Traffic Visualization Generated From Hacker News via Logstalgia

I wanted to play with Logstalgia (https://github.com/acaudwell/Logstalgia) a little so I found an older Apache log file back in Jan 2013 from my website when I was fortunate to get some votes and get on the first page on Hacker News. The video is using standard Logstalgia compiled on Ubuntu 13.10. I accelerated the speed during capture and put a minute or two of the log in prior to HN activity to provide a sense of normal before 14:49 when things get crazy.
