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 ?
