Massachusetts election knocks CNN Offline

Apparently there is huge interest in the Mass election. I'm watching live precinct reports on CNN and their website went down. No doubt lots of other news sites are seeign a huge spike in traffic.  (I'm sure tomorrow we'll see articles about the traffic spike worldwide - or at least in the U.S.)
 
This was the message I got on politicalticker.blogs.cnn.com: (note it came up about a minute later)
