Our server can handle hundreds of thousands of hits at any single time, but it canit handle what weire getting now. We started receiving orders for OS X at 3 AM in the states. We have had calls from Canada and Denmark, but we donit export from the Apple Store.
Again, the Apple Store Web site is back up and accessible as of this writing and is accepting orders for Mac OS X Beta! Thanks to the many Observers who wrote to us with their observations, with special thanks to David Schultz, Editor-in-Chief of Applelust.com.
