Thanks Brian, I've set squid to quick_abort 0 0 0 now. Its made quite a diff
to the cache. It was starting to slow down real bad! In fact i upgraded to
1.1.x just recentley after running the 1.0.x versions which i always had
quick abort turned on in them as it slowed things down to much if it wasn't.
Don't know why i didn't turn it on in the 1.1.x vers but its on now and
things are flying once again!
The modem lines are from people dialling into me, Not much control over them
i'm afraid!
