|I have no idea what the population of HN is, not the global distribution thereof. I'm working on a pet project that I would like to show of at some point, and in the event that it actually hits the front page (unlikely as it may be), I would like to know if I have the budget to spin up enough servers to handle the load, or if I should just point people at the github repo.|
When other people have had their project show up on the front page, is there any pattern of how many concurrent users you topped out at, and how long most of them stuck around?
