I don't have traceroutes kept, but during that night when Pelosi announced the bill was available for all to download, I tried to get to that page and it was extremely slow. Doing a traceroute didn't *seem* to end at an akamai point. My memory could be in error. Question: Is it possible to setup an akamai feed in hours once you know your website is to be swamped ? Obviously, the system managers there might not have been warned in advance that the politicians would place a huge load on their servers. But once they realised it, is it conceivable that they quickly setup an akamai feed ? Or is that something which takes weeks to setup ?
