Proton is down kthnxbye

Life’s funny. I was just talking to some peeps yesterday about the wisdom of getting ample hosting plans for websites and today Proton’s website is down because of the surge in traffic from their latest advertising campaign, the Proton MPV Naming Contest.

I guess it’s better to have too much bandwidth than too little (who you gonna call: Media Temple).

Now, their corporate site is just a bunch of text-links. Sorta like Jakob Neilsen’s website. Now, that’s funny.
