"Sniffer dog" site overwhelmed with traffic: The Australian website www.snifferdogalert.com has had to temporarily shut down to upgrade its server due to overwhelming web traffic. The site sends subscribers urgent SMS text messages when their field scouts detect police drug sniffer dogs in their vicinity. Although Australian NSW Police Minister has asked that the site be taken down, the website and associated service is apparently legal under Austrialian law.
