Most users ever online was 442 on 7 minutes ago

Ironically, both incidents were caused by newcomers in the community.

Interesting! Did a news item about the copperhead spaceship show up somewhere very popular, just recently?

I must be badly out of date, since I'm clearly not paying attention to whatever-it-is. Can we maybe get a few hundred more people interested in running apgsearch, by mentioning Catagolue pointedly enough?

I noticed this.

EDIT: Probably Nathaniel has got more information about sources people come from.

Yes, it got at least as high as number 8 on the front page of Hacker News. HN drives traffic the way Slashdot used to.

I have just made an account on Hacker News and upvoted both entries.

I encourage you to do the same thing. It only takes a few minutes.

Thanks. It's nice that Catagolue got a mention in the comments. I suppose the next major discovery or milestone might merit a dedicated blog entry -- might attract a little more attention (and CPU cycles). Come to think of it, a similar article (codeholic's, about the pufferfish) caused a similar spike in interest in Catagolue a year ago.

It was also really good to see Chris Rowett's LifeViewer get a well-deserved compliment in passing:

No, it didn't. At least not by a significant amount - there are less than a hundred people subscribed to the subreddit, and the traffic stats page, which I've made public (as moderator), shows that it usually gets less than half that many pageviews per day.

They most likely heard about it on Hacker News.
