In the past 90 minutes, Kano's Mars color analysis on ATSNN.com -- www.atsnn.com... -- has received over 10,000 hits, and has
overwhelmed even our new Dual-Xeon server.
I've created a plain HTML version of the story to reduce server load during this time of Kano-Chaos... but it will only reduced the load for that
piece... people will likely still be clicking through to ATS and things will continue to be a bit slow.

It looks like the counter-measures are slowly bringing the board to a workable condition.
1) Webserver-based redirect to a static version of the story
2) ATSNN code disabled for now
3) ATS running in low-bandwidth mode
The processing time for the board PHP pages is workable... it's just that the webserver is a bit busy right now.
Your thread is approaching 40,000 views... most of them today.
And don't get too pumped up there "Dr. Kano" our Dual-Xeon may have been huffing-and-puffing, but it didn't go down! SlashDot is legendary for
taking servers down to a completely locked-up stage where a hard reboot is requireed. We survived!
