And don't get me wrong - automation is a good thing, but I still strive for 
staticness. Take, and I wrote the CMS script 
that maintains both those sites. They're updateable from the web, and 
create all the wonderful little things they need to. And the script can be 
applied tons of other places (one person is using it as a simple guestbook) 
- but still, I deal with static sites only.

Poorly configured and optimized static sites don't really suffer 
slashdotting (I should know - Disobey has been slashdotted twice, and 
Gamegrene slashdotcommented once). I have noticed however, that php backed 
sites, cgi backed sites, and CF backed sites suffer far more frequently...
