We're fighting about ONE machine here? Huh huh, kids... join a BIGGER
LEAGUE! ;) Remember NEVER underestimate the collective cycles of a lo-flying
747 full of palmtops. Wait, thats not it... a roomfull of 486s really
kicks ass tho, due to the assembly clients.

While I might not be a university (tho I dont think Id want to be
anyway), and Im not representing a corporation or anything (well not
one, but many small ones are involved), the uPowered effort is kicking
out 30.5Mk/s average, based on a 6 hour rolling average -- that was the
max (we achieved today, tho the main server was down part of the day,
which affects our 24hr avg), based on my prolly semi flaky u2t proxy
log processor (which I will post to the list soon when I fix it up
alot).

Our competitors in my mind are onenet.net, claris.com, and at the top
of the !.edu is apple.com. (Waiting for the gateway.deschall stats to
be differentiated so we can see uPowered.org KICKING, uh, people
lower down in the stats. ;)

(Is onenet.net really non .edu? whois onenet.net...)

If anyone cares, the stats for our gateway are in horribly lo-tek
Lynxesque _TEXT_ at http://solar.upowered.org/proxy.stats. Ya ya, I
will be fixing them up soon, right after I finish some real work
writing some client/server TCP code in Perl, copying from the Perl5
book... hmm, Justin, I see where you got your variable names! :)
