    Hi folks, just musing...

     From an ops perspective, wonder just how much traffic caused:

      "This morning, our engineers sounded the alarms ... and we have
    installed a digital version of a traffic cop. We enacted stopgaps that
    we planned for last night. We had hoped we didn't have to."
            --Jeff Ventura, communications director for the House's chief
    administrator. (from http://www.cnn.com/2008/POLITICS/09/30/congress.website/index.html)

    Don't .govs have enough b/w or at least ability to add b/w in order to
    satisfy their 'public outreach/information' role? (not a rhetorical

    It also seems to me that adding load balancing, firewall, throttling,
    etc methods for traffic shaping might actually make the problem worse
    by adding yet another layer(s) of hardware/software that may be prone
    to bottlenecking or overloading.
