Heh. I just deleted my email, which was going to say we needed someone to
provide some real-world numbers. Thanks!
You need WP-Cache, query-caching, lots of RAM, lighttpd or thttpd (at the
least for images!), and a TON of network bandwidth. Average cheap shared
server won't even come close. High-end multi-cpu shared box might, but
they'd shut down the site within the first 10 minutes of extreme load... ;)
