    SubjectRe: [OFFTOPIC] Mailing Lists

    vger is frequently down and there is quite a bit of e-mail going around

    It was down only because I was in Germany all last week and could only
    attend to the machine once every 2 or 3 days while I was there...

    (last Monday 120.000 on .com-exploder and 50.000 on .edu exploder!)

    Could we come up with a scheme to decentralize the mailing lists so that
    one host cannot result in everything failing and some means of automatic
    load determination? Sounds complicated... Maybe someone here has an idea
    to do it in a simple and easy way.

    I have a 400MB/day limit by the provider on the .com exploder and I was
    definitely over it on Monday.

    No, it must be centralized to a certain extent, there must be a big
    red firetruck, driven by one person/site. This is necessary for the
    same reasons that we centralize the kernel sources at one
    place/person, with Linus wherever he is.

    Yow! 11.26 MB/s remote host TCP bandwidth & ////
    199 usec remote TCP latency over 100Mb/s ////
    ethernet. Beat that! ////
