    Slashdotted! (Checkpoint Flyer review)

    Site's down thanks to the traffic crush from Slashdot, I guess.

    I have never actually viewed a site...

    before it got slashdotted. I know you guys were not happy, but it gave me a giggle.

    I have been on the 'Net since the days of gopher and lynx, and never heard of Slashdot. Always something more to learn, I guess. The Web is real big!

    Here's the Wikipedia entry describing the Slashdot effect. A reference link to this also appears in yesterday's blog.
