BBC News on Newsmap, server meltdown.

Just woke up this morning to realize that Newsmap was down. Upon investigating it looks as if the DB has crashed because of a sudden traffic surge. Not sure yet where that is coming from as referrers are not very clear, but it appears that the BBC mentioned Newsmap last night within a section of their "Webscape" show.

I'm working on getting everything back up, in the meantime, please make sure to fullfill your daily news intake needs over at
