my node was overrun and kept crashing.  100k spots/hr times 200+ users DOES NOT fit through my outgoing dsl link which backs up the node till it runs out of memory.  If terry doesn't put in a number of user limit I will have to change to a members only node... even a max user limit is going to be ugly as most users will never get the word and will just keep connecting over and over... this will likely force me to change telnet ports also just to weed out the oblivious.

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?
