Distributed Proofreading's slashdotting

The Distributed Proofreading site assigns random pages from scanned-in or re-keyed public domain texts that are being prepared for the Gutenberg Project library to volunteer proofers who correct the errors and check them back in. After a recent slashdotting, the sites pages proofed per day rate went from less than 1,000 pages/day to over 10,000. At this rate, they'll have the entire public domain up in jig time.
