Getting Dugg

digg.com is currently having lighttpd.net on the front-page It looks like del.icio.us got also “infected” and its users joined right away

The rails-based mephisto-blog which is driving this site is generating static content which is served by lighty. Thanks to darix work on clean-url and mod-magnet impact on the site is minimal.

The usual morning starts with a coffee, reading mails and checking the referer-logs. That’s long story … reading log-files. Scrolling log-files are looking like the Matrix and are very relaxing.

As I don’t run a log-file analyzer I use a simple grep to scan the last few lines of the referer log:

$ tail -100000 .../access.log |\
   grep -v 'light_button' | \
   awk -F ' ' '{ print $11 }' |\
   grep -v '\(kneschke\|incremental\|lighttpd\.net\|/#"$\)' |\
   sort |\
   uniq -c |\
   sort -r -n | less

Usually we have mininova or rubyonrails sending us most of the referers over the day, but this morning we get:
