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".

Does it REALLY matter?!?! 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!
