Sounds interesting Swosho. Any tech folks out there give us an idea
of the pros and cons?

Hi all, I don't know if this is the correct place to float this idea,
I'll give it a whirl and see what response I get.

Here in Australia, there are several reflectors hooked together via a
high speed link... connecting with one connects you to the whole lot.
I was wondering if the same could be done with the ever popular
Cornell reflector... expecially internationally... The data rates
presently to
Australia are abysmal, but I think that this may be a deliberate
action to prevent overloading an already busy international line. I
realize that this would require the cooperation of reflector owners,
but the results could be well worth the effort... especially in
increased data rates, with only a local increase in traffic.

What do you think?
