Hurricane Sandy’s Impact on the Internets

An odd effect of the storm: CheckedTwice is getting a lot more hits and sign ups today.  I think having a good portion of the U.S. population cooped up inside has put more people online, looking for something they can do to be productive. Christmas is not that far away and holiday shopping is even closer. Even in the storm, they can get a little done.

Lots of extra traffic from North Carolina, Virginia, and New York.  It’ll be interesting to see if traffic dies down tomorrow with the expected power issues.

In the meantime, particularly over the evening, I want everybody to stay safe on the east coast. Get to a safe area with friends and family and maybe a little booze.
