Yesterday, I had trouble accessing my own site from my WinXP machine. It was really slow. It didn't make too much sense. So I ssh'd to my FreeBSD machine and ran netstat on it. I saw a LARGE number of connections to port 80 (http). I don't know who all these people were, or why they were accessing my website - I mean there's not that much to see on my website... That too, enough connections to actually make it slow to access from my Win XP machine, which is on the same network! Weird...

the reason for this traffic was a ISO in your pub folder (Office 2003). I was one of this visitors to. The link to your page came from a Forum. Sorry about this disturbing but you can see there are a lots of people looking for this ISO.

Ah! Thanks for the explanation Rudi! Well, I took it down – besides, I doubt it was very legal 😉
Thanks for the birthday wishes, ed 🙂
Not so sure if it was legal but very nice. Hard to find on the net as i wrote before. I’m still locking for this.
by the way I like your web design. ..
and happy birthday from me to
Thanks for the wishes, Rudi! Also, I’m glad you like the design of my website!
I used BitTorrent and Suprnova to find the ISO. I am sure you will be able to find it too! Good luck!
