Combat fraud and increase customer satisfaction

George W. Bush's Website took a hammering along with a heap of newswires as presidential election fever gripped surfers on Tuesday night.

His campaign site took an average of 17.45 seconds to load between 9pm and 11.30pm as the Republican States started to stack up. Most of the time (90 per cent) George Dubya's corner of cyberspace was so popular it took longer than two minutes to gain access to his site.

News sites were also hit by surfers eager to know who would be grinning out from the White House for the next four years. Many either fell over or simply took ages to access - some showed download times of more than 50 seconds, up to six times higher than the average time on Monday. MSNBC.com, which had promised full election coverage, showed uneven performance throughout the evening.

According to Keynote Systems, the outfit that monitored the sites for the survey, Al Gore's site threw up no such problems from fans logging on in droves to access his site. His supporters must have had better things to do with their time as the site belonging to the Democrat (also the guy who once claimed he invented the Internet) remained dead easy to get onto all night. reg;
