Pete P posted this thread on the 10th, I'm guessing it triggered an alarm somewhere in Mr Langdell's lawyers' offices... ;)

I've 'bigged up' (is that still a thing? :lol: ) this place a few times over on /r/zxspectrum, but none correlate to the recent spikes. Odd stuff and definitely interested to know what has driven it.. But we all know it'll ultimately be something really mundane!
Place your bets..

Some organizations "patrol" the web harvesting for information, and some of them use people instead of robots. So you can get a visitor peak.
Trying not to be too paranoid :lol: but this site was (is?) blocked last year by my ISP on my country...

Sometimes it's really scary when I read:

Then I feel like I'm alone here with those weird bots! :lol:

We hit another high on Monday. 393! Might have to start asking for small donations for a bigger server at this rate!

Just realized that Wikipedia include the corresponding SC link of many games in his 'external links' entry section. For example, in Knight Lore. Sometimes include a Mobygames or KLOV link too.

Maybe that's another reason of the number of visitors.

And of course it's also a reason to see this site works! Congrats!
