    Yeah ... that happened to the council site when we had the bad weather in Feb, but they have improved it all now and don't have a problem. A pretty good, load balanced sharepoint front end, with feeds that get pulled of by the local radio stations so that they have quick access to the info for news reports.

    Northamptonshire CC even have general news and info going out via twitter now, often with some 'good news' stories or raising awareness of projects.

    That's a pretty good idea, would cut out on all the MySQL queries and such that are carried out by lets say a Joomla website.

    Yeah thats a good idea
    To a certain extent it would depend on other schools doing the same to reduce the load as well?

    Ours died yesterday and today as it got hit for weather news. As in, died completely in a 'Service unavailable' kinda way, so couldn't even make a plain HTML page...

    I went after some more info of my own and found this:
    Reverse IP Lookup - Find Other Web Sites Hosted on a Web Server

    From where I discovered EMBC serve 151 school sites (Northants and Notts) through one IP!
    (I imagine this is common with clustered servers/virtualisation and whatnot, but you can bet the EMBC implementation leaves a lot to be desired!)
