This is really just too funny. So Digg.com has a reputation for taking down sites with massive traffic loads, as it just did to WebUrbanist. However, another article currently on the front page specifically addresses load issues. The headline reads: “Traffic generated by Digg’s over 1.2 million famously info-hungry users can crash an unsuspecting website head-on into its CPU, memory, and bandwidth limits. How does Digg handle all this load?”
Irony of all ironies, this website – HighScalability.com – itself can’t handle the Digg load. In one single move the site managed to undermine the credibility of its own domain name! Priceless.
