I just want to give a quick note to explain what happened today.
Sometime around midnight last night, a post that I wrote ten months ago about the police brutality case of Kang Wong — an 84 year old man who was beaten bloody by New York City police for jaywalking — went viral. And, I mean viral. I mean like it was viewed more more in a single 12 hour period than the number of visitors I typically get in a month.
Which is great!
Except that it cause my shared server to stall, my (former) hosting service to suspend my website (which I understand), and me to tear my hair out in frustration.
