Web site going to be mentioned on TV

Hi, I just found out that in about an hour my website is going to be mentioned on G4-TechTV's "Around the Web."

I really have no idea how large an audience G4 has or how much traffic from the exposure I should expect. I have a 320MB VPS that can handle a pretty good load but I'm a little worried. They will be mentioning my url as well as printing in on the screen for about 10 seconds.

Any suggestions or ideas of what i can maybe expect? Would adding extra 512 RAM be a good precaution and or tweaking my apache config?

How did it go? I'm not familiar with the show you mentioned so unfortunately I don't have much advice. I'd be interested to hear how your setup handled everything though.

If you're expecting a big influx of traffic then you would want to contact your host to alert them to the situation. They may have some suggestions for you, but even if they don't you would want to let them know so that they won't pull your site.
