C-Net, Washington Post, offer reachable news alternative in wake of attacks
Posted Tuesday, September 11, 2001 10:35 AM | Contributed by Jeff
While traditional news sources are nearly unreachable, two sites beat Internet bottelneck following a series of terrorist attacks that have likely killed thousands of people in the US. Since you're obviously not having any problem reaching CoasterBuzz, check out the following links for news:
Washington Post - They apparently have some amazing trick going serving via Akamai. Site loads very quickly.
C-Net's News.com - Traditionally a tech news site, they've got a good lock on getting the wire reports up.
This date will live in infamy. I believe that this is the worst act of terrorism anywhere. This will likely start WWIII. I hope that everyone on this board is ok, and that their families are ok as well. I hope that whoever did this will not just be destroyed, but wiped off the face of the earth.
my heart goes out to all those affected by this tragedy. I pray that this as as far as this terrorist act goes. hearing report after report of incidents was hard enough. may the souls of all those who have passed today rest in peace with their creator. ----------------- Jay and Silent Bob have left the building ~Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back
this is so sad! My heart goes out to the ones who lost their life. When the trade centers wen't down people were auctally jumpig from 80 stories up to get out...a coupel was even holding hands! omg! ----------------- Best woodie: The Beast Best steel: MF Best park: IOA! Get to the point... cedar point!
This overshadows Pearl Harbor as the most infamous day in American History. Pearl Harbor was a military attack on a military base, but this was a CIVILIAN attack. This was a heinous action, and the US will punish the perpetrator with impunity, whether it be group or country (most likely a combination of the two, seeing how devastating it really was). Prayers go out to those who were affected by these attacks and their families.
Thanks for posting this on your site, Jeff, even if it's not coaster related. Since CB is my homepage, it stopped me from going to some of the more traditional news sites and getting frustrated.

9-11-01 This is the next Pearl Harbor. I can't believe this happened on American Soil. My prays go out to anyone who had relatives involved in this incident or anybody who was at all effected by this. Those people who are cheering because a bunch of Americans are dead make me sick!
911 is a good theroy, but think about this. The world trade center formed a 11, flight 11, today's date 11... I'm too young to die (I think)

This is a very very sad day. This attack is and will start another war. There is no doubt about that. With all the middle east countries supporting these acts of violence and all of the Europe countries supporting us I am scared to see what is going to happen. What is even scarier is who's fighting who and what side will China and Russia take. There are a lot of countries out there that hate U.S I think this could have very well started another World War 3. Maybe this is my generations turn to fight. God help everyone and if you get a chance please donate some blood to a bloodbank.
