Europeana - up yesterday and down today!

Europe's digital diary, Europeana, went online yesterday. It is a portal to search and browse the major art and culture collections. Unfortunately, as the site says today , its 'popularity has brought it down' and it needs tinkering to serve the millions of users it targeted. Did the developers under-estimate the sheer volume of interest the site would generate not just in Europe but across the world? In the meantime, the current site is in development mode and in English only. Bookmark it and check on it sometime later.
