Let me say that they both suck (the servers).

Totally ........ I stayed with CN until the end, but they have nothing more than the top three before the server kept shutting me off.

At least I got to follow the race as they posted the commentary .......

I'll second (...third....fourth...) that. Demand has shut down both sites
for a while. Maybe they'll get their act together by stage 13 or so.
here's hoping..

They could fork over the doe for extra pipes in July if they
wanted but since it's pricey, I think not. Several T3's
would do or how about OC-12 or even 48 surely would be
enough. No that's big bucks! I wonder how many gigs outgoing
they run a day now? They are pretty efficient since they
don't offer video clips or fancy flash screens. I like their
down and dirty homepage.

I was able to get the Eurosport ticker just fine whent he
others started to lag. Also, OLNTV.com has a ticker that
worked pretty well.

We've fixed it now and it should be the same speed as the
Giro pages, which were quite efficient.

As dore the New York Times. (Free registration required.) I
haven't checked it out during crunch time because I haven't
been shut out of cyclingnews yet.

With Velonews servers right up the road (just did a
traceroute) I'm getting shut out in the last half hour more
often than I'm getting the ticker.

Darn.

That must mean Cycling is becoming a mainstream sport, not
just enjoyed by us elitist snobs.

Where's that copy of OSQ...

Too bad it's not easy making enough money to do really big
upgrades when you're offering a *FREE* service to people...

Another way of looking at it might be: Where are all these
people the rest of the year? If they were doing such heavy
numbers at times other than the 'Tour, ad revenue might be
outasight!

I admire your patience. Keep up the great work.
