Or maybe a lot of us mirrored it locally. I had the report and the
President's response(s) up here around 2200 EDT the day it came out and so
far something like 10-15% of our subscriber base has hit our local copy.
Then add to that the increased use of caching these days (we run a small
caching proxy server). Seems plausible to me that the traffic increased
initially but fell off as the report got cached and mirrored locally.
The servers had to have been a bottleneck, too. The LOC and CNN servers
seemed to be doing reasonably well, but for a while the report was
unavailable at LOC while they fixed errors in the footnotes. The
Whitehouse servers/connections, which have never been stellar, seemed to
have been hammered pretty badly at one point...
