LightBlueTouchpaper blog knocked temporarily offline by demand for free Ross Anderson book # 224Gb in 1 day

After the book announcement I got a bunch of reports that LightBlueTouchpaper was down (example) – so I pinged Ross:

We got hammered since my book went free with 224Gb of downloads, or about a quarter of a million chapter views. I got a wigging from sysadmin. Probably a transient fault.

Who says that security is a niche area of study? Anyway, it’s all back, now. :-)
