3DGPU Slashdotted … Again

This is our 4th slashdot, and the 3rd time the server didn’t go down, so maybe we’re doing something right. *throws more hampsters in the server room wheels* Run, you little bastards, more power! Slashdot posted about a review a loyal forum reader wrote up on the Logitech MX1000 cordless mouse. The review can be found in the 3DGPU forums.

For those not familiar with being slashdotted (or /.’d); it’s a legal form of a distributed denial of service. Massive amount of geeks visit the website that was linked to, most servers on the internet can barely handle the demand, since Slashdot is one of the most popular sites on the internet.
