I had to laugh at the fools predicting the entire Internet could "melt
down" due to this romance novel being released.

But, I think the impressive traffic went to cnn with 340000 hits/minute
which is their highest load ever.  Of course, that does help put into
perspective just how important benchmarks on static content are or are
not since that is under 6000 hits/sec and can easily be balanced across
many machines pretty cheaply.
