Folks, please do not host copies of the video within the network here. Whatever your position on the availability of the video itself may be, from a technical standpoint, the network disruption created by having it on a server within this network is significant and unfairly impacts your fellow residents. We will be going through the servers looking for any copies, so if you receive a notice that we’ve disabled it, please abide by the notice and do not reenable it. Thanks.
Considering that I racked up nearly 100 gigs of bandwidth usage by hosting the video for just a few hours–well after the craze was subsiding–I can only imagine. I’m surprised the sites weren’t all crashing, considering that HostingMatters hosts InstaPundit, Wizbang, Backcountry Conservative, ASV, OTB, and several other sites that were affected by the surge.
