Site with Ohio state workers' salaries overwhelmed by searches

A new database that lists Ohio state employees' salaries and wages was such a hit that a server linked to it crashed, the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

The searchable database has salaries for 2011 for all state workers and wages for other public workers as recent as 2010, the article added.

The site was averaging about 300 searches a minute on Aug. 31, which comes to about 200,000 searches in one day, the story continued.
