+ - White Shark Devours Research Site's Servers->

Submitted by Lucas123
Lucas123 writes: Katherine, a 14-foot, 2,300lbs. Great White Shark has become so popular with visitors to a research site tracking her daily movements that the site's servers have crashed and remained down for hours. The shark, one of dozens tagged for research by the non-profit global shark tracking project OCEARCH, typically cruises very close to shore up and down the Eastern Seaboard. That has attracted a lot interest from the swimming public. Currently, however, she's heading from Florida's west coast toward Texas. OCEARCH tags sharks with four different technologies to create a three-dimensional image of a shark's activities. On average, we're collecting 100 data points every second — 8.5 million data points per day.
