I did neither of those and lost about 20% of the usual traffic in the past 3
days (I think Friday included though). Referrals accounted for the most
prominent difference.

I assumed I was one simply of those affected by people's vacation from work.
My site has very little (if anything) that is related to leisure. Moreover,
my code downloads, which reside on a different site (MATLAB) show more or
less the same trend.

I you are talking about 1-script.com, consider the fact that people take
their end of August vacation.
