"Show HN: I made a database of remote companies (remotebase.io)"

Just saw this on HN, almost the top post as of posting this.
Looks like a neat little Meteor app for those in North America.
Always nice to see Meteor in the wild.

Server is dying due to traffic. What can I do?

Not entirely sure how the app works but as of now visiting the website does not load anything for me at all.
There is a big red loading icon continuously spinning without responding to any filters and so on.
Could it be the app cannot handle the traffic been on HN first page?

Yes. HN + Product Hunt traffic was too much for my server.

Also I did not have index on DB, and did not set MONGO_OPLOG_URL.
