[UseNet headers trimmed. See giwer.0696 for complete text] From: firstname.lastname@example.org (Matt Giwer) Date: June 17, 1996 Message-ID: <email@example.com> Ken McVay OBC wrote: "Yup. Nizkor.almanac.bc.ca is a simple 486 Dx25, connected via 28.8 Kb PPP link. It is barely able to keep up with the 700 to 900 daily visitors it gets now, and our stats (http://www.almanac.bc.ca/stats/) suggest that we have max'd our bandwidth. Mr. Giwer thoughtfully replied: "Bingo! Exactly what I said. You don't even have a T1 line. Am I right or am I right!?! "You have a primitive piece of shit computer over a phone line exactly as I said." Upon receipt of Mr. Giwer's polite observations above, Nizkor took the following action, apologizing for the delays: 1. June 24, 1996: Added Intel-based UNIX mirror in Toronto, with 128K ISDN bandwidth. 2. July 17, 1996: Added SUN SPARC2 mirror in Toronto, with T1 bandwidth. 3. August 6, 1996: Added SUN Ultra 170 in Texas, with 128K ISDN bandwidth, plus RealAudio server and Excite search engine. The system is equipped with 4.5 gigs of high speed SCSI disks, a CDROM jukebox and WORM drive. 4. August 6, 1996: Added SUN SPARC5 in Texas, with 128K ISDN bandwidth. The system is equipped with 4.5 gigs of fast storage, and a CDROM reader. 5. High-speed German mirror site added in mid-August, 1996 Nizkor notes with satisfaction that Mr. Giwer no longer complains about Nizkor's bandwidth or hardware. It would appear that even the most vulgar of trolls knows when to shut up.
