RE: Internet Backbone Index
Considering the fact that our web site has not been a large factor in our marketing direction, and the site has received less that 1000 "hits" per week on average, it was and currently is (IMHO) a perfect choice for our application. However, in the last couple of weeks, it's been "bumped" to a 133MHz Pentium with *gasp* a fast ethernet card (as a result of a power supply fan failure in the previous box). Perhaps it was my fault, but I never imagined anyone claiming to have any knowledge whatsoever would attempt to perform a test of "backbone" providers performance based upon said vendors web server(s). I guess they call that "naive". Chris A. Icide ---------- From: Tim Gibson[SMTP:[email protected]] Sent: Friday, June 27, 1997 2:45 AM To: Joseph T. Klein Cc: Chris A.

As long as it ain't some MS product clogging the lan with needless broadcasts and it's big enough to service those that are ignorant to think a national provider's web site *IS* a measure of their backbone/service.... BSDI is a damn fine product!
