Just popping my head up above the fury of today's market bashing to offer a little perspective of the techie kind. A colleague has noted we hit several records for electronic message traffic last Friday, 5 August 2011. I pass these along not to pat ourselves on the back but to let you know that if you felt the world was spinning awful fast on Friday, that's because it was.
I haven't heard anything yet about today's message traffic, but will pass along if I get something. I know that system usage is not at the top of most people's worry list on a day like today, but I also know the ops people out there sweat this stuff, and hey, don't shoot me, I'm just the color guy.
