Someone who has used the endpoint dbpedia.org/sparql intensively
knows what i mean:

After one or two hours or so, it hangs, i try dbpedia.org with FFox,
Opera, IE,
it hangs also, after 5 minutes i try dbpedia.org, i see the page,
for dbpedia.org/sparql i put my simple query again, it is ok.

Since years it is the same story in the same rhythm.

But if someone clicks dbpedoa.org only once, then he has of course
also the time to write such a nonsense like you did it above from:

'FZI Forschungszentrum Informatik an der Universitšt Karlsruhe'

And if i send a mail the server doesnt't work properly,
i can get perhaps a reply from Chris Bizer suggesting

'maintanance work on the DBpedia server'...

i think there has been so much maintenance work there that even
a simple click on dbpedia.org was hanging too oft comparing to
the homepage of my grandma...
