I don't think there was any danger, as it turns out, of exceeding the 2 gig
this time. But there was quite a spike:

Go to the "Daily Report" on our stats page to see the "spike."

Page requests Nov 20 = 74
Page requests Nov 21 = 3,632

This looks fine to me. Moreover, the quantity and quality of new volunteers
from the last couple of days is astounding.

Big THANK YOU to whomever was responsible for getting that article there.
Charlie Strauss? I have a feeling Charlie Strauss knows something about it.

Yes! There is time for them to jump in and help out. If we keep this up,
building the production system will be a lot of fun.
