[thelist] Help: Extreme load on servers

This might be a little off-topic, but here goes...

I'm sitting on potentially a really big tech 
news story.

One of our sites, http://www.newmediawhore.com, is
where it will go.  After last month, when we got
mauled by a front-page referral from The Register, 
I'm a little concerned about what will happen
when this story is posted since we think it'll
get Registered, Slashdotted, and everything else
all at once.

This despite the fact we've got a hosted box at
Planet Online with a 10Mb connection.

What I'm after here is either (a) suggestions or
(b) offers of temporary mirrors and/or tertiary 
DNS servers (yes, it's that bad)
