We would, we would!  A big thank-you to the folks at SURANET for
putting up the service.

PS: A 112Kbps line from Montreal to Princeton bears most of the brunt
of the archie impact.  There's a 224Kbps line from Toronto to Ithaca
and a 56Kbps link from Vancouver to Seattle.  Most CA*net and regional
internal connectivity is 56Kbps.
