I'm keeping my bittorrent running, and I have pushed out 10GB of data 
so far, with a rate between 400-1000KB/sec. :)

Something like 150 people connected at the moment with a cursory glance 
at netstat, so its making people happy.

BTW, great release. Congrats to the Fedora project developers. I love 
the yum support in up2date. We've been playing with it here, and it 
suits us much better than the rhn stuff used to. We keep a local mirror 
for 100 machines or so, and synch off that, makes it fast.
