What I Wouldn't Do For a Drudge Link
— Ace

Fat Kid sends me this unbelievable site-meter display, from a blog called, it seems, Cheese & Crackers.

Drudge linked the blog.

The results were, erm, rather noticeable.

Bang! A 400,000+ hit day will really have an impact on your weekly average, I'm thinking.

For goodness sakes. I've been chasing Instapundit! Drudge is where the action is!

Now, if only I had access to some information he'd be interested in. Some headline like:

FREAK! Kitten Born With Inordinate Number of Nipples


HELLSTORM 2005: Hurricane Omega Threatens to Cause Boston and Galveston to Swap Places


MOUSEKEFEARS-- Someone You Never Heard of At Disney Is Planning Corporate Changes Which Will Not Effect You At All, Even If You Own Disney Stock

I've got to get cracking. I'm sure I've got some big Drudge-worthy story in me.


Welcome, New Visitors! I realize a lot of you are coming here off the Drudge/Cheese & Crackers link about the tsunami catastrophe, and you may not be in the mood for humor.

But it's actually this site's one-year blogoversary, and I'll be posting the best comedy (and serious) pieces of the year all day. So, if you're in the mood for laughs (and some of these pieces are really funny), make sure you return during the day, and hit the "Main" button at the top of the page for new material.

1 I like Jordon (cheese & crackers). Glad he got his 15 minutes of fame.

2 I've heard of his site but never read it.

I'd congratulate him were I not so consumed with hateful jealousy.

3 and the quote of the year you ask?Apple is unhappy about how much bandwidth I am using.Apparently this kid has used over 15 TERABYTES of bandwidth in just over 24 hours.

As the blogfather would say: Heh.

4 Oh, and by the wayHELLSTORM 2005: Hurricane Omega Threatens to Cause Boston and Gavelston to Swap Placeshad me laughing my ass off when a customer of ours (worth $100MM+) called in. Oops.

5 Ace, you gotta make that hateful jealousy work for you.

7 Jordon is a friend of mine. It was pretty crazy when we were emailing back and forth about the videos (he said he could host with the apple account). First LGF linked to him (after I sent Charles a tip), then Powerline, then Drudge.. I commend Jordan for his great work...15 terabytes is OFF.THE.HOOK!

8 Wow. As if anyone needed MORE proof at just how powerful Matt Drudge is in the blogosphere.

Tell me that a link at Slate or the NYT site gets that many clicks in a day.

Screw Glenn Reynolds; I too must get a Drudge link. Now, where did I place that story about The Donnas calling American soldiers jack-booted fascist thugs. . .

9 Oh, and Ace?

Please tell me you've seen Team America by now.

Because I'm pretty sure there's *one* thing you wouldn't be willing to do for a Drudge link.

As for me? Eh. I dunno. Not just anyone can draft me for the other team.

But, say, Brad Pitt, or George Clooney, or Under Secretary of State for Arms Control and International Security John Bolton. . . maybe.

I mean, c'mon, it's 400,000 hits man. . .

10 Hey, it's not all cheese and cracker for Jordan. There was some sort of switcharoo when he was born. He was taken home by a loving, yet barking, family of moonbats and forced to live and attend school in Massachusetts.

11 Ace, I know you probably can't tell when I'm kiding or busting your balls or not any longer, but I had a Drudge link once. You'd think it'd be awesome, but only if you have an awesome host, as mine pulled the site down after less than 10,000 hits, due to the massive number of simultaneous requests melting their servers. It lasted only a few minutes.

Just sayin.'

The Daily Recycler got serveral, however, and was able to handle the load pretty well, serving video. So I nhave no idea how it works. By the way, the easiest way (but not only way) to get a Drudge-lanche? Host some video that nobody else has and send in a tip.

12 Start posting pics of severed heads. He'll be on it like white on rice.

13 That's awesome.

Posted by: Jordan Golson at December 29, 2004 06:09 PM (+kdY9)

14 Bill at INDC:

You have it exactly right.

And believe me, the Drudgalanche is not all it's cracked up to be.

I've been stressed all day because Apple finally pulled all the movies and it seems there isn't a hosting company in the world that can handle the traffic.

I finally decided to pawn it off on a million mirrors.

Hopefully some of these folks will stick around...

I think the sitemeter numbers are a bit low too... I don't know if they could keep up

Posted by: Jordan Golson at December 29, 2004 06:15 PM (+kdY9)

15 Ace, don't believe them. It's better than sex. They just don't want to share. It's like an exclusive club only they can belong to. Under no circumstances give them any of your Drudge ideas.

Posted by: julie at December 29, 2004 06:38 PM (k4C2b)

16 And you thought 20,444 was high for an average, that was just with 180k hits from yesterday.

I got 525k hits today. If I stay linked on drudge... damn

Posted by: Jordan Golson at December 29, 2004 06:40 PM (+kdY9)

17 Julie-

I thought the hurricane one was awesome


Posted by: Jordan Golson at December 29, 2004 06:43 PM (+kdY9)

18 Ace is indisposed at the moment.

He will be with you to commiserate about the problems associated with excessive Drudge linkage shortly.
Please stand by.

21 LMFAO Blogging for 3 weeks helps this out someOooooooooooooh, what a muthaf*cka - lololololol

That's gonna leave a mark - especially on Ace's 1 year anniversary, and after getting voted best of the top 100 blogs - you get half his annual traffic in 1 day. LMFAO. Jeezus

22 I have an exclusive video i gave jordan on my site

Posted by: Austin at December 29, 2004 11:12 PM (6lqyo)

23 Damn Jordan. I know I don't want a Drudge link. My current hosting plan allows 5.5 GB of transfers a month. 15 Terabytes? That's not even on their scale. I work in the data storage/management business and 15 terabytes is a lot of effing data!

Jordan, time to take out some blogads, quick!

25 Careful, Jordan. Steve Jobs could show up with a goon squad at any moment. Especially since Bernard had to go shoot of f his mouth like that.

Posted by: Smack at December 30, 2004 04:54 AM (CBDWx)

26 Yeah, but how much do you really have to worry about a Steve Jobs goon squad?

What are they going to do, stomp around and make the place asthetically-pleasing?

I already got an email from The Steve...

Jimmie, that's freakin' hilarious...

28 Well done Ace.

29 Hahaha, 15 terabytes in 24 hours.

My servers monthly allowance is 1.2 terabytes.

Bit Torrent seems like the way to go!
