slashdot effect

<jargon> An effect where a document on a WWW server is linked to from another, popular, site, with the resultant traffic overloading the server so that a connection cannot be made to it. This is especially likely if the server is running Microsoft IIS.

The term was coined by readers of the Unix advocacy web site slashdot.org.
