Site crash? Was it just that there was too much strain on the servers? Giantbomb is growing popular. ;)

Growing Pains.  I hope they have some serious hardware and backbone for bandwidth.  Once the general public see's how awesome this site is, its going to get hammered HARD.  One thing i really hate is when sites become slow and unresponsive when clicking around.  Gah!  GiantBomb seems to suffer from this more and more lately.

Though yes it seems much faster after the "crash".

I think they've been hit with a lot more traffic than they were expecting, honestly. Like 7,000 registrants on the first day, all trying to mess around with the site at once.

The Internet couldn't handle the awesome that is Giant Bomb.
