Yesterday, around 1PM ET, we saw a nearly 40% increase in inbound
traffic, almost all from Akamai.  It continued until around 2AM this
morning, though, at one point, the traffic switched providers. 
Interestingly enough, we are peered directly with Akamai at Equnix-
Ashburn, and at no point did this traffic use that link.
 
Last time we saw such discrete large inbound flows was the World Cup.
