	Where does my network end and the Internet in general begin?

	Where does your testing equipment end and the Internet
	in general begin?

	Along those lines, I'm happy to announce that I'm prepared
	to offer one megabyte of FREE web space to any backbone.
	It will be hosted on www.cybernothing.org, a FreeBSD
	machine running Apache, currently co-located with Erol's
	and soon to move to the Priori office.

	Every backbone whose web page is hosted on my server is
	almost guranteed to have equal network performance in the
	eyes of Keynote, Boardwatch, and anybody nieve enough to
	believe them.

	I'll even put the same 10k file in each directory.  *grin*
