Nice! Thanks for letting me know.

well, it was also featured on Slashdot:

http://developers.slashdot.org/story/11/03/06/2142233/

(after I submitted it there.)

So I guess that's where Ms. Day learned about it.

livejournal.com, where unarmed.shlomifish.org is hosted should have no problem 
to handle such traffic (which I think is relatively small in comparison to its 
daily traffic). As you can see from:

http://unarmed.shlomifish.org/629.html

The main target audience of the blog are the so-called "20% of programmers", 
who are also the main audience of such sites as http://www.joelonsoftware.com/ 
, http://www.paulgraham.com/ , or http://catb.org/~esr/ . I've learned it from 
http://www.ericsink.com/articles/Buzz.html that I should aim at a certain 
small group of people.

So http://unarmed.shlomifish.org/ started out on the right foot with all this 
publicity (and I still can do some more of it). So I'm happy. Any help with 
doing that would be appreciated, and you can also comment on the page.
