    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
    question...hehe)

    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.
