Steam got maxed out when CS 1.6 Beta was first released, in the end they stopped allowing people to sign-up and get the content.
Since the demand has gone down, the service has been running fine, but as you have *guessed* since all of the speculation that Valve are to release the High-Res Demo the demand has shot through the floor again [sigh].
So it doesn't surprise me at all!

Sounds to me like "steam" is a woefully inadequate platform, and a Bad Idea(TM) .
Come on, valve, you can do better than this.
