wcarchive.cdrom.com, the world's busiest FTP server, set a new record for traffic on May 24th, when it served
1.39 Terabytes of data to the world over the 24 hour period ending that morning. The high traffic is largely due to the recent releases of RedHat 6.0
and Slackware 4.0, which are mirrored on the server. wcarchive is a FreeBSD system on a Micron Pentium-III Xeon 500, and has long been a shining
