Server Overload


Apologies for the errors and general slowness of Pixel Joint right now. We're overloaded with traffic (we occassionally get massive traffic spikes from a popular site linking to us) and all we can really do is wait it out.

We'll be upgrading to a much better server in the next couple of weeks so hopefully these spikes will be less of an issue.

Thanks for your patience!

I tried posting a PJ link on reddit once, someone else saved the same picture  as a jpg and uploaded it to imgur and got 10x the upvotes.

 I was concerned too. Especially because I am working somewhere different for a few days and just thought the internet was bad here. :) Good to know it's the site...Wait, good? Um... Sure.

I'm assuming someone posted something awesome on reddit, but that's just my guess.

 i was wondering what was going on the last few times I checked the site. Extra traffic is never a bad thing, and i'm patient enough to allow loading time.

 might as well take the chance to rework the site's layout and features.

overtraffic... I don't think this is bad.
I love PJ.

 Being overloaded with traffic can only be a good thing, right?
