### Overheated blog

Dear readers! Let me declare a minor interruption of new postings for a day or more. This blog has been overheated because of the interview with Czech President Václav Klaus about global warming.

When the interview was linked as a "flash" special report on drudgereport.com, which is by the way a politically neutral website, I was sure that the servers could easily withstand something like ten thousand visits a day - unlike the websites of the U.S. senate :-) - because it has easily survived the Instalanche. What I found impressive is the CERN server that probably has to send 10,000 times 4 MB of the LHC songs a day. ;-)

Today, as the links to the interview appeared on hundreds of blogs and especially the main page of servers like digg.com, I became less certain about the capacity of all the servers providing files for this blog.

Figure 1: Blog posts tracked by Technorati that contain "Vaclav Klaus".

If you're interested in recent stories about Václav Klaus, he's visiting Japan and will return to Europe on 2/17. If you open news.google.com and search for vaclav-klaus, you will see that he has been given another honorary degree in Tokyo, met representatives of the Japanese industry, and plans to meet the emperor soon. ;-)

Thanks for your understanding and "see" you soon.
