At long last, the new K5 server, named "bubba", is up and running. It's set up to run the site, and the final task is getting some load testing and tuning done, so I need your help. Basically, use the test site, at http://bubba.kuro5hin.org, just like you would the regular site. Be warned! Anything you do will be wiped out in a few days when it goes live for real, so don't post anything you care about over there!
So have at it. The only thing I ask is that you not do anything silly like try to packet the machine to death, as that wouldn't really be helpful. Hammering on Scoop is ok, since I want to know how it holds up. This is just a general-use load test. Have fun!
Update [2001-8-6 23:30:50 by rusty]: It's dead temporarily. It seems to have one flaky processor. This happened before too. Should be back up in due time...
