So olduse.net has been on the top of Hacker News, and Slashdotted, and bounced around the twittersphere since opening a few days ago.

There have been a quarter million hits to the web. Our lastlogs are bulging with 50 thousand invididual logins to the shell servers to run rtin via the web.

And 80000 individual reads of Usenet posts. Since there are only 784 posts on Usenet so far, each has been read an average of 100 times. That's possibly more than they were read the first time around, 30 years ago!

Thanks for your interest. We're now able to handle the load well, and all but 30 posts have now been successfully imported into the incoming news spool for uucp to find over the next ten years.
