Server Troubles… Fixed?

You guys sure love your Top Gear, don’t you? We managed to break our server today due to the metric assload of traffic (we broke all of our old traffic records, even with the downtime), but PacketCollision and Quiky managed to sort it all out, we hope.
So apologies for the downtime, but we should hopefully be good from here on out. Now go watch Top Gear — it was a great episode!
UPDATE: Things are looking quite good. The drop in traffic plus the tweaked server settings seems to have done the trick. Oh, and for future reference — if the site ever goes down again, make sure to check the site’s Twitter account as I’ll post status updates there.
