I posted a question to slashdot, asking about a situation at work. If you are coming here from there, welcome! Traffic to this blog increased ten-fold after the question went up. As regards whether or not my question got answered, I would offer a definite 'maybe'. As a friend noted last night 'no wonder developers have a bad image as communicators, if this is how they communicate with each other!' The high point, for me, was being called a PHB, or Pointy-Haired Boss.
I'm very amused about your spike in visitors based posting a good Slashdot question. Maybe I should try that tactic for driving traffic to our SNHU.edu website! *laugh*
