It's been shifting about 7GB a day of HTTP traffic alone recently.
This is mostly because I've taken out the password restriction on the
CD images (www.uk.d.o is also cdimage.d.o) to compensate for Sunsite
Luckily its just been granted a load more bandwidth as a result of a
move from Netcom UK (who were generously giving us 0.5Mbit/s for free)
to GX Networks (www.global.net.uk) who are even more generously giving
us 10 Mbit/s.

Yes, AFAIK they had a disk failure, which prompted a software &
hardware upgrade that could have gone more smoothly than it did.
P.S. Thanks for the Thanks, it's nice to be appreciated :-)
