Microsoft take down Windows beta download, adding servers

I just checked in again for the first time since about 6:00 on the Windows 7 Beta download – got this message from Microsoft:

Thanks for your interest in the Windows 7 Beta. The volume has been phenomenal — we’re in the process of adding more servers to handle the demand. We’re sorry for the delay and we’ll re-post the Beta as soon as we can ensure a quality download experience.

I’m glad they noticed…  But their comment – phenomenal?  A blind man could have seen this in a crystal ball – c’mon people, be prepared…
