Er... there's lots!  Most of the FairFax media sites picked up the Sydney
Morning Herald article yesterday, and now that the latest Brisbane CBD and
Oxley surveys are up, the Brisbane Courier Mail and Brisbane Times linked
directly to us this morning (both seem to be rotating many stories about the
floods now).  So traffic is pretty damn high; we cranked up the major
Internet link's speed yesterday and we'll hold that whilst it's needed.  But
it's a pretty scalable architecture and it's working!
We're noting the links to us on our Facebook/twitter feeds also, as well as
announcing the surveys as they go online (I think Ipswitch is next).
