Movable Type – A WordPress 2.5 Upgrade Guide, by Anil Dash

[he goes on and on and on]…Question: How should you greet the onrush of visitors to your site when you get onto the homepage of Digg or Reddit? Answer: Not with a Database Connection Error. …[and on and on]

Hah! How bout when you get an onrush of visitors from… your own back-end? And you get a Database Connection Error because saving a new entwy is just a widdew bit too hawd for poow widdwe MT? And then it takes down your whole server and everyone else on it? Is a Database Connection Error okay then?
