Now, that's blog traffic!

Some very strange thing has happened to my blog traffic today.  The number of hits is over twice the normal traffic.  As much as I'd like to think that it's the result of something interesting I wrote, I doubt it.  Instead it looks like some kind of spam attack, using phantoms servers from around the world.  Look at this distribution of originating countries!  (Each image has a different scale.)

Maybe someone on the "other side of the world" thinks you are still affiliated with BID?

Were there similar attacks there or other Harvard affiliated hospitals or schools?
