To be fair to them - having chatted a lot to them since I posted
initially, this started as something very small, between mates type
thing but somewhere it caught the imagination and they have been running
after it since. No doubt the bandwidth costs will clobber them soon enough.
Still... as an extreme test given the circumstances, I think it ranks
pretty highly ? We do get questions about server load in the forums and
we are - as yet - unable to give definitive answers. Not that this does,
but those issues are not answerable. Unless someone wants to take a shot ?
