Hmm... Apparently Entropy and friends became overloaded
when I moved *.com fanout service from Finland to Ohio (USA).

VGER in itself is not big enough a machine to deliver directly
to the entire world and also do Majordomo magics, be home of
Linux kernel source CVS tree, etc. Thus it uses other machines
to handle deliveries to parts of the recipient address space;
fanout servers. VGER does deliver to top-level domains:
us ca mil gov int
(plus some infrequent others where special fanout does not make
sense.) VGER all by itself can't handle the big-four:
com net org edu
all of which are mostly US based addresses anyway, so going
twice under the atlantic does not make sense.

Apparently Entropy overloaded when I added .com and .org to
its .edu repertoire. Oh well, machines I use at FUNET for
VGER fanouts are not big monsters, in fact fanouting is their
secondary role, yet for them that fanout generated load is
peanuts... Thus it must be matter of software that I use vs.
what Entropy uses.
