This is disturbing news. Is this a common response time for being served
by my server? It's a 486 running Linux and doing nothing else. Would
y'all wander a bit through my home pages at your convenience and tell me if
you're seeing this as typical. If so, I have a real problem because I
don't know what to do - it's a dedicated machine... :-(
