Attached is a poll - vote for the (i) best day and (ii) best time on that day for going online and trying to beat the record. Depending on results, I will post a time and date for our world record attempt
Uhh... so you want to stress the bandwidth of the system as much as possible to see if it breaks? Maybe not such a good idea.
Recognizing the harmless and innocent spirit of your proposal, I suggest we find other ways to feel the love.
Maybe we can find a date to all hum Kumbaya
at the same time?
(I know you mean this in a lighthearted way, but the inadvertent flooding of a server can have unpleasant consequences. Maybe Andy can shed more light.)
