Ryan Block joins us from gdgt.com to talk about the high-trafficked Inauguration Day, the SEC investigation into Steve Jobs health, and of course the ubiquity of camels for everyone but me. But I really don't hate camels.

Inauguration records set

Today at noon eastern, global peak visible traffic across Internet
exchanges was 3.18 terabits per second. Within the U.S., 165 gigabits visible.

Yesterday’s global peak was 2.78tbps. Within the U.S., 117 gigabits per second visible.

November 4 2008, election night, global peak was 2.5 terabits per second, of which 79 gbps was in the U.S. This day last year, global peak was 1.38 tbps, of which 60 gbps was in
the U.S.

So election day wasn’t particularly special, interestingly, but today
was. Globally, 14% higher than yesterday, and 41% higher within the U.S.

Weekdays are always higher than weekends, and the whole thing grows quickly, so “the most recent weekday” is usually the prior high, as it was yesterday. Via Bill Woodcock at pch.net

BOL Crew,

On show 893, Tom mentioned that a new “earth size” planet had been discovered near a red dwarf star.
So we have a higher density planet (stronger gravity) circling a red star.
Hmmm. . . . Did they name this new planet Krypton?

Hello Buzztown,

The easiest way to get a browser on a machine that doesn't have one is to use http://ftp.
Microsoft should bundle lynx browser for the EU version of windows.
