I was able to get hold of my hosting provider (virtuaal.com) and upgrade to their biggest package in about 15 mins.

Looking forward to the 'What happens when a post about a post that hits #1 on Hacker News, hits #1 on Hacker News?' post.

great idea :)

"ie. my Mom and a dozen bots" in the graph is priceless.
