Drive-by slashdotting

About half an hour ago my ADSL router lit up like Christmas. From time to time someone will pound a site hosted on this end of it looking at images or Weber books [update, Thu AM: and still hasn&rsquol;t – but hallelieuyah for small mercies, hasn't got perceptibly worse, either], but it's usually pretty sporadic. This didn't let up.

So... punted around in the webserver logs, and lo and behold, Senectus had thoughtfully posted a link to my Lappyvator page in a SlashDot article about putting a PowerBook on a cardboard shelf. Because the cardboard shelf is so rivettingly exciting, my ADSL link is now as slow as muck, and getting worse. Oh, joy.
