    VisionsFantastic.com Slashdotted!

    Earlier today our website got featured on a major Iranian Blog (Not Slash.org, but a similar website in Arabic). The resulting traffic has caused us to shut down our servers to protect against the "Slashdot effect" (crippling our server). We will likely be down for a day or so until the traffic subsides. Thank you for your patience.

    Thanks for the heads up. Was going to go by today to see what was new, and it didn't come up.

    Ah, thanks for the heads-up, Chris!

    As I said, it's in Arabic, so it's difficult to comprehend what the site actually is other than a Blog. I can PM you the site address if you're interested, but this is such a rare occurance and such an unlikely website to be linked from...

    I don't think the intention was to crash the website, and it didn't crash the website, we just closed it for a period of time until that particular Blog entry wasn't at the top of the page anymore. I've PMed you the address if you're curious.
