    That job would suck the week before the keynote. I don't care how many systems you throw in across all your farms you are still going to get destroyed. I'm sure the load average would go somewhere from ~.35 to ~120.35 after the store reopens. Not to mention things having to deal with someone accidentally posting pictures/data the day before the announcement when they are setting up the pages.

    So you're telling us that Apple's web sites will be busy on the 27th and sometimes web designers put stuff live when they shouldn't? Thanks. :rolleyes:

    There are trick to help reduce the load on the bandwith. On is decrease the max speed of everyone connected. Another is to rent server time from another company or temparaily devert some internal severs to hand the other load.

    Mix and match those things and it is easy to handle the increased load.
