There was a giant CPU spike yesterday when generatedata.com was linked to on reddit, causing servers to melt, kittens to die, etc. etc. I’ve moved the script over to a dedicated host with about 5x the resources, so the site is already loading a loading a lot snappier. But this is just a temporary fix: I need to properly scale it out and work on improving the efficiency of the code – something I’ve meant to do for a while.
I’ll cut back on my birding this weekend and start now. :)
