Election Day Overload

I clicked over to Instapundit and found it strange that I could not get through, even after trying again an hour later. LGF and Henley are also down. As far as I know, all use Hosting Matters. Either the Election Day traffic is putting a heavy load on Hosting Matters, or they are suffering from DOS attacks like they did a few months ago. I suspect it's the former.

Although blogosphere traffic reached a major peak in March 2003 with the start of the Iraq War, gains this year for regular traffic have for the most part eclipsed those levels. Though I have no absolute proof, I can say with confidence that today is the highest traffic day in blogosphere history.
