What is the monthly bandwidth use of the dot? 

I have a dedicated server running at Verio that is extremely reliable. It's a 
Linux machine, PIII Coppermine, 256 megs RAM, Apache (latest), Mysql, etc. 
18gb SCSI drive is doing about 25mb/sec, at 45% capacity. 

Latest uptime:

  2:30pm  up 349 days, 22:00,  1 user,  load average: 0.12, 0.14, 0.13

It hosts about 20 sites currently and is pretty underutilized. Other sites 
include http://www.groupit.org, http://www.digitalspinner.com, 
http://www.marketingtool.com, etc. I've had a machine at Verio since 1998, 
and it will be staying there at least until mid-2003.

http://www.dedicatedserver.com. There is plenty of bandwidth, to be sure,

If noone else of greater strategic importance steps up to donate hosting 
resources then I'd be happy to provide a home for the dot.
