[CQ-Contest] No DX Summit spots for 18 February!

I noticed that the DX Clusters such as OH2AQ (and my own) were being hit 
much harder than normal over the weekend. I had almost 4,000 simultaneous 
connections at one time to the web service, whereas there were only 13 
direct connections to the actual cluster node which sits behind the web 
service. My server was streaming an average of 2 megabits/second of DX 
cluster data during the contest.

FWIW in two weeks I am going to bring a new dual XEON server online to 
handle the load.

Thank goodness I don't pay for the bandwidth!
