Even with months of preparation and precautions, multiple servers installed, redundant lines connected to the Internet to carry the load in case of crashes or overloads, big power supplies installed in case the power went out, and the other considerations given to The World eBook Fair, participants from the four corners of the Earth to retrieve eBooks in one hundred languages still managed to over load our servers in an effort to give 1/3 million eBooks away to the world.

However, even though our servers never went down many have reported problems with slow connection speeds or missing pages. This is due to the high traffic volume that the site is receiving.

Plans are already being made to add even more robust high speed servers to be online by July 7th or 8th.
