Welcome slashdotters!

Well, I just got slashdotted. That's one for each of my websites. It took Cooking For Engineers about 3 months to get slashdotted and basically put me on the Internet map. I owe much of the success of Cooking For Engineers to that particular post on slashdot. (I had nothing to do with the potentially sexist comments.) Imagine my surprise when this time around, it took 3 weeks. Granted I wrote a brief article on how I solved a mysql migration issue which is a more relevant topic to slashdotters than food and cooking. Of course, this time there isn't the sexism controversy, so I'm not sure what load of traffic will be hitting the server. (Although, I expect there will be the controversy over whether or not my mysql tip is more harmful than useful since I'm not a mysql expert in any way and my advice could be poorly written and ill conceived.) In any case, I have a general idea what the load is going to be like, so don't hate me, but I'm turning on my adsense for the next couple days. Leave a comment if you agree or disagree with this action.

Oh, and if anyone knows how to get wp-cache working with Wordpress 2.1.3, please let me know. I've had some issues.
