glenn caused on various forums, only Michigan's fanbase felt reassured. Odd. The Michigan/Penn State feuding almost caused a system overload all by itself, and we got almost 5,000 hits yesterday. I think it's safe to say that it was a single day record.

In related news, the influx in traffic caused our relatively low-end servers to catch fire. I've got Bloo and the Muppet Newscaster on fire patrol at the moment, and that's probably not the best of ideas given their normally flammable nature. I'm sending the interns out to the local Best Buy for spare parts and the corner Walgreens for some burn ointment.

In the meantime, a quick note on RSS:

-FireMarkMay's RSS feed, for those of you who are into that sort of thing, can be bookmarked from the address bar (Firefox users) or copied from the link (Atom RSS):

http://firemarkmay.blogspot.com/atom.xml

I'll add the Atom link to the sidebar along with the newest member of the Trevolution, CornNation.com, yet another member of SportsBlogNation in the fold.
