Multi part binary reception

 No we have a DS3 between here and UUnet.  There is tons of traffic flowing
over the network.  How much bandwidth does a full feed take, I figure I am
getting about 10% of all articles right now, and I am using like 5Mb/s.  

I will mess with the max conns tonight.  I thought I had it set to 0.

   Have you played with max-connections in incoming.conf? (Does the
incoming rate change as it's increased or decreased?)

   Is there any packet loss between you and the UUnet feeder?
