There may also be a slight "secondary slashdot" late in the afternoon US
time. Generally I'ev seen the slashdot effect being "worse" ni the late
afternoon US time.

<statement boldness="probably a bit on the high side">
Then again, I'm personally in the camp that beleive the slashdot effect
is a myth spread by people who can't design web applications properly
(hey, the most common sign of the slashdot effect is the 'failed to
connect to mysql' error after all). Sure, some are bandwidth related,
but most are just the box folding completely because the app is badly
