Election Night Notes

A quick programming note: ARLnow.com will be up until the wee hours tonight bringing you live, on-location election coverage. We’ll be reporting from Democratic and Republican victory parties, bringing you the latest results, photos and quotes from local leaders.

With that said, I wanted to offer a quick apology for anybody who tried to access the site between noon and 4:00 this afternoon. An ARLnow.com story was linked to by the ever-popular Drudge Report this morning. The flood of web traffic from that one link caused the site to crash — multiple times.

After two server upgrades we were able to get the site back up, albeit running very slowly. After another upgrade things were pretty much back to normal.

Since we were busy with the server, the site went a while without any new posts. Rest assured that we’ll get to any planned non-election-related stories tomorrow.

Thanks for your patience.

    Missed you while you were gone, but that’s what happens when you don’t choose your friends (Matt D) more carefully.

    interesting – when I saw that headline on Drudge I didn’t click it because I had already read your article on it (and thought it was old news), but I didn’t realize at the time it was a link back here

    I tipped off Drudge. Sorry bout that.
