Liz: Today we’ve got a guest post from the terrifyingly hirsute Pete Stevens. Pete’s from Mythic Beasts, our web hosts; and he’s the reason this website stands up to the absurd amounts of traffic you throw at it. (Yesterday we saw about a quarter of a million sessions – that goes up WAY above a million... Continue reading
On 29 February this year, we launched our newest computer, Raspberry Pi 3. Launch days see a rather large amount of traffic to our website, and as a newly released product, Pi 3 was a relatively untested hosting platform.

Liz: Here’s a guest post from our old friend Pete Stevens, who runs Mythic Beasts, the hosting company that keeps this website on its legs even though more than 100,000 of you visit every day. He’s in charge of a Raspberry Pi which has some of the best connections in the world. And we don’t... Continue reading
