I'm running Apache 2 + PHP 5.x ... with a PostgreSQL 8.1.4 database 
backedn to it ... I have a new Dual-CPU HP Proliant server on its way, 
upon which I'll put a second Apache 2 server and setup RR DNS so that 
both servers will answer and accept reports ...

I've got 8 servers in place if things can't keep up, and more being added 
... I'm not too worried about either server(s) or bandwidth ... and even 
less worried seeing that ppl have actually responded well to the whole 
thing ...
