  • I very much doubt they ran out of bandwidth, more likely the issue lay with Apache and it’s notorious inability to handle large numbers of connections without careful configuration. Especially with everyone spamming F5, options like KeepAlive being left enabled would have severely hampered site performance with the symptoms people were seeing- connections dropping or not even being established, which would be inconsistent with bandwidth saturation.

No public wish lists :(
