On 26 July 2001 wikipedia suffered from the slashdot effect and posted the following message:

We have been slashdotted, so we are having a highly busy day. If you get an 'edit lock' error, please just wait a few minutes and submit again. Our system isn't accustomed to this much progress this quickly!

That message was prompted by this post on Slashdot.
