600 hits a second

“When Rowling used the site to reveal the title of the sixth book in the series, Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince, it received a peak of 600 “hits” per second, with 16 million in a 12-hour period. “

Stolen from todays SMH.

Rowling’s Site has had an estimated 220million hits in the past eight weeks. That’s going to be one huge bandwidth bill!
