Handling the load

Well, last month it was the Mozilla folks who hyped the release of Firefox 3.0 and then had their servers fold under the load.  Today, it seems to be the iTunes site wilting under the load of all the folks trying to activate their new iPhones.  If you are among those folks (obviously you aren't reading this from your iPhone then), all we can say is keep trying, the spike eventually decays to a point where the system can handle the load, but that is obviously of little solace to those who are without a phone at the moment.

I will be teaching next: Reverse-Engineering Malware: Malware Analysis Tools and Techniques - SANS Gulf Region 2020
