Web flooded as people seek info on attacks

Author: JT Smith

Reported at CNET News.com: "Moments after airplanes separately crashed into
both towers of the World Trade Center, and then later
the Pentagon, Web sites for the major news outlets
were swamped by an overflow of traffic.

Major Web news outlets such as CNN.com, MSNBC.com,
Yahoo News, ABCNews.com and FoxNews.com have been
slow to respond.

Keynote Systems, which measures Internet performance, said that by late morning the Web sites it
tracks were taking slightly longer to reach--more than four seconds, instead of the average 3.5
seconds."
