The defaults on the URL builder for the event web service are to get a
whole years worth of events with no min magnitude. I would never be so
dumb as to click on that link, or at least I won't admit to it! But if
someone does then bad things start to happen like firefox locking up,
fans turning on and general laptop unhappiness. I am guessing that
your database is also probably not too happy about pulling every event
from the last year out of the database and stuffing it into xml for no
good reason.

Maybe something a little smaller, like a week or a day, would be a
better choice than a year as the default.

Just a thought...
