    Definitely. Pttrns seems like one of those sites that with tons of caching can handle that kind of traffic without any problems. Hosting this up properly with decent servers on Digital Ocean, Ubiquity or Linode would be way less than $200. You could setup one proxy server, one app server, one db, one instance of something like memcache, and you should be golden. Would be interesting to hear more about the technical details. My bet is that probably out of those $2k, 20% or even less is going into hosting.
