Yesterday, there was a special Lotto game in Belgium: 7.000.000 EUR as Christmas gift. If seems that too many visitors tried to check the online results. Game over! 😉
The RTBF website was in a strange state this afternoon: Due to their “End-of-Belgium” false announce yesterday, they were for sure slashdoted… I’m still trying to download the video 😉 [Update] ~4 hours later, same issue 😉
