Never mind the fact that my black car will get from 100-120mph in the time it takes his NA car to go 30-50mph - THE THROTTLE RESPONSE IS CRAPPY ERGO TURBO CARS ARE SLOW.

He stated the other day that since autox cars are only full throttle for 10% of the time power doesn't make a big difference on a track car. WTF

He also try to argued that the torque loss above 5.5K is better for going around corners... "traction control" he called it.

When you guys have a 39th place trophy plaque certificate of participation on display on your mantle, then we'll talk. Until then, keep your mouths shut and enjoy getting lapped by ME as I pass your slow-***, unresponsive 350whp lagwagons.

Don't forget my group buy! Click on the link in my sig!

Are they hosting from a True(tm) data center? In my book - and I work in this business - power and data lines go into a building from different directions so you don't have a single tree shut you down. Although here in Europe most stuff is below ground level.

Any hosting service that goes down due to a tree falling is not a service really...

Doesn't matter how many servers you have, you are only as strong as your weakest link - in this case, above ground data transmission. Gary should really be considering a real solution, something surrounded by concrete, multiple links (and not T1's) and the rest of the normal options that come with a proper facility.
