Late Tuesday night, I created a post on digg.com about my AJAX File-Upload Progress Script.  It became extremely popular: in about 24 hours, it received 500 "diggs," and it spent most of Wednesday as #2 on the the del.icio.us "popular" page.  (It’s still #1 on the AJAX page.)

Encodable.com received 5800 unique visitors who were checking out the script on Wednesday.  At the height of the traffic, there were about 130 visitors online simultaneously at any given moment.  And since the demo version is here on nodivisions.com, there were 1800 unique visitors here yesterday, too.

(If you’re wondering why there are so few files in the file-list for the demo, it’s because the uploads were quickly filling my server to its full capacity.  I had to implement a cron-job that automatically deletes uploads older than 30 minutes twice an hour.)

Now at 11am on Thursday, there have already been 350 visitors on encodable.com, and 250 on nodivisions.com.  Much less than yesterday, but still going fairly strong.

So, are you getting any business from all those hits?

I’ve gotten a couple inquiries, but the people who read digg.com and use del.icio.us are mostly programmers and designers themselves, so it’s not the kind of crowd I’d get much business from.  But all the traffic will serve to raise the profile of Encodable Industries on the web in general, which is a good thing.

I’m so proud!  You’re a genius; you just need to get recognized.  Of course, only your Mom can say this :)  But hey, is all the traffic the reason my system was so slow?  Nahhhhh, my system is so slow because it’s jurassic.  Still lvu..........

I put a link to my picture website on this parenting website / discussion board that I frequent. The link is right in my siggy, so I’m hoping people will see your encodable info when they check it out.  I know I always look at people’s websites on the board. I hope, I hope, I hope!!!!!!

Thanks.  Hey, how come you haven’t put any photos on your site yet?  Do you want to call me so I can walk you through it the first time?

I had fun reading the comments on AJAX page but can’t find your post on the ’popular’ site.  Maybe because it’s 9 days later?
