Chris and Chris,
Mea culpa - I set up a response time test using Gomez (http://www.gomez.com) and then got so d*mned busy with an internet startup down here in Tampa that I permitted the test and gathered data to expire. Chris Hammond I promised you a walk through as a follow on to the sample I sent, and I now must admit I cannot.
This little 24x7 job I am on will keep me fatigued through March 1st, and I won't make the mistake of over-promising again. Suffice to say that the data I obtained by testing the forums list page from a half-dozen or so locations on the Internet backbone told me that in general the site was adequately fast and consistant.
Thanks to you, and to all who keep this forum alive.
If you have a specific need for testing services, send email to email@example.com and I will rise to the occaison.
