I conducted a ceremonial burial of our old Histonet Server on Friday, the 
little PPC 6100/60 (8 year old) just could not keep up with the demands 
of the increase in the number of subscribers to Histonet.  This machine 
has run without interruption (other than network problems locally) since 
the Histonet list was started  and the server was just not able to keep 
up with the traffic.

Welcome the new histonet server, a 4 year old PPC 5400/180.  This 
computer is a veteran of another venue, the student labs here at UT 
Southwestern.   It has been retired from that service but will now serve 
us for Histonet.

In observing this new friend's performance over the weekend, it is three 
times faster than the old system.  We still have the distinction of being 
the largest outbound source of email on our campus, accounting for 30% of 
all outbound traffic.  We now regularly send outbound 70,000 to 100,000 
messages a day.

Please let me know if you encounter any errors or problems with this new 
system by sending a quick note to hagler.herb@pathology.swmed.edu as I am 
subscribed to the digest mode of the server.

Keep those emails coming.....

Herb Hagler
