The RBN's throughput in this weekend's contest set an all-new high, 
averaging about 33 spots per second from 110-120 Skimmers 
simultaneously.   We made 2.8 million spots on Saturday and 2.9 million 
on Sunday

The DX Spider telnet server ran as much as 35 minutes behind on 
Saturday, but did not crash, while the AR Cluster V6 server ran smoothly 
and on time all weekend, so far as we can tell.  First priority will be 
finding a solution for the telnet.reversebeacon.net Telnet node before 

Any feedback will be very welcome - direct e-mail please, so as not to 
clog the reflector.  In particular, did you use filtering, including the 
CT1BOH Skimmer quality filters on AR Cluster V6?  How did they work for you?
