[racket-dev] can racket-lang.org survive a slashdotting?

Can the racket-lang.org Web server(s) handle a huge spike in traffic, 
such as if it got on the front page of reddit.com?

schemecookbook.org somehow got onto the front page of reddit.com 
briefly, which seems to have killed schemecookbook.org.  This is no big 
loss, since I think schemecookbook.org gives a bad impression even when 
it's working.  However, I'd hate for racket-lang.org to get its 
potential 15 minutes of fame, but burn out before sifting a new batch of 
users out of the gazillion casual browsers.
